Hardware accelerated <canvas> is amazing!

Try the asteroid belt and tile switch game in Chrome... I barely get 1 fps without hardware acceleration.

What do people think of IE9 so far? Is it going to be a good browser, or just a lot of hype? A Guy

I think it will be great with all the work Microsoft put into their JavaScript engine (almost as fast as Chrome 6 and Opera 10.60 now), CSS3, and HTML5.

One thing it has a big advantage over the other browsers right now is GPU hardware acceleration. Scrolling, animations, zooming, transitions, and canvas are ridiculously fast on IE9.

Really looking forward to testing the beta version!

I tried running it in Ubuntu 10.04 under Wine but it says that I need Vista SP2 or higher. :P

Try switching Wine's compatibility settings to Vista or 7.

Chromium builds have had hardware acceleration for the past couple of weeks as well. I have to say, it's nice to see IE trying to fight it's way back into the browser wars...

Edit: According to Download Squad, IE9 blows Chrome out of the water on HTML5 speed tests.

Thanks for the tip. I was able to get further through the installer, but halfway it told me that I need IE8 to run the preview. Installing IE8 isn't possible, even with compatibility setting on Windows 7/Vista.

Isn't Firefox 4 going for GPU acceleration as well?

Yep, and according to the download squad article, FF4 keeps up with IE9...which is pretty shocking in itself.

Is anyone getting any performance increase from Chromium trunk without the --enable-gpu-rendering --enable-video-layering switches to with them? I'm not.

IE just needs to implement WebGL (highly unlikely), WebSockets, and Web Workers for me to switch to it (when it comes out) from Chrome.
