Internet Explorer 9 RC Now Available To Download

The Internet Explorer 9 beta pleasantly surprised us with Microsoft's renewed competitiveness in the web browser wars, and the pinnable, hardware-accelerated experience is getting even better today -- you can download the IE9 release candidate right now, which streamlines and beautifies the tabbed browsing layout considerably, adds those previously promised, fully customizable tracking protection lists for privacy and freely toggled ActiveX filters, as well as an updated Javascript engine, geolocation support via HTML5, the ability to pin web apps to the taskbar, and a host of assorted speed and functionality improvements here.

I'll have to try it sooner or later because my family uses IE.

I remember Internet explorer! My dad has me using Opera, though.

the new IE really is good if you can put aside the prejudice and hate built up from their past failures. Personally I like torbutton and some other addons so I use FF most of the time.

I'll stick to my Chrome. :|

Nice - I might have to check this out - it would be nice for IE to be in the running again, bit more healthy competition for the other browsers.
