Internet Explorer 9 released in early 2011 exclusively for Windows Vista. Microsoft at that time continued to develop its own Internet browser, not quite successfully competing with analogues from other developers. Many users preferred other browsers, believing that they were faster and safer. For the most part, this is true. But IE9 had its own merits, the program improved markedly relative to the eighth version.
The first difference that immediately catches your eye is the interface. The appearance of the program is greatly simplified when compared with IE8. Elements of interaction are ordered in accordance with logic, their location has become more understandable on an intuitive level.

From the address bar you can immediately display the top search issue and go directly to the site from the list. A standard method is also available in which the entire results page is loaded. The user can configure IE so that the program will independently supplement the search query. In this case, a predictive input system will work.

One browser window can accommodate a dozen tabs. In this case, you can open an additional one at any time. This is a convenient function that allows you to split and organize the information that the user is currently viewing. IE is present notification panel. There are displayed messages about the status of the browser. For example, a notice of the end of the file download or the presence of malicious code in it. Previously, the information block was uncomfortable. The work of the Internet browser was interrupted until the user confirms any information. Now alerts come in unobtrusive mode, do not interfere with the work of a person on the Web.

There will be no way to get an online Explorer 9 for Windows XP. The only option is to upgrade the system to later versions.
