I'll stick my neck out there and say IE9's good. It's certainly more snappy than IE8 in loading and rendering pages. The interface is MUCH cleaner; I put it on my desktop and have used it for a day and when I went to my notebook right away IE8 looked dated in comparison (not that it wasn't already long in the tooth, but even more so now). So far I'm actually happy with it - only long term use will know for sure. The only thing that bugs me in a usability standpoint is the location of the favorites button.
