Quote:

There are just a few days left until Microsoft will launch Internet Explorer 9 Beta, with the Beauty of the Web event on September 15th getting closer and closer, and the company notes that it is welcoming the competition from rival browsers in terms of hardware acceleration, but that IE9 is best in breed in this regard.

Hardware acceleration involves leveraging the computer’s GPU (graphics processing unit) in concert with DirectX APIs in order to enhance graphics performance for all webpage content.

Two more days and the beta is out! through the regular MS sources that is!

IE 9 will be taking advantage of the vpu power for a change as a tool for both 2D and 3D rendering which will likely end up in seeing far fewer lags when loading pages typically seeing the ads animation slow things down a bit.

Of course, it is only a matter of time before the other browsers have this too.

Bet the MS haters cant wait until tomorrow. Their fingers must be itching to type their usual pointless crap about how everything MS does is rubbish.

Personally i cant wait to give up using FF, although im not sure its going to happen just yet.
