Well I ran both IE9 and Chrome with 10 sites and compared each and I found fonts looked exactly the same in both IE9 and Chrome.

Yeah, this site looks weird with IE9, IMHO. Some of the fonts are blurry.

I haven't used IE in years, I was a huge FF fan for many years before I went to chrome.

So is there a adblocker for IE?

I think IE9 might be faster than Chrome 10. The font rendering is different because it uses the GPU, which is kinda sweet.

I have always used IE, for me it has worked best on all the websites I use a lot. I have just installed IE 9 and it seems good so far, less clutter. Its supposed to be faster than IE 8 but I don't notice any difference.

Nope. I'm just going to wait until the official version of 64 bit Flash comes out.

I gave it a go and it works really well. Can you set 64 bit as default. Windows says I can't. Only 32bit.

I've had a major shift in the way fonts look on the site going from Firefox 3.6 to 4 RC. I'll have to compare to IE 9 the next time I reboot my system.

One change that is very noticeable is my sig. With IE8 it looked to be bold, now in IE9 it isn't bold at all. It almost makes me feel ashamed at the lack of boldness.
At least my pink hat still looks just as nice with IE9.
