Membee is Ready for the Speedy & Sleek IE9

You may remember that we previewed Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE9) here in the Latest Buzz in a post last September. In general, we liked what we saw back then and looked forward to IE9’s release. With the official release of IE9 March 14th, we’ve been busy testing Membee in the official release version.
The good news is that since last September, Microsoft has polished IE9 even further and we are pleased to announce that Membee is fully compatible with IE9. We are suggesting that an upgrade to IE9 and its substantial performance enhancements will improve the ability for your staff to use Membee more effectively. As a result, you are free to upgrade to IE9 whenever it fits the needs of your organization.
There are a couple of things that you should keep in mind before upgrading your PCs to IE9:
- IE9 requires Windows Vista or Windows 7. If you PCs are running Windows XP then IE8 is the best browser. Currently 37% of Membee users are using Windows Vista or 7.
- Confirm that other web-based applications used in your organization are ready for IE9. While Membee is ready, other sites and online applications may not be. Since IE9 is aggressively standards compliant, previously used “tricks” in a site’s code may no longer work so some changes may be required by the site’s developers.
- Upgrade a single PC as a test. For most Windows Vista and Windows 7 users, IE9 is available as an upgrade through Windows Update (Start > All Programs > Windows Update > Important Updates) making it easy to upgrade a single machine.
The bottom line is that IE9 is fundamentally better and hence it provides a faster and more secure environment for Membee. We’re using it and like it so we think you should give it some serious consideration.
If you are looking to do a little research before upgrading, Microsoft’s Official Internet Explorer 9 website is a good place to start and you may also want to check out some interesting user feedback and sample sites.
