Are there any issues downgrading IE?

I've got a computer with IE9 and because of issues I've run into, I'm considering downgrading to IE8 or even IE7. Is there a preferred version?: Which is the most stable? Will this cause me trouble?

Hi,

 

Mostly IE is not competible browser, It always showing some problems, I will suggest you use Google Chrome  or Firefox.

I suggest giving Google Chrome a shot and see how you like it. I gave up on IE ages ago. I don't miss it at all. Unless you are stuck using it for one reason or another, you might want to bypass it and try Chrome. If that doesn't work for you then consider Opera or Firefox.

You can download Chrome here:

Downgrading IE is usually a hassle. Here's some info from Microsoft on that.

Generally speaking, you're best running either the current version or one version back. I've seen some websites that don't work with 9, but when Microsoft was forcing version 7 on people, it broke a lot of banking and corporate sites that were based on 6. But 6 is probably the most stable version, which is what's causing Microsoft so much grief because they want people to upgade to a newer version.
