    IE9 Beta is leaps ahead of competition, specially when it comes to security.

    Not until better script control comes along.

    I don't understand, they have a monolithic amount of script control options in the security settings, just click custom level and choose from things like XSS filters and IFRAME prompts.

    The IE9 is really fabulous!

    SmartScreen is quite good, especially now with the verification of reputation.

    But even in BETA, it is safe enough to shop online?

    Script control is available, not as elegant as NoScript but still. What's AFAIK still missing is something like RequestPolicy.

    Since version 8, IE also has this kind of protection natively, provided by its InPrivate Filtering feature (not to be confused with the inPrivate Browsing feature).

    Thanks! I thought it was about incognito mode only...
