Home Forums Other IE9 – Your opinion Re: IE9 – Your opinion


In my opinion IE9 is definitely a huge step in the right direction!

That being said, I don’t think I’ll be using it as my main browser anytime soon, it still feels “clunky” to me. I do like the way they are finally trying to catch up with some of the todays standards, instead of floating stagnant and requiring JavaScript hacks left and right.

Hardware acceleration is definitely looking cool, IE9 has at least pushed other browsers to move faster in that direction (Firefox 4).

Almost all my clients (thus far) use a variant of IE, except the ones I have converted to chrome :D

At least if they insist on sticking with IE, once they upgrade to IE9 I’ll have much more freedom using CSS3 everywhere.
