Internet Explorer 9

Microsoft’s new iteration of browser is on the horizon, while the beta embraces HTML 5, it has marginal speed gains(up to 9 times) while rendering pages.

In the very first report of browsers’ scalability compared to IE7 in Vista SP2, the IE9 tech preview in Windows 7 scored a 6.57 compared to IE8’s score of 1.13. That means, we believe IE9’s new “Chakra” interpreter offers 581.4 percent greater efficiency than IE8 at speeding up when workloads increase.

While not just anyone can have access to the test build, Microsoft is seeking to engage web developers to test out the core functionality. Microsoft plans to release a new build every 8 weeks.

Ill try to keep everyone in the loop as development progresses.
