      Yea, must be a conspiracy, it can’t be because MS actually worked hard on fixing the security. It’s also a MS conspiracy that FF and Opera are not sandboxed, like IE is. And that FF did not until recently fully opt into DEP And ASLR, SEHOP and so on. Conspriacies I tell ya!

      MS is the only one pays for these kinds of studies, maybe Mozilla and google should pay for studies as well, so we can get a non-MS side. I wonder why they don’t. Probably because they know it will not show them in a positive light, if I were to apply your logic without the anti-MS bias.

      It’s clear that the anti-MS types are 99% ad homs, and 1% facts, you should try examining the study methodology and criticizing it on specific points, instead of just throwing out “MS paid so it’s lies!” generalizations.

        Easy there dude, i think he was just trying to point out that the study may not be completely reliable since it was funded by MS. But in general, IE9 feels faster and snappy compared to every other browser except chrome. Chrome still feels snappier, but it doesn’t always render some websites properly. All in all, i currently use chrome and IE9 the most. Good thing MS finally caught up with the competition.

        cause i’m the balls ๐Ÿ˜›

        No, I’m not dead, just a full time parent now, and it keeps me pretty damn busy. a 19 month old boy is a handful! especially when he’s got all the energy of his father! At least, that’s what my wife says, I’ve never met the man…

          Should’ve thought about that before you let her sleep around. If the boy was as lazy as you, maybe you could both sit in front of the computer 24/7 and first-post.
