    Very happy with IE 9 at the moment, i avoided IE 8 like the plague only using it when needed (Premium functionality with OWA). But as i go on, i find i am using IE9 more and more.

    You mean you could actually resist the super-cool accelerators?!

    I ran it for a few days, and liked it. Unfortunately, until they support some of the add ins or compare-able ones that I have become accustomed to in Firefox (mouse gestures, hyperwords, etc), I won't make the transition. At first, I loved the way web pages seemed to spring out. Then I realized that the same can be accomplished with the zoom feature in FF, and that it seems to be smart enough to remember your settings for a given page.

    So for me, until they start supporting some of my plugins, cannot make the switch. As far as IE goes, I liked it much more than 7 or 8.

    Yeah, it would take a lot to get me off of Opera at this point. I was hoping FF4 would be good, but most of what i've read, it's still got issues. I like IE9 as a 2nd browser. It's better than IE8 cosmetically and it's a bit speedier.
