How do Realtors feel about Internet Explorer as IE9 launches?

Today, the highly anticipated Internet Explorer 9 officially launches out of beta and into the public. Some web users are incapable of being converted (like most web designers, app developers and the like) while many in the real estate industry (most outside of the blogging arena) have stuck with IE over the years.

Microsoft has high hopes for IE9 and even the tech world is saying that performance is much better, the HTML5 capabilities are great and the user interface is highly upgraded, but is it enough?

Most MLS systems still rely solely on Internet Explorer and are not yet cross-browser compatible, so perhaps the IE9 release is the update the real estate world needs in order to not have to open IE for the MLS and Chrome for everything else?

Download Internet Explorer 9 here to check it out.

We’d love to learn about your browser use and we will publish the poll results in short order.

    Can’t IE just go away now? Please?

    First update ever I have not gotten. I’ve been on Chrome for a while now.

    Maybe your next article should be titled, “How do Realtors feel about their MLS systems being so stodgy and not working in any other browser?” Just saying… 😉
