Internet Explorer 9 is Here

Touted as being faster, more streamlined and simplified, is Internet Explorer 9 gonna make me spurn Firefox?

Ah.  Not so quick.  Just went to download for Windows 7 x64.  Downloaded.  Ran the install.

“Internet Explorer 9 – Downloading required updates…”

“Internet Explorer needs an update before installing……go online and install the required update, then return to the Internet Explorer installation page and run setup again.”


I click the ‘Get Update’ button.  The usual, helpful (?) Microsoft page full of stuff I don’t want to know, with the Windows 7 update buried somewhere down the page.

I click the ‘Download the x64 package now’ link.

“We can’t find that page

Make sure the web address is correct, or try using a different link to get to the page you want.”

Thank you so much Microsoft.

Seamless, end to end, joined up thinking….

Back to FF.
