MS Unveils IE 9 - Faster, More Web Compilant, DX Powere

Quote:
It's only three weeks into its development, but Internet Explorer 9 has officially been unveiled today at the Professional Developers Conference (PDC). In fact, as I write this now, they're still talking about IE9 and other tech advances over on the Microsoft PDC09 website.

Their goals with IE9 seem pretty obvious from the graphs shown in their presentation: faster, more standards-compliant website rendering. If you look at the slide above, lower is faster. And that's just three weeks into their development of a new browser and web rendering engine!

Awesome...maybe IE9 will be the version that gets people off from IE6. From my work experience, it's usually application imcompatibilities with newer versions of IE...that force corporations into using old versions of IE.

Maybe they should work on making code render like other browsers instead of being their own thing.....

Other than that, I hope it works well. I don't (and won't) use it. But still hope it comes out good.

They are especially working on it being Web Compliant with accepted standards and its results on the acid 3 tests...

Microsoft need to make it work, simply put, with java performance to rival that of other browsers. The IE7 interface was better than that of IE8 (aka lost the plot!) although it ran java increasingly more slowly.

I was an IE fan, way back at the time NetCaptor introduced a tabbed front end, however in recent times I've switched to Opera (not least because W7 hasn't got an eMail client and Opera does) and others have gone to Firefox of course.

My money is currently on Chrome, however I'm not going to install it until there's a real sidebar as it's awkward to use with several thousand bookmarks!

I'd look at IE9, but if I smell any more bloat it'll be uninstalled again

IE7/8 was pretty stable for me, compared to any other browser. Ran well with everything I wanted to do.

I still run into sites (mainly silverlight/microsoft sites) that don't work well with Chrome, but if IE9 can produce a 'better' UI (please prettyfullness!)

So will IE8 come out in a x64 version or will they skip it and focus on the 64bit IE9 version?

IE is already out for x64...it is available to use when you install either Vista x64 or 7 x64...

Most people don't use it or Firefox x64 or others because of lack of flash for x64 and other browser plugins that don't support x64 yet

IE8 has a 64-bit version, comes pre-installed on all versions of Windows x64 I believe.

I doubt IE9 will be 64-bit only since.. well it just makes sense that its not the proper time.
