Here is a short but sweet one, a lot of people have been asking me, “How to check the actual download speed of downloads using Internet Explorer 9”. I myself love watching download speeds, the more numbers flying around the better, kind of like instant gratification. Anyways onto the answer, just mouse over the percentage completed and your average download speed will be shown. The Microsoft forums are all a buzz over this, and I can assure you its a safe bet that we will have more information (download speed and time remaining, to name a couple)available to us in the future revisions of Internet Explorer 9.
If you havent downloaded IE9 yet, you really should, it functions quite well. Take it for a Test Drive!
