After fixing my installation IE9 acheived a 3000+ score on the peacemaker browser benchmark. This is a massive improvement over IE8 (which average around 600ish. It never went above 1000).

It's new javascript engine is giving firefox a run for it's money (some could argue Chrome as well though I doubt for long). Its GPU processing is a little goofy with SLI based GPUs but so far it's the only browser to be well coded for hardware acceleration and it really shines.

Slightly improved though a major part of that comes from whether the user is an idiot or not. I can completely uninstall my AV and leave the Windows 7 defaults and use IE8 or IE9 without getting viruses.

That being said, IE9 does have a new ActiveX Filter that works the same way as NoScript does for Firefox when turned on (except this only applies to ActiveX controls, not scripts). It does come with a new Tracking Protection feature which prevents ads from collecting data from you (though Microsoft will not publish any lists for blocking, this will come from 3rd party supporters or the user him/herself).

The SmartScreen filter does notify you of programs that are seldomly downloaded and will notify you that downloaded programs may be malware if this is the case (has happened on some legit programs that many users don't use, but it does enable the user to override the warning easily).

I'm currently using Kaspersky and a test on security led to Internet Explorer 9 deleting a file with a virus before Kaspersky had a chance to detect it. Never seen that happen before.

I'm not sure on this, but it could be possible that IE's security scan feature might be backed up on Windows Defender's database or even MSE's database.

So yesterday I ran into the same problems as before with IE9 going insanely slow on every site (for some reason only Cheat Happens and Team Liquid were the only sites there were working without too many problems) so I had to uninstall it.

I got this screenshot of Task Manager attempting to make YouTube work (screenshot shows a horrible memory leak in IE9. It exceeded 1 GB of memory before ultimately crashing).

That's quite the bug Microsoft has on their hands. It was never a problem in the beta version and I think it may have to do with their attempt to automate the GPU rendering engine to disable itself (does not fully function in GPUs using SLI technology like mine does). Not too sure if that's the cause by it's my hypothesis.

Its MS trying to utilize every single bit of RAM possible, if preloading video's it will actually grab the data quickly as possible and some sites if servers are slow can't keep up and so IE9 constantly asks for the data thinking its lost connection to the server.

Ultimately it becomes bad as you have multiple threads to the one browser window.
