Internet Explorer After several months and preview releases, Microsoft has finally lifted the curtain for the Windows Explorer 9 beta release. Internet Explorer 9 is Microsoft's attempt at not just catching up to the competition, but at actually surpassing them. Since enough sites will be focusing on just how many nanoseconds faster or slower the beta is compared to the competition, I'll talk a little about the new minimalist interface.

Slower in startup and initial page load than Chrome. At least that is my perception, not scientific measurement. There is a blurb when you first run IE that suggests turning off accelerators or extensions if startup is too slow.

The update magickally fixed an issue I was having with deviantArt. MSNBC working fine now... Not too bad. The tab setup is proving to be a little annoying as I do open a ton of pages as I work.

Also, I have discovered some issues (all the issues I discover I report) which seem to have to do with http timeouts and perhaps CSS... not sure yet. Pages that load fine first time every time in Chrome either cause a webserver did not respond error or actually crash my port in the tab, but it automatically resets/restarts (well it asks me if I want to).

Nothing critical. I am using IE as much as possible, reverting to Chrome as I need to.
