    Default Cool Demo Site

    I went to this FF 4rc demo site and it told me i needed my video driver updated (laptop is 5 days old?)

    Pretty cool stuff after I updated my driver.

    Looks like a lot of bugs have been fixed and almost all my favorite add-ons work. I like it very much so far. I am comparing it to IE9 RC.

    FYI. I Googled and found that Intel has a very nice driver scanner.

    you need a NEWER driver for "Hardware acceleration".

    " Full Hardware Acceleration
    Experience super-fast graphics acceleration with Direct2D and Direct3D on Windows, XRender on Linux and OpenGL on Mac, now enabled by default, on all supported hardware."

    my laptop is only a few weeks old, but it is was manufactured Q1 2010, so Intel had several newer versions of the graphics driver available for download yesterday....

    After one week I must say I think IE9 RTM is faster than Firefox 4.0 RC, on my setup at least. This through no scientific measurements just general but heavy use during the day. My work keeps me online all day doing various tasks so what I did was use FF 4 one day then IE9 the next. Another observation I have made is that IE9 still has some issues rendering some pages properly but I assume that will get worked out. For instance I cannot see my contact list on my Google Apps Email account.

    I generally like the look and feel of IE9 better as well but I do miss two email watcher ad-ons I use a lot in FF.

    What is the best way to get feedback to MS on issues like this? I don't see a beta type feedback button or anything.
