The Microsoft Internet Explorer team released a Beta version of Internet Explorer 9 ( Check it out!

However, before you do. Please install Update Rollup 13! The CRM SE team has been doing verification tests with Internet Explorer 9 and has added changes to Update Rollup 13 to resolve some compatibility issues.

High impact issues resolved in Update Rollup 13:

  • Creating any row data (e.g. create account, contact, etc) throws a Jscript error.
  • Some radio button selections (e.g. Export to Excel -> Use this type of worksheet) do not allow selection of any of the non-default options.

Have we fixed all the issues? No. IE 9 is a Beta product and we are continuing our compatibility testing. The CRM SE Team plans to release additional IE 9 related fixes in the next several Update Rollups. The CRM SE team will work hard to ensure full compatibility by the time Internet Explorer releases to manufacturing.

Please see the Update Rollup 13 KB for more info on the changes made.
