Test Drive IE9 With The Preview Release

Microsoft has announced the “Preview Release” of Internet Explorer 9 which seems to be a milestone for the IE family considering that it now actually seems to realistically get closer to the standards everybody else uses. Unsurprisingly IE9 has a new JavaScript engine which performs much better than IE8s. It also, unsurprisingly, supports HTML5, CSS3 & SVG ‘almost completely.’

The website includes speed, HTML5 and graphical demos alongside comparisons to the features on other browsers.

This new release requires Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7. A good thing as XP is not included. A bad thing because XP is like something from a horror film and will take a long, long, long time to die.
