Hi malware fighters,

This is going to be the last chance for IE9 in the new second browser war, and it became even further embedded into the Operational System; and how fast will it be after a few patches? Re: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2361444,00.asp
What would you conclude from the attached image below with action per millisecond?

the article is from March 16 2010, based on a platform preview, not the browser (IE9 beta) ::) >>> download and install first, then comment ;)

ps: we're not malware fighters ;D >>> where can I enroll ???

Hi Logos,

It was a sublink in a very recent discussion on the new browser wars: http://webwereld.nl/de-vijf/67210/vijf-fronten-van-de-nieuwe-browseroorlog.html?utm_source=front_head&utm_medium=website&utm_campaign=ww

I haven't tried IE9 yet, allthough on Vista the computer is my wife's and she also has a say in the matter. Then I will report here later,

I guess you are laughing because you only have Vista Home Basic SP2 on a Intel Celeron 420 1.6 ghz single core  system to test with.  ;)

No, I'm laughing because IE will never die and is in no trouble even now. It's holding it's own very well. I only object to the statement that IE9 is the "last chance" for the browser.

Also, I will not try it while it's in beta.

2 different computers I assume???
if they are then you need to download the right version for the system you're updating.

There is only one download that updates both the 32-bit and 64-bit IE9.
I don't use the 64-bit IE9 as Finjan Secure Browsing does not work in it yet.

No its not 2 different computers there is 2 internet explorer 8 that came with my windows 7 64-bit computer the 32-bit ie8 and the 64-bit ie8. so do i update both or do i update ie8 64-bit. and if i do just the 64-bit what would happen to the 32-bit

Download the 64bit version, install it and it will also update the 32bit version to IE9 Beta.

the downloads aren't 32 or 64 IE9, they're meant for either Win32 or Win64, while the different setup files in once case will update IE832, and in the other case both IE8 32 and IE64.

Hey Logos !

No need to confuse him even more than he allready is. ;D

Yes the downloads are either for 32bit versions of windows only or 64bit download which will update both the 64 bit version AND the 32bit version(64bit versions of windows run both the 32bit and 64bit IE). 
When you select the download for your particular language you also need to select your windows version, in his case Windows 7 64 bit. Hope it is clear enough now for him.

Though i can't see why he just doesn't download both versions himself and just try it. Sure is faster than asking around here. I guess some folks want to be 100 percent sure before they do something, nothing wrong with that i guess.  :)

I have no problems with it - and there is only a small learning curve.  I have found it faster, and I now no longer need to use a download manager  ;D

Win7 64 bit
