Microsoft has made the Release Candidate version of Internet Explorer 9 available for public download. This more or less the version which is closer to the final version of IE9 which is due very soon. There are many enhancements in Internet Explorer 9 out of which two of them stand out, the speed enhancements and privacy. IE9 boasts about the high speed as the key enhancement for which it depends on the HTML 5 technology; another factor to be considered is the use of hardware acceleration for rendering text, images and videos. In fact, the browsing experience with IE 9 is far better than IE8.
Another improvement over the previous versions is the speed of installation of Internet Explorer 9. It was amazing to see the way the software is downloaded and installed in a short span of time. I would say, faster than Chrome, which I considered as the fastest.
Talk about privacy, You have better control on the advertisements ad tracking of the advertisers. For example, you would only see content from the source and not 3rd party plug-ins such as advertisements.
The only thing which could stop you from using IE 9 is the OS version you might be running. IE 9 is not available for Windows XP and older operating systems, where XP is still a common Operating System in many of the computers.
The visual appearance is another thing of interest. The address bar and the tabs next to it is really removing the clutter and allows the user to really focus on the content
