A few days ago Microsoft released the Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate to the public. Now I’ve been using IE9 since the first preview went up a few months ago, and I really like it. It didn’t totally replace Firefox for me, but that was because it was too slow.
The IE9 RC blows Firefox out of the water as far as speed goes on my Win7 netbook. Complete and total domination. The ONLY reason it hasn’t replaced Firefox at this point is the fact that it doesn’t work with WordPress. For some reason, it is impossible to write a new post on WordPress in IE9. Even in compatibility mode!
I’m not sure if this is a change that needs to be made in IE9 or in WordPress, but hopefully something gives in the near future. I’d also like for IE9 to give me the option of saving tabs on exit, but I won’t hold my breath.
