Are you looking to replace your browser on your personal computer or for some sort of site wide enterprise rollout? If it is just for your personal computer I would recommend giving Opera or Chrome a try. They are both HTML5 compliant and IMO perform better on XP than Safari. If you are going to replace IE in a work environment I wouldn't recommend it as it is much harder to push internet policies on 3rd party browsers.

You cannot install IE9 on Windows XP because is not supported. You need Vista SP2 or Win7. More information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Explorer_9

I would recommend Firefox. Install the plugins you need and you are good to go.
