Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 9 Beta is coming

IE9Microsoft recently announced that Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 9 Beta is coming soon. Steven Sinofsky, the president of Microsoft Windows and Windows Live divisions, has announced that Microsoft will concentrate in the support to new standards like HTML5 and CSS3,and also a new development on Javascript rendering engine to load more faster.

JavaScript Performance

As we all know that IE8 has a complete slow JavaScript performance compare to its competitors. Sinofsky admits this at the presentation. But he claimed that the current build of IE9 has closed the gap compared to the latest builds of Chrome and Firefox.


IE9 is a bit look like Google Chrome atau Opera with its New Tab feature. And also IE9 provides a new integrated download manager. IE9 also has achieved the 3rd version of its platform preview so it could use not only the main processor (CPU) but also the graphic processor (GPU).
