IE9 M.I.A.

Not that I'm particularly bothered, IE9 RTM is not yet added to Windows Update.

It's a fairly major change, so I suppose that Microsoft are letting the enthusiasts have first crack at this browser, and then mop up the apathetic later.

The large numbers that have flocked to download IE 9 RTM outside of Windows Update are those of us that can't wait for cutting edge. I suspect it will be added to Windows Update on the next Update Tuesday. IE 9 RTM is my default with Chrome a distant second. In fact the only site I use Chrome for right now is Windows Secrets Lounge because of an enhanced upload attachment problem I'm having there, otherwise IE 9 would be my choice for all sites.

I'm waiting for everyone else to iron out the early bugs. I am in no hurry to update IE.

I did accept the upgrade to Firefox 4, and it's going to take me a while to get used to the changed interface, I have seen no benefits yet.

As a Web Developer (ha, ha) I think I'll wait for IE20.

IE9 RTW has been released to Windows Update for those who have IE9 Beta or IE9 RC installed. No word yet on when it will be generally released but I would expect it to be soon.
