More adventures with IE9

I’d have to say that IE 9 beta is definitely a work in progress. I previously mentioned some issues about compatibility but in the intervening period of testing I have found that stability is less than amazing. Running on a Windows 7 64 bit workstation IE9 has repeated choked when submitting forms or when being started from a url link in email. I’ve taken to using Safari as the main browser – for work that I don’t want to have to redo and Chrome for the few instances when Safari has issues – notably with Online Banking and some other secure sites.

As I mentioned speed is good – but without stability and predictability a browser will lose its shine. I’ve decided to give IE9 another week or so to show its strengths – otherwise it may fall into disuse until another beta or release candidate appears.
