ITBusinessEdge: Why SMBs Should Upgrade to Internet Explorer 9

Paul Mah says SMBs should upgrade their browsers to Microsoft’s new Internet Explorer 9 because, among other reasons, it’s faster, more secure, easier to manage, features a new cleaner interface and has made big improvements to the file downloader.

“Microsoft released the final version of Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) earlier this week with the proclamation that “Fast is now beautiful.” Perhaps you are on the verge of upgrading but have lingering doubts about the enhancements that IE9 offers over prior versions of the Internet Explorer (IE) browser. To help you along, I’ve compiled a list of features in IE9 that I feel make it worth taking the leap.

The Most Secure Internet Explorer Yet

While earlier versions of the IE browser are notoriously insecure, recent iterations of IE have grown by leaps and bounds on the security front. In fact, it took three separate exploits chained together to bring IE8 onto its knees at the Pwn2Own 2011 contest. Well, IE9 is Microsoft’s most secure browser yet, and Microsoft has gone on the record saying that IE9 is not vulnerable to the same exploit that broke IE8.”
