IE9 for Windows 7

March 15, 2011

Direct Download Links for Standalone IE9:

When you install 64-bit version, 32-bit version will also be installed in your Computer automatically. Running IE9 32bit on 64-bit Windows 7, just place a shortcut for Internet Explorer icon on start menu in Windows 7 (IE9 32-bit executable is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe)

32bit IE9 contains JIT (Just In Time) compiler which converts script into machine code before running it.

64-bit IE9 doesn’t contains JIT compiler that’s why 32bit version runs 4 times faster than 64-bit IE.
