    Funny how the IE9 RTM is released just days after Mozzila manage to push out its Firefox 4 RC
     
  6. Why is it funny. The IE9 RC came out at least a month before Firefox's RC, and Firefox 4 is still a buggy piece of crap. The IE9 RC came out because it's ready.

    I have already said my good byes to XP and Opera, so it doesn't bother me which platform is not supported. Although XP still has large presence at workplace so for them Per's recommendation holds true. Generally this is a nice upgrade (after many years at that), except for couple of minor issues like wastage of space at the title bar.

    I've tested a few IE9 betas and I'm not crazy about IE9, I'll see if the RTM is any better. I have had quite a few sites that do not work properly. The speed is no better than any other browser. I don't like the UI. The only reason I'm using it at all is for my job.
