IE9 Beta Available for Download

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.
