    Installed and running fine. I haven't broken it yet.
    However I do notice that the Prevx tab isn't visible.

    Thanks for the links. First install of german IE9 didn't work flawlessly. It kept stuck at 17 %. So I had to shut down and then after reboot I could uninstall IE9 which seemed to be installed fine though at the first time. Nevertheless installed it again and this time - maybe because I choose the 2nd option to not care about open files and reboot - it worked without being stuck.

    Only question I have now: How do I disable temporary internet files (no hdd cache) in IE9? I am using private mode but those files are written anyway to my SSD? WTH? - Should private mode not explicitly stop that behavior?

    it works pretty good.

    it seems a little faster than the RC.
    some web pages are broken but can be fixed by using the Compatibility View.

    if you scroll down this page you will see there is text over some images but it will display properly in Compatibility View:

    I'm a "newbie" in IE :D and i barely use it,as i use Chrome or FF as my default browser.My question is,are there some extension for IE as Flash Block and Add Block like in FF and Chrome?Cause i really like IE9 and i hate to see ads flashing on every page.

    AFAIK the Simple Adblock extension for IE 9 is no longer completely freeware.

    " Free/Pro version
    - Free version is limited to 100 adrequests
    "

    Do you think that the RAM usage has improved?

    IE9 seems to be lot faster than IE8. Added TPLs and sites loads lot faster without any ads and pop-ups like..:thumb:

    IE9 is like night and day over IE8. They really did a very good job with it.

    You can activate "Activex Filter" in security section for block flash. But i wonder are there any flash blocker addon because if you want to watch flash video on any page and deactive activex for that page you can see flash video including flash ads.

    They just need to work on getting a good add-on development platform in place. The current one is pathetic.

    That was a bright move on their part :rolleyes: Oh well, in IE, nothing ever beat a good HOST file anyway.

    Still, the new tracking protection is a lot better than the old InPrivate filtering, so an adblocking addon is not really needed.
