Microsoft Reveals IE9 Beta With HTML5 Apps

Microsoft introduced their latest version of Internet Explorer 9. HTML5 and standard compliance were at the top on the IE Team’s priority list. According to Fast Company’s article one of the new features coming with IE9 is websites running as HTML5 apps. For example, the Ebay website will be running as an application with its own icon in the taskbar. One can pin these “apps” to the taskbar in Windows 7 to launch and browse rather than starting IE9 and visiting the website. Microsoft has lined up several content providers like CNN, Amazon, IMDB as launch partners who’ll be introducing their HTML5 IE9 apps. Redbull will be launching their own social media platform.
