Today the let go the beta of IE9.Now I haven't used IE in some time… er years… but I went and took a look at the videos from the beta site Ok I was impressed, but after letting IE die a long hard death can MS bounce back with IE9? in all fairness before firing off the I hate IE stuff. maybe taking a look it with an open mind my surprise some folks.
You make it sound like all users are obligated to carefully evaluate every new version of every product that MS releases in order to fairly and accurately determine whether switching from what they are using with satisfaction today to the MS product would be a good idea. Why should we? Microsoft is not evil, but despite their size and success I'm not willing to make them the default choice for everything, and have to justify why I'm using someone else's product, and then re-evaluate and re-justify not using MS products every time they release the next big thing. IE7 and IE8 were serviceable browsers, but Firefox and Opera were there a lot sooner, and so were lots of others based on the IE core. Likewise, MS Office releases are accompanied by extravagant praise from the trade press, even though the primary improvements from Office 2000 to Office 2010, four versions later, are improved connectivity and a flashier GUI.
BTW, IE9 does not run on Windows XP. But my computers do.
Don't put words in my mouth I said nothing of the sort.what I said "what if " hey what if it's better than the Fox or Opera the question was if it is as good or better is it worth it.nor did I say you have to justify using anything. so before you let go on some read what there saying or keep in your hat.
I seriously doubt IE9 is gonna be better than Opera or Firefox or Chrome. The only good feature that IE9 boasts of is hardware acceleration, which the other mainstream browsers will all have sooner or later. Other new features in IE9 have been around for quite a while now in other browsers. Speedwise as well, if it matters at all, benchmarks show that IE9 is still by far the slowest even with its hardware acceleration compared to the latest available versions of Opera, Firefox and Chrome.
