Microsoft launches Internet Explorer 9 web browser

IE9 contains many new features, many of which are designed to make the browser perform more like an app – the small programs commonly found on smartphones. These specialist pieces of software, which offer a customised and intuitive way to interact with a website, are gaining increasing popularity. IE9 is designed to help blur those boundaries. To do this, Microsoft has adopted technology that allows the browser to tap directly into a computer’s graphics chip, rather than just its processor. Many features will be familiar to users of other browsers This “hardware acceleration” makes web pages more nimble and behave more like software running directly on the computer.
