I have downloaded IE9 and installed with no problems on windows 7 home premium 64bit.
Just one niggle-I have enabled the status bar at the bottom of IE but it does not show the green progress bars when loading web pages,both 64bit and 32bit versions.
I have googled this but the only hits I get refer to the status bar not the progress bars.
Anybody have any ideas ? Maybe Microsoft have done away with it ?

you the only other person apart from me whos complained about this.

It seems although there is the option of turning the status bar back on, it now is useless and does nothing. I noticed the same issue, the status bar also gets used by some addons like simple adblocker which is effectively useless on IE9 because of this.

Personally I think the gui changes in IE9 are a joke, its almost an enforced full screen mode.

IE9 is very fast but I felt the GUI changes made it unfunctional so I rolled back to IE8 and still mainly use firefox.

I updated yesterday and can no longer run the TBB speed test. I assume it's an issue with Java. Page can not be displayed error!

Time to roll back.

I think you have to tick the compatibility button (an icon top central I think).

Still behaves like a beta. Have rolled back to IE8.
What a disappointment.

Tried the beta months back. Hated it. Enjoyed IE8 perviously, but after changing to IE9 decided to switch completely. Tried Opera for a week. So, so. Tried Chrome and Safari for about a day each. Nothing much to see.

Now with FF. It seemes to be the best one for me now.

yeah, what has baffled me is how many people have simply accepted major GUI changes as if it is no hinderence. I have moaned about it in a few places and got shot down by 95% of people telling me to move with the times. Seems many people now days assume newer always means better.

Is there not the usual "make the UI look as much like the previous version as is feasible" option?
