    Best IE 9 Download Location.

    Does it make a vast difference where I download the browser from? I was offered the download with Windows Update, yet other people have stated that it's best to get it from the IE Downloads site.

    Also where can I go to view the opinions of others who have IE9 installed?


    Thanks,

    Gloria

    I would not install IE 9 via the WU interface. Instead download it from here or here. (offline or IE download site)
    Window update, sadly, only offers another way in which things can go wrong. Try to get optional items separately,
    preferably as an offline install means.

    I have installed and have been using IE 9 for a couple of months now without issue. Ensure you have an imaged backup in the event something does go wrong.

    I agree that IE 9 is best done with the download rather than Windows Update. I especially like the various ways I can customize IE 9. Speed wise I believe it is on par with the best.
