      At least with IE9, customers will stop typing 192.168.0.1 into the search bar.
      Either chrome or firefox would do. admittedly i prefer chrome but if the customer wants firefox thats fine by me as long as they are not using IE.

      Some may say that because i have a MAC that i am biased but i always hated IE and haven't used it in years other than in work simply because i don't have another choice.

      typing in the default gateway into IE 9 always takes a customer to the adsl username and password generator from here. Which is fine but not what i am trying to get them to do when they have an issue with a wireless channel.

      What is worst is that apparently since IE9 was made for windows 7 you cannot backdate it to IE8 due to the fact that it was made for Vista.

      I don't think you'd want to roll back IE9 to an older version, it seems to be a vast improvement.

      I use Chrome Portable in work... Life is so much easier with tabs, and a browser that isn't nearly a decade old.
      BT/Openreach systems don't like it though. Nor TTM. IE8 is bearable but not many workstations have it yet. Wish they'd get the finger out.

      Re: IE9 Beta

      It is a pain in work having to use IE, if i could take in a browser on a USB and not get complained at about security it would have been done months ago.

      actually i would probably created a USB bootable hackintosh with chrome as well just to make work as good as possible

      Think this is the new items to be included in the sky answers feedback form.

      Just download and run it from the desktop, doesn't require installation.

      See some of the workstations also have an old version of firefox, but its almost as slow as ie and flash doesn't work. So pretty pointless

      Re: IE9 Beta

      It's Opera or Firefox for me. I prefer Opera but Firefox's extentions are just too useful. Plus the annoying habit of Opera's developers breaking whatever extentions that worked fine before the compulsory upgrade. Ok, it's not strictly complusory but you get so many "new version available!" notification you upgrade just to stop the damn messages! I really wish they'd simply listen to what users want rather than just imposing what they think we want.

      Re: IE9 Beta

      Chrome is probs the fastest browser. Have firefox installed as well

      the only time i use any other browser out of choice is atomic browser for the Ipad 1

      and that will only change to safari when i get the Ipad 2 due to the new nitro javascript engine
