  1. As promised, Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 9 in its stable RTM form a year after releasing the first "platform preview" build. The browser managed to maintain the excitement among users during its several months of testing, which saw a public beta last September and the launch of the first Release Candidate in February, as it marks a clear departure from previous versions in terms of design, features, and browser-engine.

    It is still buggy, seems like rushed release
  4. I'm running IE9 final on Vista. It is fast and stable.
  5. Wonder if they fixed the memory leak from the RC...........ate up my 6GB of RAM in hours.
  6. Downloaded and installed IE9 this morning. It is blazing fast. Looks like Microsoft finally has a first class browser.
  7. I just installed IE9. The graphics rendering is fast and really incredible.

    Love the browser, but I still absolutely HATE the fact that you have to restart Windows after installing it.

    I also got 6 GB of RAM, and I didn't notice any leaks. Are you using the 32-bit version by any crazy chance?
  9. Been running IE9 almost four hours with no memory leak. Impressive all around performance for a MS browser.
