You have to, sometimes, begrudgingly, hand it to Microsoft. They are a tenacious bunch of bastards … with no shame. Given that just last week they admitted that there is yet another MAJOR security hole in IE 6/7 you would think they would abandon IE as a lost cause and let users choose between FireFox, Chrome, Opera etc.
They are now previewing IE 9. I kid you not. IE 9 does not run on XP. You need Vista or Windows 7.
Here is Microsoft’s TEST DRIVE site for IE 9. IE 9 is not complete. It is probably ridden with security holes, like a condom with pin pricks. I don’t use IE. I have enough problems in my life without voluntarily courting disaster. But, if you are interested. I don’t recommend it. Go have a few glasses of red wine first. That will clear up your synapses. IE is a drug. A bad drug. Avoid it.
