    I downloaded it. And my first impression is it is better than FF, much better. And I do not say that lightly as I'm not a fan of MS.

    That's good news. FF has been giving me fits for weeks.

    I find it a lot quicker than FF and they have seemed to of corrected the display problems with beta on my sites. This is good.
    Thumbs UP!

    I have been running the FF beta for the HTML5 capability. I haven't been impressed. Sometimes I think the beta is going backwards. Then again, it is beta software.

    Too bad beta software isn't all up to the xenforo standards!

    hmm...I wonder if IE 9 is nothing more than Google Chrome with an IE interface...just like Bing search and Google search :D

    If MS had made IE9 compatible with WinXP we could all have had a party. Unfortunately they didn't, so we will have to deal with IErubbishVersion for years to come.

    FAIL Microsoft, fail.

    hmmm this does look more like Chrome than IE. And the lack of toolbars is not good.

    I only get the file/edit/view/favorites toolbar by hitting F10. How do I put it up there permanently?

    View -> Toolbars

    not something i can download or use, but this fad of no tool/menu/status bars is something i am getting very tired of. i really dont need that extra 2cm of vertical screen so badly that the user experience has to go down the ****ter

    I have no View -> Toolbars. That's what I'm saying.

    I found it by accident, lol.
    I'm not impressed by this at all. But it is alot faster than Firefox.

    I won't be able to use it I'm still on xp. Unless there's an XP version? Which I doubt.

    There's not. I didn't find a Windows 7 version either, only Vista. Good that I still have Vista on this computer.
    You're not missing anything. I'm not liking it much. On my JRT site, when I type in the editor box it expands height-wise with every letter I type. :eek:
