The title is a little bit misleading being more typical hype. But you have to take into consideration the leading role MS has played in the greater extent over the years. With that in mind you then look at how Adobe, SUN, and other software companies as well as web developers have to work in stride with each other to keep things more or less standardized.

Also what if there is no GPU? Won't you have problems if you have an integrated graphics card? (Not me though)
One of the main differences between the open source community and MS is that anyone can submit an improved version of something while MS will release updates for the same version to address the same things rather then seeing an IE 8a, IE 8b, IE 8c series of releases.

With Opera for example that would see a 9.62 then 9.63 onto the 10.01 and now 10.5 with Unite. As far as using IE 9 seeing enough support for integrated grpahics such as with laptops, netbooks, and desktops(premade or custom) where no separate video card is installed MS would be sending the early stages to each OEM manufacturer for testing and further feedback to see working results.

That's where the time consumption is seen mainly. Finally the beta arrives that can be released to the general public once it has progressed far enough to see an evaluation stage for consumer review and feedback there.

Slow and careful however is always far better then "haste makes waste"! Give me a working browser! Thank you!

While this is true, it does also affect end-user adoption rates and market-shares for companies. A long development time is one of the many reasons former IE users have since switched to alternative browsers.

A lot of users are more inclined to 'tolerate' a few bugs and subsequent patches in newer browsers than wait for a fully working new 'old faithful' browser.

Ultimately though, regardless of who incorporates this technology into their browsers, the end result is a richer browsing experience for everyone no matter what platform they use.

Good read, JMH & Night Hawks...Thanks.

Got a score of 64fps & 36 images on the test preview and the mouse is running very smooth, Map Zooming is just amazing!

You certainly wouldn't want to "take forever" in order to stay on top for sure! Typically however each new version of IE just happens to proceed the next new version of Windows like IE 7 did with Vista and then onot IE 8 before 7's release. IE 9 would obviously be scheduled to proceed W8 in the MS tradition there.

Appreciate the flowers!

Every 8 weeks or so until the beta is seen you should be seeing a new set of test drive previews. Keep a watch for the next batch.

a little off topic but not by much i remeber when apple computers used IE as there only browser. back on topic it will be interesting to see if Microsoft can change the web. and for once have a browser that is fast and more stable.

The fruit barrel had a 5yr. agreement with MS to have IE as the default browser back in 1997. Those were the IE 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, and 5 versions still seeing the same code base. MS ended all support for IEMac at the end of 2005. Internet Explorer for Mac - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They even posted their own page in regards to the recent changes seen in IE for authoring websites that are IE compatible. Authoring Websites for Compatibility with Internet Explorer for Windows FAQ

I think they will be needing a new one once IE 9 reaches the final stage.

The thing that will be most interesting however is seeing the actual minimum requirements as far as graphics processing capability is concerned since that will play a role for those running laptops, netbooks, and desktops lacking a separate expansion card relying on the onboard vpu. I think this is the one area that has everyone intrigued the most due to now seeing hidden potentials being explored.

First we see 7 start utilizing vpu power in sync with the cpu for boosting performance with older as well as lower end video cards plus helping a bit with integrated graphics. For IE MS now wants to be somewhat of a trend setter by being the first to explorer vpu power applied to the web.

If they actually prevail at the end of the day this will have lasting effects on web browsing for a long time to come despite what is seen with other browsers in general. Improvement in performance and stability should be the side benefit. The patches and updates would be made up for that.

Update:

Many may not be aware of the popup box for entering any web address with the IE 9 Test Drive Previews. The screen here shows how SF looks when opening the top of this thread.

Read the blog seen at: http://www.lostintechnology.com/how-...ar-web-browser

You won't have any forward or back buttons in the preview however.
