Internet Explorer 9 (IE9): Problems With Beta?

By Updated on

The beta for Internet Explorer 9 has been available to download for a few days now. It is being promoted by Microsoft as “play in a more beautiful web”. The look of the new browser is said to be more simplistic and the address bar doubles up as the search box.

My colleague Jamie Pert has commented on how IE9 loaded up some popular websites such as Facebook pretty quick. It also seems that Microsoft has taken ideas from rival browsers, but this could be Microsoft’s best browser to date. The Beta download is only 39MB in size so doesn’t take long to download to your system.

As with all Beta downloads there will be problems, as it is not the finished product. Have you downloaded IE9? And have you spotted any problems? Tell us what you think of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 so far.
