One of the more interesting trends these days is the number of Chrome and Firefox enthusiasts who have “added” Internet Explorer 9 into their browsing mix. While still using Chrome or Firefox for their more general browsing, these users are pinning a few of the key sites they visit every day - like Facebook and Pandora - with IE9 simply to get a more “app” like experience. Their Windows 7 taskbar often looks like this:
It’s happening so often now that we decided to put up a small Tumblr to help others see how IE9 is fueling IE’s comeback, poke a little fun at ourselves, and encourage those that haven’t checked us out recently to “add” an IE9 pinned site to their Windows 7 taskbar. You can check out the site for yourself at www.browseryoulovedtohate.com.
Internet Explorer 9 in so many ways has been a turning point. We’ve been both humbled by its uptake on Windows 7 and by the response we’re hearing from our customers. And while there have been a number of pretty funny things said about IE’s past, it’s great to see those same enthusiasts bringing IE9 back into their browsing mix.
In fact, using multiple browsers is pretty much the norm for web enthusiasts today. The neat thing is with IE9’s pinning capability and clean site-centric UI, it’s the perfect complement to whatever browser you use for daily tasks, letting your favorite sites be front and center with one-click access.
Come learn more about the browser you loved to hate and how it has changed since you last used it. See what others are saying about the IE9 comeback. You don’t need to ditch your current browser, but there are probably a few sites you go to each day like Facebook that you can pin with IE9 and see what you think. You might just like what you find. There are a lot of reasons why IE9 is a great browser on Windows 7. Think about adding it to your browser mix today.

Hahah, that video is fun! Currently using IE10 on Windows 8, it is almost perfect (some graphical glitches here and there, but that may be a driver issue).
Am much looking forward to IE comeback. Every people should use on their pc.
I'm a web developer and I greatly disagree, while IE9 greatly improved its still tricky a hard to develop browser.
Haha, awesome! Great to have Microsoft caring about good ol' IE again :)
