it does not supports xp??????????????

Sadly no :(

If it is true that ie9 will not work on xp, then shame on microsoft!!! have they ever done that before? in the history of microsoft, have they ever made a browser that wouldn't work on all windows versions? if that is indeed the case here, isn't microsoft completely foolish to go in this direction!!! with all the great browsers being developed, why does it look like ms is deserting their biggest fan base? if they do this, then they are cutting their own throats. sooner or later, the great majority of xp users will update their machines, but will choose the browsers that they have gotten used to. if deserted by ms, they will not come back to ie9, and, eventually, will leave windows for other new operating systems altogether.

I completely agree with you, they are stupid for not supporting XP, to quote you: "they are cutting their own throats". They lost me a long time ago though when I found Firefox and never went back, lol got in trouble at school multiple times for using it. Can't stand IE...

Run Run Microsoft . you are now at the begining !

Stopped using IE, it is very slow no compatibility with other OS & software.
At present Google Chrome is the best, next is Firefox.

XP is dead and has been for a while. Get used to it.
