    Remember it's not a full browser.

    371.4 opera 10.53

    611 ie9 ctp 2

    766 ie9 ctp 1

    Who wants a full browser anyways? I just want something that I can use on occasion and complain when it crashes or renders something in an undesirable way. If people were suddenly unable to grumble about their browser, message boards would start filling-up with other nonsense, like poop jokes.

    Yeah, but is IE9 faster than a potato?

     

    Tell the IE9 team that if they're going to do the potato test, don't point it to Channel 9... The potato will win in that case

    If I had more free time, I would recreate the the potato gun and goo filled speaker. That would be fun.

    Exactly... Browsing is Sooooooo 1990’s

    - Yes, it doesn't affect normal IE.

    - It's a developer preview. It doesn't even have a back button. Some of the demos from the preview site are fun though.
