What’s holding you back? Here is the main download page with links to all the versions you need. While it’s downloading – here are three quick things I believe should help encourage you to try out IE9.
It’s freakin’ fast. Really – it’s just sick how fast it is!
Handy with pin’ed websites.
At first glance, I dismissed this as a cutsie feature – but now I’ve come to realize that it’s VERY handy. with over 250 top websites (and growing) lit up for pin’ed support with IE9, common ways to interact with specific sites are now a single click away. Facebook, Globe and Mail, TSN, CBC news, CTV news, redflagdeals – it’s a whole lot of what I use on the web, now in my taskbar with one click jump lists.
Security and privacy improvements.
SmartScreen technology was introduced in IE8, it’s been improved in IE9 to now include download filters as well. Malicious code or known disreputable executable are challenged with IE9’s baked in “integrated download reputation” to help users make the right choice before downloading an unknown app from the web. Both features are ON by default. On the privacy front, “Tracking Protection” helps protect users from being tracked online by 3rd party content/images/tracking bugs. Users (and administrators) can download a variety of tracking lists maintained by a variety of partners.
