Internet Explorer 9

There is a preview version of the new Internet Explorer available.
When the final release of IE9 will be is unknown. Maybe the end of this year?

I would trust it only on a virtual partition with VMWare or Sandboxie or even a test computer.

I hope this new version has some advantages to it. Surprising how many people still loaded IE when installing Windows 7 although they were given a choice. Downloading material with IE is easier than the other browsers in my opinion.

Ie is still the most popular browser for desktop/notebook computers. I tested the IE9 version on a test machine. The MS guy's still need to do a lot of work, lets put it that way.

Looks like we have a wiser bunch of computer users than the general public.

Could also mean we suck at making the site IE compatible. ;-)
But I doubt it.

RGBStock.com works fine in IE8 and in IE6 it is bad. IE7 is something in between.
