Microsoft today announces the IE9 preview to deliver an awesome new browsing experience.
In what can be seen as a counter to the Chrome threat , the new browser focus on HTML5 works to make the new web browsing experience more like viewing apps than web pages. The combination of operating system improvements with Windows 7 and the new browser will mean that more of the whole computer will be optimised to achieve a sexier, smoother and faster web experience.
Further details on how you can get your hands on the new browser after the jump.
Coming soon, is the support for HTML5 video which is tipped as the potential flash killer for online video.
A preview is available is here with the intention to update the preview every eight weeks. If you are keen to download it, do remember it is not the full browsing experience. No back button, no phishing controls, you have been warned.
