IE9 Beta Available for Download

Many of you have seen the positive press coverage from Microsoft’s recent Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview announcements.  Today Microsoft is releasing Internet Explorer 9 Beta.

We all want to enjoy a faster more immersive web that uses the full power of your Windows PC, so Microsoft made IE9 fast with GPU-powered HTML5.  Your favorite sites will shine with a clean new UI that integrates web sites into the Windows 7 experience you already know. Because malicious and poorly written sites threaten the reliability, privacy and safety of your online experience, IE9 delivers new protections that continue our leadership in being the world’s most trusted browser.   And for developers, IE9 delivers excellent support for HTML5 and other modern standards, so the same markup works across more browsers, and the web is more interoperable.

 

IE9 is the most significant update to the browser Microsoft has produced in a decade. Digital Trends wrote that “IE9 Will Change the Web Forever”

2. Pin your favorite sites and experience their Jump Lists.  Facebook, Bing, MSN, Twitter, Discovery, and the Wall Street Journal are great places to start.

3. And finally, head over to www.beautyoftheweb.com to learn about the rest of IE9 and experience some of the early sites developers and designers have been able to build using IE9 and Windows. 

This is awesome stuff.
