Internet Explorer Yes, yes, yes - that's what you get for releasing Internet Explorer 9 in the middle of the night, Microsoft! A post on OSNews that's late! I'm sure that'll teach you. Anywho, as you may have noticed, Microsoft is back in the browser game - Internet Explorer 9 has been released.

"Don't most people run Windows under a Virtual Machine anyway?


Oh anti-Microsoft humor.

Haven't seen that before.

You give him to much credit, Thom. It wasn't even remotely humorous.

Wasn't being humorous, rather curious. Seriously... who cares about IE?

Most people who would care about these features have long left IE for alternatives and have seen the light.

I would guess that most people still using IE do so not because of a conscious decision to use it, but because they don't know any better.

Missing the point.

The most used browser in the World finally had decent standards support, decent interface and fast JS performance.

Troll somewhere else.

You really think that most people run windows in a virtual machine? Really? I mean really, really? As in you think that a majority of windows users run it inside a virtual machine on top of a different operating system? Like, you think the first thing Gradmpa Joe ,Suzie Q user, or Mr enterprise MSCE Carl Khaki do when they get a box is wipe the existing Windows Installation, install Ubuntu/Hackintosh/OpenBSD/GNU and then install the Windows on a virtual machine? Its so outlandishly, obviously not true you must have been making a joke. The only alternative is that you actually believe that was the case, which is just too scary to really even consider.

I use IE, because there is no need to add more bloatware to my system by installing other browsers. Ever since tab browsing, there hasn't been a single feature from Firefox, Chrome or Safari that I really had to have. I also use IE, because I don't care about not being considered cool for not bashing Microsoft everytime, everywhere.

As for XP, well Vista sucked (still does) but 7 doesn't. It's time to upgrade. I can understand a Vista user not wanting to upgrade to Win7, as it is basically paying Microsoft extra for fixing bugs Vista shouldn't have had in the first place. But staying on a nine year old OS?!?!? Why don't we go back to Windows 2000 or Windows 98 then?
