    *BUMP*

    Now that IE9 is all out n aboot, what do people think if it? I hear it feels a lot like Chrome, with plenty of real estate and such. I'm loving FF4, and I still use Chrome on my netbook.

    I give IE9 a "meh".

    It's better than the previous incarnations (if it was worse, oh my word), but it's still not better than Chrome.

    And neither is FF4, which is basically a slow Chrome rip off. Yay

    I don't like it. I upgraded at work and refuse to do it to my home computers.

    In the process of updating PCS to Windows 7 at work and installing IE9 on them too.

    I feel it's a lot better than previous versions of IE. Not yet perfect, but better.

    I prefer IE8 over IE9. My main complaints are 1) they moved everything AGAIN and 2)I like having my tabs UNDER the address bar because I have a tendancy to open multiple tabs and that gives me more room for the tab titles.

    I love my tabs at the top, but it kinda hinders at Win7 fun features like dragging the window around. Gotta find the sweet spot.
