    I Just Tried To Download IE9

    I used the following link:

    Internet Explorer 9: Platform Demos

    to download iepreview.msi [I wanted to see what IE9 is looking like at the moment]

    However the install failed with the error:

    Windows Internet Explorer Platform Preview does not support any operating system earlier than Windows Vista SP2.
    I should have guessed that would be the case.

    I will try again at home on my Windows7 laptop.

    Edit: Ok. Got IE9 running on Windows7 and it is faster. However not all of the menu items are enabled, nor is tabbed browsing, nor the toolbar, nor...

    So I guess it stands to reason with so much yet to be added that it would be faster. It is not much of a preview [in my opinion] as it does not really give an idea as to what IE9 will eventually look like.

    All in all: Don't bother.
