    "Piece of ****...why try Microsoft?"

    December 31, 2012  |   By harleyy2

    Version: Internet Explorer 9

    Pros

    NONE AT ALL!

    Cons

    DOESN'T WORK AT ALL

    Summary

    The only reason why I had to use this ****** browser was because my new computer had Internet Explorer on it and I always download Google Chrome immediately. This time though I had to take a different route because Internet Explorer 10 wouldn't let me download anything. It simply didn't work. I had to use my other computer's hard drive to click on the file which took extra time. Microsoft - one huge question...why the hell do you even try? Each time you try changing something you make it much worse than before.

    "You cannot turn off ClearType"

    November 17, 2012  |   By fred_66f

    Version: Internet Explorer 9

    Pros

    Works fine for me in general.

    Cons

    ClearType is a deal breaker. It makes all text look blurry. I cannot believe there is not an option to turn it off.
    The option to open all favorites in a folder as a tab group is gone unless you turn on the Favorites Center.

    Summary

    I have been using IE for almost 20 years, but I cannot stand ClearType. I also do not like leaving the Favorites Center on so that I can easily open all sites in a folder as a tab group. It is time for me to switch browsers.

    "I didn't liked it."

    November 16, 2012  |   By musiczlife

    Version: Internet Explorer 9

    Pros

    10 characters minimum really sucks

    Cons

    10 characters minimum really sucks

    Summary

    I don't want pros nor I want cons. I'm just going to use it because I'm nostalgic about that google toolbar which I've used with IE6. Back in late 2008 when I had my first "own" internet in my home I loved Google Toolbar but missing it from a long time.

    Updated on Nov 16, 2012

    I've installed it now. The only thing I didn't liked is that it scrolls very slow! Overall it's okay as a side browser when you want to browse quickly and you don't want to weight for your own browser loaded with too many extensions to open.

    "Yes, as you see above, IE9 is spectacularly...bad."

    September 15, 2012  |   By Domovoi_Butler

    Version: Internet Explorer 9

    Pros

    Pros? IE9 is your guaranteeing browser for professional tortoise racers. You will certainly like it. With an excellent boot up speed of 2 minutes, and page load up (with ads) of 10 seconds, this browser will blow you away!

    Cons

    For people like Usain Bolt, this browser is slower than a rabbit! Its supreme security blasts you away with extreme slowness.

    Summary

    Terminate with extreme prejudice!

    "The WORST !!!"

    September 3, 2012  |   By bmallek540

    Version: Internet Explorer 9

    Pros

    Every once and a while it works

    Cons

    You name it. Freezing, hang-ups, error messages. ETC.

    Summary

    I am using the most recent updates and still have the same problems. When will MS get some competent people that can make IE a viable product.
