      There are drawbacks to IE9.

      I loved the search box in IE8 in the top left corner. This I use frequently, and have found it very handy when searching for something to be able to search the same text in a variety of search engines.

      With IE9 you type the search criteria in the address bar. This really does upset me at times as IE9 like to auto complete address lines when it shouldn't.

      I know auto-complete can be disabled, but at the same time I use it a fair bit.

      Also every time I visit the Sky website, I get a message that IE9 isn't up to date. Strange really, since I've installed all the latest updates from M$.

      I tried the beta of IE9 but went back. My main gripe was the favourites didn't have the blue arrow option to open in a new tab. Shame really as i usually like the new versions.

      I've tried firefox and safari and don't really like them.

      and I rolled back FF 4 as it was a clone of chrome.

      So now I use IE8 and FF3 and hope that the next versions come quickly as I don't like any of the other programs out there.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      I knew there was something else I didnt like and that was it, backwards step imho.
