Must Know Fact About IE9
There are as such many things but the better way to find about is to personally experience it. The current beta version of IE 9 is for only Windows Vista and Windows 7 users. For users of IE 8 or IE 7 must note that:
- IE 9 does not support Windows XP; hence it is not available for download.
- IE 9 Beta installation will replace the preinstalled version of Internet Explorer i.e. IE8 or IE7. SO those who don’t want to get their current browser replaced must not upgrade or install the IE9 Beta.
- IE9 is available for both 32 bit (x86) and 64 bit (x64) versions.
