Anyone upgrade to Internet Explorer v9 yet?

Post by Hippie459MN » Apr 10, 2011 7:55 pm

So how many people here actually use Internet Explorer and how many have updated to IE9? I am thing of updating to a new image mod on the board but like in typical Internet Explorer fashion, It cant seem to handle proper code so it cant handle the updated mod properly. We are working on a permanent fix to the mod but I would really like to implement it as its much better then the one installed now for clicking on images to enlarge them but I dont want people running the new IE9 to not have things functioning correctly. Stupid Internet Explorer.

Some great more secure alternatives to Internet Explorer:
Mozilla Firefox

Google Chrome

Back to work on making things work... :up:

I have been using google chrome for about a month now and love it. It's similar to firefox but with the 8 most visited sites on the front page.

I think Firefox v4 does that now. I have been using it for about a week or 2 now and it is major fast and much less or a resource hog then v3 was. Plus it has tons of new features and I think you can display the most visited sites as your home page or something. I havent dug to deep into it yet as its not something I would really use myself. I just have my most used sites book marks in my tool bar area nice and small and its perfect. :up:

Whats funny is the official microsoft page is not IE9 compatible so the site has to have the emulate IE8 tag in the header of the code for it to work properly. LoL FAIL once again M$. :D
