"Why?Just,why?"

June 22, 2014  |  By mikoyangurevich15

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 9

Pros

Can`t even fathom what would be even vaguely positive about this.

Cons

Has more cons than the Florida State Penitentiary!

Summary

I wish I could give this thing "no stars" I have jokingly have labeled the shortcut as "Malware Catcher".Not far from the truth.

"One star is a gift.... and only because it's Christmas!"

December 19, 2013  |  By wyzwyk

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 9

Pros

There is really not much about this browser that appeals to me other than the fact it's fast to open and it's quick at rendering pages.

Cons

Compared to Firefox this browser seems totally devoid of features! I think IE remains popular with those users who are either totally ignorant there are better choices, those that are pathetically lazy, those paralyzed with fear to make a change, the apathetic who will never try anything new, and the brain dead who couldn't do anything new even if they wanted to. Those folks who are "with it" don't use this browser.

Summary

I am a Linux user and unless I set up and use a virtual box. I don't have the option to use Internet Explorer. That's no loss! The only time I play around with IE is when I visit one of the few friends I have who still use it, and there aren't many who do. On my system I have Firefox loaded with over 60 extensions. They provide me with all sorts of useful features and functions. When I use IE it feels primitive by comparison, like I've been transported back in time..... a time of stone knives and bearskins!

"Ihave windows7 64 bit andIE9. I and Iam relativelyhapp"

June 29, 2013  |  By Bruce5150

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 9

Pros

I have very few problems with IE9 in contrast with some of the other reviewerss If there are flaws in it my Norton 360 prevents it Twice I upgraded to IE10 and twice I camehome to #9 It does what I want it to do! 'Nuff said

Cons

For a while It seemed to crash frequently. Some Registry tweaks and it what I call closest thing to perfect as possible. Unless 10 gets anb update, and works, I'm sticking with my old and RELIABLE IE9! Thank you for reading my review.

Summary

Great Browser!

"LOVE CHROME, CAUSE IE-10 HAD HANG-UPS WORSE THAN IE-9"

May 24, 2013  |  By aloneinelcajon

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 9

Pros

Went back to IE-9 after IE-10 had constant hang-ups for playing games on Facebook. IE-9 was suggested by the website that powers Facebook games. Google Chrome the BEST browser ever, Mozilla Firefox not bad just have to keep reloading damned thing. Plus I get Google Toolbar back.....priceless.

Cons

IE-9 doesn't have as many hang-ups as IE-10, so uninstalled IE-10 & went back to IE-9. Still have problems occasionally, but NOT as many as IE-10 with my Windows 7 I upgraded to from Windows XP. Even freezes when you least expect it.
YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I HATE THAT & TICKS ME OFF TO NO END!

Summary

Very useful filling out forms, etc. But, bottom line is? I basically use it for my eBay account, yahoo, maybe MSN. When it comes to the BEST for gaming performance, hands down is Google Chrome, or Firefox for games on Facebook, for some reason IE-9 doesn't hold a candle to those TWO websites for game playing Words With Friends, Bejeweled & Solitaire Blitz, etc..

"An indispensable tool"

February 23, 2013  |  By whoda_thunkit

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 9

Pros

-very secure
-more compatible than any other browser
-lighter than most
-more privacy friendly than chrome

Cons

-not very customizable
-not very convenient

Summary

Do you fill out FAFSA forms? Do you fill out immigration forms?
Are you angry when your chrome, opera doesn't render the employment website form properly and then you open IE which you and your buddies make fun of?
Welcome to reality because the fact is that Internet Explorer is recommended by embassies when you're filling online passport forms, recommended by schools during registration?
Why? Because it works.
Internet Explorer isn't a browser you're going to use everyday for checking your email, entertainment, visiting sites like cnet but it does serve its purpose.
The activexfiltering and smartscreen filter out many malicious scripts and websites. Does it mean you can ditch your web protection AV? No but it helps.
There was a time when Google Chrome was hte undisputed king in browser security. Hackers at security conferences remarked how they could hack any browser but Chrome. Well, we hadn't experienced December 21 2012 then, Michael Jackson was still alive.
Google Chrome has been brought down to earth.
Perhaps Google software engineers have been spending too much time on quick android releases.
IE is slated by hipsters, young kids who don't do anything constructive but watch gangnam style on youtube.
people in the real world know how useful it is.

"works great"

February 16, 2013  |  By jontezz721

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 9

Pros

I had no problems with Explorer, it's simple to navigate, has a clean interface, and is reasonably fast. One of the easiest browsers on the market today and unlike Mozilla and Chrome, it doesn't eat up a ton of memory while your browsing.

Cons

I have no complaints other than the lack of add-ons, and customization is limited. Not as blazing fast as Chrome but it is more stable.

"Does not work no matter how much time I spend on it."

