The reason I am asking is this:
I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit installation. It is Service Pack 1 and fully updated, except that it still has IE8 installed. I use Firefox for my normal browsing and use IE only for one website that I need to access for work. IE8, not IE9, *must* be used to access this website.
I do have XP Mode installed and am thinking of possibly upgrading my Windows 7 environment to IE9, and instead using the IE8 inside of XP Mode to access that one website for work. However, the one drawback of that is that the XP Mode IE takes about 10-12 seconds to open up as opposed to a normal, non-XP Mode window of IE.
Considering I do need to access this website everyday, sometimes multiple times a day, and also that this website is literally the *only* reason I use any version of IE at all, would there be any advantages to upgrading to IE9 in my situation?
I'd appreciate someone's opinion who is more knowledgeable on the subject than I.
