IE9...I'm Impressed!

IE9...I'm Impressed!

I've been trying IE9 today...I'm impressed! Seems very fast, just as fast as Chrome (version 18.0.1025.162). Very clean UI.

Learned one thing...64-bit version of IE9 is not any better than 32-bit, and in fact is slower! 64-bit uses an older version of Javascript. See this article for more info:

Windows 7 is bundled with both 32-bit and 64-bit IE9. The one I want to pin to my Taskbar is the 32-bit version, found in this location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer

The 64-bit version, the slower of the two, is in this location:

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer

Both files have the same filename:


To determine the version you're running, click on the settings icon (image of sprocket) and select About Internet Explorer. The 64-bit version will follow the version number with "64-bit Edition".

The 32-bit version will just have the version number:

If you find that your desktop icon is linked to the 64-bit version, delete it and create another that links to the 32-bit version.