February 07, 2013  |  By irishspirit7

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 9

Pros

There are no PROS as it will not function!

Cons

If it does not work I suspect that is a huge CON!

Summary

I use Chrome and although would like to have the option to use IE at this point I have no idea what I could do to get it to work.

"Way way better tham previous versions"

January 23, 2013  |  By Spirallingspiral

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 9

Pros

Faster than all its previous versions.

Cons

i dont see any yet

Summary

I had to post an opinion about ie 9 here because my 1st impression about it is that its GREAT. i dont know why people whine and cry without even using that much or just because they got stuck twice or thrice prolly cos of their own dumb brain or their wooden pcs. I agree till ie 8 it was slow and frustrating but surprisingly ie 9 is a great change. People generally got a bad impression about ie which has carried on to ie 9 aswell. So im saying again in MY opinion its completely decent.

What's new in version 9 RC
  • Performance Improvements: Between the Internet Explorer 9 Beta and Internet Explorer 9 RC releases over 2,000 changes have been made to improve browser performance for real customer scenarios. Internet Explorer 9 RC starts faster, loads webpages faster, and allows you to interact with webpages faster than ever before.
  • Improved JavaScript Engine Performance: Chakra, the new JavaScript engine for Internet Explorer 9 RC, has continued to be tuned for the common patterns found across real-world websites. Chakra uses advanced techniques traditionally only found in desktop optimizing compilers. A byproduct of improving the performance of Chakra for real-world scenarios is that Internet Explorer 9 RC is now the fastest JavaScript engine on the WebKit SunSpider Benchmark.
  • Dynamic GPU Usage: Internet Explorer 9 RC now dynamically decides when to use GPU based rendering and when to use software based rendering based on the customer's GPU and installed graphics driver, which ensure the fastest possible experience for all customers by default.
  • Industry Leading Power Consumption Levels: By leveraging the GPU for graphical computation, Internet Explorer 9 RC saves significant power and leads the industry in power consumption by allowing the CPU to sleep for longer durations. Internet Explorer 9 RC is also the only browser on the Windows platform that integrates with the Windows Power Options and respects customers' power settings to conserve power and maximize battery life.
  • Improved Usability: The new features in the Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate (RC) continue to refine and improve the usability of the browser. Menu bar toggle allows you to permanently enable the menu bar with just a few clicks. Internet Explorer 9 RC also gives you even more space to let your sites shine by reducing the frame pixels by five over the beta release to see more of your favorite site's content.
  • Tabs: With the RC Build, we continue to listen to customers and have implemented the ability to place tabs on a separate row from the address bar providing you more space for all your tabs.
    We've also improved the visibility of the active tab and enabled you to close background tabs without selecting the tab by exposing the close button on hover. A single tab can also be closed using the close button on the tab, which behaves the same as the frame close button.
  • Pinned Sites: You will now be able to pin multiple home pages in a single pinned site with Internet Explorer 9 RC and open several webpages simultaneously. This will both reduce the clutter on the task bar and make browsing to your favorite sites available with a single click. Additionally, it's now possible to pin sites to your taskbar wherever it's positioned and for developers to implement drag-to-pin support right on their pages.
  • Tracking Protection Lists: Some content on websites can be used to track your activity as you browse the web. Tracking Protection allows you to limit the browser's communication with certain websites--determined by a Tracking Protection List--to help keep your information private. Anyone can create Tracking Protection Lists, and there should be many to choose from in the near future.
  • ActiveX Filtering: ActiveX is a technology that allows web developers to create interactive content on their sites, but it can also pose a security risk. Internet Explorer 9 RC allows you to block ActiveX controls for all sites, and then turn them back on for only the sites that you trust with the new ActiveX Filtering option.
  • Pinned Sites InPrivate: InPrivate browsing is now supported on pinned sites giving you more choice and increased privacy across all your browsing experiences. When you pin a site with InPrivate browsing enabled, the next time you launch the pinned site, the browsing session is automatically enabled as InPrivate.
  • CSS2D Transforms: Internet Explorer 9 RC adds support for the CSS3 2D Transforms module, which enables elements that are rendered by CSS to be transformed in two dimensional space.
  • HTML5 Semantic Tag: Internet Explorer 9 RC improves support for several HTML5 semantic tags where a semantic element is defined as one whose tag name describes its content, but which does not have any special behaviors. Elements now inherit from HTMLElement and by default the elements are now styled as specified in the HTML5 specification.
  • Geolocation: With support for geolocation, Internet Explorer 9 RC enables a web application to access the current geographical location of the PC running Internet Explorer, as specified in the Geolocation API specification. The webpage can then tailor the user experience according to location.
  • WebM Support: Internet Explorer 9 RC supports playback of H.264-encoded video using the HTML5 video tag and now WebM video as well when a VP8 coded is installed on Windows.
