    Wonder why this post is included. Internet Explorer 9 is nicer and faster than the latter version. Any bugs found?

        Oh..gosh MS taking initiative to promotes its ie9 and now educating ppl to uninstall it. They are quite flexible in a way.

        • If MS do not provide a way to uninstall, then ppl might complain 🙂

    I installed both ie9 and FF4 last week. seriously FF4 much better than ie9. I find ie9 way of rendering font is so bad. Even after turning on the win7 cleartype, it still looks bad. but i’m not uninstalling ie9 because I dont use it regularly . only when i’m testing compatibility with my web design.

    i am sure that firefox 4 is much more better than IE 9, in term of speed. i don’t like IE..
