Windows 7: Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) Cool New Features

Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) Cool New Features


Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) will come with cool new features, beyond what the four Platform Preview releases of the browser have offered early adopters.

While Microsoft is completely mum on the feature set for the next major iteration of Internet Explorer, fact is that the company has already decided on the goodies that the successor of IE8 will bring to the table.

Moreover, the software giant has also been sharing details related to the new features in Internet Explorer 9 internally, according to Jon Box, an Architect Evangelist in Microsoft Developer & Platform Evangelism.

This should of course, come as no surprise, especially since Microsoft is well known for dogfooding its own software (eating its own dog food, namely testing products internally).

“I was at an internal training session a couple of weeks back. And I saw lots of cool WP7 demo’s. But, I also witnessed some cool IE9 features,” Box revealed at the end of the past week.

Microsoft has not confirmed officially any features for IE9, but according to Box, the wait will certainly be worth it.

With the last Platform Preview of IE9 already available, Microsoft is now focusing on wrapping up the first Beta development milestone of the browser.

Yes, and even the presence of Direct2D Hardware Acceleration provides great advantages. I think only FF also uses this technology.
