Default Microsoft finally signed off IE9 RTM!!!

Microsoft signed off IE9 RTM build 9.00.8112.16421.110308-0330 compiled on 8 March 2011. So where the leak?

Hmmm maybe IE9 RTM is from upcoming Windows update KB982861?

Read somewhere this was supposed to be out today... Guess not as it's not on windows update and the page hasn't been changed yet at MS.

EDIT: http://www.tomsguide.com/us/Internet...ews-10405.html

Apparently 9pm pacific time... Seems kind of silly to me to be that late in the day.

I wasn't too crazy about the UI either. I think I could get used to using search via the address bar, but I'll definitely try to get the menu bar back.

Is it good? Does it break anything (affecting the rest of the system) ?

I heard it's Windows 7 only, does this mean no Vista support?

I don't like it. Maybe I am used to Chrome, but the fonts look crappy for some reason.
