Internet Explorer 9, Faster & More Developer Friendly

A lot has happened since IE8: the downfall of IE6 and 7; the emergence of Chrome; and the maturity of Firefox. Internet Explorer has lost a large share of the browser market in the last two years, to both Chrome and Firefox.That's a process they want to reverse.


With Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft will attempt to reclaim its long-established lead -- and looking at the details that have just been published, it might just do it:

  • Speed -- faster
  • Standards -- CSS3 support, higher Acid3 score, 55/100 currently. (Acid4 will be released soon.)
  • JavaScript -- new engine, faster, uses multiple cores! Codenamed 'Chakra'
  • Interface -- the interface looks significantly different.
