Well, I installed IE9 today and, so far, it's working fine. Websites to which I am a frequent visitor load faster than they did in the past.
I have always kept Google as my browser home page so imagine my surprise when I found (for the first time) an ad in the upper right hand corner that says "Install Google Chrome." The ad has an X to close it but the ad comes back every time I reopen the browser.
Excuse me if this has been discussed here before.
I got annoyed, of course, and googled the topic and found the following site:
Which revealed that complaints about this have been around for 2 1/2 years without resolution.
I tried some of the work arounds suggested there and none of them worked for me.
So, today I announce to the world: KMA GOOGLE. You are gone.
My browser home page is BING and it doesn't nag me.
