If you go through the Acid3 Test for browsers, IE 9 scores 95/100 which is better than IE 8. But when you compare it with Firefox, Opera and Chrome, IE9 still lags behind. The latest versions of Firefox scores 97, Opera and Chrome score 100 :) I would still advise you for Firefox or Chrome for ad blocking reasons.
