Fascinating suggestion from SB:
Most online banking website problems can be fixed with this:
IE9 Tools | Internet Options [ALT+T+O] | Advanced | Do not save encrypted pages to disk <=uncheck/disable this option
Anybody having IE9 problems with banking sites? Does it work?

If you have both IE9 and Skype 5 running on a Windows 7 PC, you may have problems with going into sleep or hibernate mode. Apparently your PC may hang for an extended period of time and then Bluescreen.
Ends up there’s a previously unreported conflict between Win7, IE 9 and Skype 5. Details on the Microsoft Answers forum.
Solution? Uninstall IE 9 and re-install IE 8, or uninstall Skype 5 and re-install Skype 4.

Microsoft is NOT pushing Internet Explorer 9 through Windows Update – yet. Full story in my InfoWorld Tech Watch blog.

Yes, I know that W3C says IE9 is the “most compatible” HTML5 browser. But there’s still a significant gap between appearance and reality.(Besides, people argue about W3C tests every time there’s a major browser update.)
See my InfoWorld Tech Watch post on the subject.

My review of IE 9 just hit Windows Secrets Newsletter.
In spite of what youÂ may have seen or heard, it isn’t all derivative. MS came up with some new features, and they aren’t bad. Take a look.

Internet Explorer has gone from about 90% market share to about 50%, in four years.
Microsoft released a “public” beta of the new version of Internet Explorer last week. Firefox 4 and Chrome 7 – both new versions – are in publicly available beta.
There are pro’s and con’s of all three. But the over-arching question is whether IE9 is good enough to regain some of its market share.
My latest Infoworld Tech Watch article takes a look at IE’s mojo.

The title of Ed Bott’s review is a bit over the top (“Microsoft re-invents the browser”? pshaw), but it’s a very solid review of a remarkable piece of software.
Personally, I’ll continue to use Firefox and Chrome. But MS is finally getting its act together.
