In May, we have reported about IE 9.0 possible release some time next year but it seems that Microsoft is very curious to regain its supremacy in browser market. That may be the reason why company has decided to prepend the release date of IE 9.0 as 15 September in an upcoming event in San Francisco. Company is looking further to turn the market back with IE 9.0 and ensure tough time to all new released browsers like Mozila, Crome and Opera.
The September event will mark the first time the world will have the chance to play with the beta for the entirely overhauled browser. The first details surrounding IE9 were revealed back in November. Since then, Microsoft has launched four platform previews detailing IE9’s adherence to web standards.
More importantly though, the platform previews tout the browser’s hardware acceleration capability, which we have to say is nothing short of impressive — check out the video below to see what we mean.
Microsoft is serious about its position in the web browser market. While Internet Explorer remains the world’s most popular browser, it has experienced a steady decline since 2004. Recently though, Microsoft’s browser has been staging a comeback, slowly regaining market one percentage point at a time.
We’ll see if Microsoft can really deliver on its promise to “beautify the web” next month.
