Ok, after a bit more testing of IE9 PP7, it appears that you get wildly variable results depending on the hardware platform. I'll post the details later, but running on my Core2 Duo laptop, I got results that are more in keeping with what Microsoft is claiming. I guess that Microsoft has optimized for more modern processors. While this isn't unexpected, it is a bit of a disappointment. On my older hardward, GC and even Firefox are much faster than IE9. On a laptop that is only 2 years newer, the picture reverses--Strange.
