Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This morning I have just been prompted to download IE9 as part of a Windows Update ... are any ARRSE members running IE9 and if so comments on its performance would be appreciated .... or should I avoid it like the plague .

    Did an online training course through it yesterday, as Firefox wouldn't run the site. Limited experience, obviously, but seemed fast enough.

  4. The recent Firefox and Chrome are both faster, sleeker and (arguably) more secure...

    Haven't used IE since version 6 or so and dont see the need to change back. I have d/loaded IE9 mainly to 'shut up' Windows Update and I will use it for the very odd site, made by people that have lived in a cave for years, that only renders properly in IE.

    But then seeing as I will be spending most of my time using Linux from now on, M/soft can kiss my hairy arse anyway...
  5. IE9 is not that good keep getting problems on some sites. The new firefox is very good though.
