Are you going to try it? - No ’ already have… its a “firefox/opera wanna be”… they have looked at what the next guy already has and ran with it without the core ‘pride’ of the work…
Do you think it will be a success or a failure? - umm… Duh! it’s going to be like IE8… just with a new number… MS is going to make it in the updates so everyone using 8 will be asked to update to 9… so it will be fairly successful …
Once it is out, and you have tried it give some feedback. Thanks.
Please read answer to 1;
I never really liked microsoft’s browser… from 2 to 9…
I like open source…
It don’t have the dumbed down design or spying issue that chrome got. It (probably) won’t have the small userbase of opera (resulting in less compatible web experience). It seems like a really good browser when it comes to malware protection. It has great tools built in for webdevelopers so there is little to no need to install some third party application created by who know who that might or might not be kept up to date.

Many users would assume that wrongly because they just don’t know quite a few/ … 88) rather many things (no offense intended) that’s normal for the ordinary user(s)
Linux as a main OS - definitely! No question about it
Only those users who are unfortunate enough and are compelled to use “Little&Soft” WinDos because of the development or alike, are tied to it & should use WinDos. I am one of them
I do not not use it as my main OS. Linux - different flavours or Mac from day one to the latest in order to have fun & enjoy & windows for the developments required
Well, again 32bit & x64 versions … no advantages whatsoever when using x64 edition. That one currently is bluntly dumb piece’a’**** & slow,… but maintaining 2 editions of Java & no Flash64 (not MS OS or IE’s fault though) … & so on & so forth
I’m not using IE, but I always have the most recent versions(s) installed in order to help some users.
I feel that since they are still using ActiveX - they will be supplying “security tampons” forever
Let’s see how those ordinary users will manage “ActiveX filters” & other stuff
Hi captainsticks ,
I think that Aweir is right … meaning that sure - we have choices as you said , but unfortunately not everybody can choose because of lack of education in this area. Again - no offense, but just a fact
Many just would buy a PC with pre=installed system (say x64, which nobody currently needs) and start pressing some buttons
Some are willing to learn and that is laudable, but how many of them out there compare to 88) “just users” ? The latter category will use IE having no “Q’s” & needing no “A’s” … until infected
