    I did... It's pretty cool with the new features. I didn't have too much time to go indepth with it before it became unstable and crashed. It did this several times and then the auto recovery would kick in and start loading up several websites that I had viewed previously only to end with the usual "Send Error report to Microsoft" and "End Now"

    All in all I think it will be a great program once all the bugs are worked out. Keep in mind that not all computers are the same and results may vary.
