    I'm an IE hater since day dot. Been using Firefox for longer than I can remember, and am a recent convert to chrome (I'm a bit of a minimalist).

    HOWEVER.

    I have been using IE9 for a while now (through beta, RC and now RTM), and I must say I am extremely impressed with it. I mostly use it for sites that use client controls unsupported in Chrome/Fx such as BES. I'm one of the biggest IEbashers around. I was the guy who went to the IE9 beta launch party to pick on the IE evangelists and was piping up "chrome does that" "firefox did that 3 years ago" etc.

    On the record: I like it.

    This is because google have officially abandoned google gears in favor of official HTML5 methods of storage.

    Right click on IE9 (up at the toolbar area) and click "show tabs on a seperate row".

    IE9 has been running great on all of our systems. Integrated it into our new Windows 7 SP1 universal image. We did make sure to upgrade our Adobe Flash job at the same time...

    I having been running it on my work laptop (Windows 7 x64) since the Final version was released, and I must say it runs well, although I have noticed that it is now running better since I have installed SP1 for windows 7 onto my laptop (I did that about a week after I installed IE9, after I had made sure I had a current backup). Prior to SP1 I noticed the tabs were buggy, and it was a little slow, but since I have installed SP1 I have had no trouble at all.

    Also forgot to mention the builtin download manager is very good. I have download several large files, and even after shutdowning the machine mid download, it resumed and the final download worked no issues. Typical Microsoft though, the inbuilt SmartScreen Filter worked out that the new Firefox 4 exe was safe, but it couldn't determine if the Windows Driver Kit ISO I had download from Microsoft was safe?!?

    I believe this is because it uses a completely separate process for each tab, like Chrome does, its for security. I believe I also read somewhere about IE using separate processes for flash objects and similar as well but I don't know if they ever implemented that though.

    I have found a problem with IE9 today. It seems to ignore the popup blocker exceptions you set in GPO.

    Dont think I will be deploying it for a bit.
