    Is anyone feeling the love for IE 9 for Windows 7?

    Or is this another thing that will begin slowing my machine down with little benefit at this time?

    Side note: It's no fun inviting any & every update, we're talking HD memory. (Example: Powerpoint update. Great, except I don't use powerpoint on my laptop. Arrrgh!)

    You can easily disable which windows components to update. If you're THAT low on harddrive space though (enough to worry about windows updates), you should likely look into adding storage to your computer...
    IE9 is a great step up for IE in general. You'll have to use it yourself and see if you like it.

    With my 500 GB, it's more about what I want on it, than limited space.

    Although, the percent of memory in use will begin to slow things down, eventually. :meh:

    I don't mind IE9, but I prefer SRWare Iron.

    Like Ray said, just decline and then hide the updates you don't want. Or better yet, uninstall the apps you don't use. In your case, start with PPT. :)

    I've heard it's better but between Firefox and Chrome I have little motivation to try it.

  6. It is the only browser at work, it is decent, but I still like Firefox better.


  7. This. Until a browser comes out and thoroughly knocks me off my feet I'm solidly in the Firefox camp. Chrome may dethrone it after a few more releases.....for me it's still too buggy/crashy.

    I've got IE9. I always try their new releases for a little bit, to see if they're worth it, but it's still pretty much crappy. I'm thoroughly in the Iron camp, in fact if it weren't to download flash movies (Read: porn) from the internet, I wouldn't even have Firefox.

    I never care bout IE, as long as it's there no matter what version was installed automatically when installing Windows.
    Never think of upgrade it either.

    Firefox (and Google...or even Safari) is/are my choice.
