    There's not no news altogether...

     

    There's this post (http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2009/11/18/an-early-look-at-ie9-for-developers.aspx) on the IEBlog from Novemeber.

    No I'm not at the moment, just general web browsing.  So far it's ok -- not startlingly better than IE8, no big feature to keep me using FF over IE8.

     

    Tabs open quicker, but the app takes longer to start up (I tend to close apps that I'm not using to keep the taskbar uncluttered so I open and close the browser more than most).

    Actually, the thing I find most attractive about FF is not the browser itself (which I can take or leave) but an add-on I use... NoScript.

     

    Just so much more practical and usable, compared to messing about with IE's security zones.

    I'm going to take a stab in the dark and guess...MIX?

     

    I don't want you to get into trouble, so if I'm right scratch your left ear.

    Actually, I don't know. You know who Dean works for, right? Smiley

    Agreed elmer, it's the add-ons:

    WikiLook, Mouse Gestures, Flashblock, IE Tab, Adblock Plus, to name a few favs.

     

    To be fair though I was happy with IE7/8 and the IE7Pro add-on. Gave me most of my *must* have features like in-line spell check, readily available word definitions, and mouse gestures. Sadly my current work has me stuck back in IE6 Embarassed

    Same here. noscript/ad blocker makes browsing nice.
