Microsoft released its much awaited new browser, Internet Explorer 9. Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) is a radical shift for Microsoft, with a new focus on standards compliance and performance, two things that previous version of Internet Explorer have lacked. IE8, the predecessor to IE9, was a market disappointment because it failed to address those two key areas. Internet Explorer 9 is built to handle the developing web standard HTML5, something that has put it at odds with certain Microsoft in-house technologies, such as Silverlight. The browser’s year-long development cycle through preview, beta, RC, RTM, and now finally launch, has brought it industry plaudits.
