Quite enjoyable to work out below we will. I would really like to regards towards endeavors you had planned for penning this valuable outstanding content. These days go here Payday Loans Thanks designed for wonderful feature.

Not in Canada

I downloaded IE9 before realizing this was US only. Having said that, flash always crashes when I am using Slacker on IE9. Back to Firefox/Chrome for me.

Slacker and IE9 promotion

How can u advertise free 3 months of premium service and when you sign up they put in fine print “its not premium service its IE premium service. If you go to your site that advertises their premium service, its different than the “IE9 Premium service” but u don’t tell me that until you go through all the hassle of downloading and take hours to get it setup then in the fine print it “IE9 premium service” I’m going to the BBB with this misleading promotion. It’s a way to get you to upgrade to IE9 and not tell u the fine print till your half way through the process

Misleading

Apparently the Premium subscription you get only works on IE9. If you try to load slacker on a different browser or mobile app after getting your free 3 month subscription you will be disappointed with a regular old basic account if you weren't already paying for an account.

Internet Explorer 9 dogged by bugs, that's why it's not taking o

The offerings look good from Microsoft, et. al., but the fact of the matter regarding Internet Explorer 9 is that there are still some bugs, and some sites that work properly in version 8, as well as Firefox or Chrome, do not work properly in one way or another.

Have worked two projects for a major web developer as a community volunteer, and both projects found bugs where links would not work, or other things would pop up that were unexpected when visiting pages associated with the two projects.

Sometimes unrelated pages would have problems too when working with them, so the thing Microsoft needs to do is fix their bugs first, then try to woo the consumer back, most are going to Firefox or Chrome anyway.
