    IE 9 Technical Preview) First of all, this is not a fully functional browser, it is a technical preview as the description clearly states. It is designed for developers.

    If you’re wanting to see if the next version of Internet Explorer has what it takes to compete again, WAIT FOR THE BETA. This is absolutely positively not intended for use as a regular browser. Reviews that state how horrible this browser are just remind me of how many people don’t read the descriptions of products before they download them.

    …Anyway, I’m most impressed with the speed enhancements–this thing still bests the latest FireFox 4.0 Beta in the Sunspider tests. If only they’d release it sooner than 2011, Firefox might have some genuine competition from IE.

  • That’s good. Hope Internet Explorer 10 will be competitive with Mozilla Firefox 5 when it will be released sometime in future
