Google Instant Won't Work Yet In IE9 Due To Trident 5

Oct 5, 2010 • 7:06 am | comments (4) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine

Some Internet Explorer 9 beta users are complaining in a Google Web Search Help thread that Google Instant doesn't work using that browser.

Google confirmed the issue in the thread, they said they are in the final phases of testing Google Instant on IE9.

Jonathan E. from Google said:

We're is in the final stages of testing Instant on IE9 and hope to be able to enable it in the coming week or so. We'll keep you posted.

What is the hold up? Well, as Jonathan explained, "a new version of the rendering engine (Trident 5) that's part of IE9." Google said they "did come across some changes that we needed to make to support it."

So hopefully Google Instant will work in IE9 within a couple weeks.

Good to know that things can work just fine on other browsers but will need special consideration on the newest version of IE. Some things never change, I guess.

It still doesn't work with the latest Microsoft products! I've got Windows 7 64 bit with IE 9. None of the links work either with left click or with right click open in new tab. It does work under Firefox, but that's not the issue! It's really frustrating. What's taking the time?

I am GLAD it doesn't work! IE9 deserves to die. It is the shittiest browser in the world.
