I think it's a good thing that IE9 won't support XP. Trying to provide endless backwards compatibility has always hindered innovation, not advanced it. If Microsoft kept on catering to the XP crowd, it would take forever for us to properly move on to 64-bit architecture.
Thank you very much for this perspective, XP kept Microsoft afloat during the Vista years, but it is now a disposable OS, now that Windows 7 is here. By keeping XP around forever, we'll never get past the "should I go for 64 bit, or stick with the 32 bit that has served me well for 10+ years?" 64 bit is what's on the shelves, it's no longer the future, and it's time for us all to move forward. We can't fully benefit from 64 bit technology by hanging in the past. This is not saying to cut off service to those who cannot upgrade at this time, but Microsoft cannot continue to pour cash into a slowly dying OS and fully support research & development. Support XP SP3 with vital security updates, and leave it to the user to protect their system. A good AV with a malware scanner will do. Win 2K, XP SP2 and Vista (w/no SP) will be dropped this year. Those users can hang around for a while on their own by applying those same practices. For the rest of us, it's time for us to march forward, and don't look back. There's no promise that the road forward will be a piece of cake, but risk is a vital part of success.

This morning, in my weekly email from Microsoft, I saw the chance to try out IE9. In fact, that's what I'm using now, however, it's unsupported at this time. It's called "Windows IE Platform Preview 1.97745.6019". That's what shows at the top of the screen when using it. The page is rather plain, and there are only four options at the top of the page, " Page, Debug, Report Issue, Help". There's no print options. Finally, Windows is moving forward with a new browser, and hopefully it will be a good one. There's yet to be a place for favorites. Being that I like to try new products, I'll give this one a whirl. Hopefully, some of you received the same email with the offer, I get almost every Microsoft newsletter available, and they're coming out with new products all of the time. But one thing with this browser, you don't yet have the option to select a home page, and you must type in to your home page, so that you can browse further. But so far, no ads! That's an improvement in itself. And at the present time, it's twice as fast as IE8 or FF

I would try it if there is a back & forward button, address bar, search option, and tabs. Thats pretty much all I need. :)

Ohh and don't forget the stop and refresh buttons, I need them at times.

Hello everyone,wow this IE9 browser is so fast I like it,WHEN I downloaded it a certificate was FLASHED UP so i went into Credential Manager in control panel then clicked on Certificate-based Credentials & took a look at UNTRUSTED CERTIFICATES,to my shocked amazement being I assumed SOMETHING WAS VERY WRONG seeing activity after I go OFFLINE.

WOW to my amazement there were two certificates BOTH FRAUDULENT NOT MICROSOFT & VERISIGN ALSO they were giving FULL ADMIN RIGHTS TO MANY security related Issues which make anyone feel totally USELESS ABOUT KEPING THIS OFF WIN7 does anyone else have these two certificates in their credential certificate based Manager:
(1)microsoft corporation Verisign Commercial Software CA Expire 01/02/2002 FRAUDULENT NOW SET TO NONE(DISABLED)from enabled it WAS SET TO BE USED BY ADMIN AFTER 5PM (i go offline at 5pm daily)
(2)microsoft corporation Verisign Commercial Software CA Expire 31/1/2002 NOW SET TO NONE DISABLED this also had FULL ADMIN RIGHTS AND A KEEP ALIVE INTERNET & SETUP TO USE THE LOOPBACK 127.0.0.1\255.255.) CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN HOW THEY ARE INSTALLED BECAUSE I DONT SEE ANY INFO REGARDING THESE and MY FRIEND had the SAME EXACT TWO ON HIS PC WHICH WORRIED ME AS WE BOTH HAD THE NEW COMPUTERS SETUP AT SAME LOCATION & WE HAVE BOTH BEEN COMPROMISED SINCE 12/03/2010
Any help would REALLY BE APPRECIATED
respectfully
