Microsoft will be releasing Internet Explorer 9 today in Austin, Texas, at 9pm US Pacific Standard Time.

While there have been 36 million downloads of the IE9 beta, some people on the MSDN blog are still encountering problems with the browser upgrade.

One blogger said, "Connect site is a simple joke, period."

Another said, "When will IE team realize that saving the session is an important feature to browsing so that I can get back what I was reading or doing when I come back to my computer (especially when using laptop). I thought IE team actually do user research surveys... I think they should see the Firefox most used features."

And in one post, a user complained, "I guess it's too late but I hope they fix the font issue that still exists in the RC."

As Computer Weekly has previously reported, some sites may not render exactly as they did in IE6/7 because of compatibility issues.
