Internet Explorer 9 beta being released tomorrow, 9/15/10

As you all know, I’m a diehard IE user.  I use IE8 at home but for security purposes, use FireFox at work.

In any case, IE9 beta 1 is being released tomorrow morning via Microsoft’s “Beauty of the Web” event.

Why is IE9 so great?

  • Conforms to web standards – yes, MICROSOFT, notorious for not comforming to web specifications, is now trying to make right what they wronged many years ago
  • Hardware acceleration – this means IE9 can and will use your graphics card to offput some of the rendering for videos and pictures – and this will free up resources available for text
  • More webstandards compliance and more webstandards compliance
  • Bug fixes and what have you
  • I truly hope they have fixed the IntelliPoint accelerated scrolling issue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tune in tomorrow at “Beauty of the Web.”
