    'Lo. Does IE 9 seem to suffer from many of the security issues that earlier manifestations of IE are plagued by? Just trying it out and it seems to look pretty nice so far.

    Probably - though with it being new, I'd say a lot of holes haven't been found yet.

    IE9 is an exceptionally good browser, and has a number of important things which put it ahead of other browsers (Hardware acceleration, for instance).
    It will be interesting to see what the final release will be like, whether they clutter it up both in the back-end and in the interface, and if it is secure.

    Seeing as they have fixed most of the standards issues, it is exceedingly fast, has GPU acceleration (which no other Windows browser has), it could be very, very competitive. Really just depends on how they finish it off.
