images/news/ie.jpgMicrosoft has delivered the public beta of Internet Explorer 9, the upcoming update to its web browser, adding a new user interface designed to be as stripped-down as possible.

The beta was unveiled today at simultaneous events in San Francisco and London.

The aim of the browser and new user interface is to deliver "rich immersive sites that look like a Windows application, where it'll be hard to tell that it's a web page at all," said Ian Moulster, product manager for IE9 at Microsoft UK.

Internet Explorer 9 is now available for download.

Yes, it's a beauty... but after all I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. Some pages dont render correctly (rich-edit in a few forums) and some add-ons load times are intolerable. :mellow:

Though it's still beta 1. Let's see what comes next...

~edit~

Well, after turning off HP SmartWebPrint add-on things became a bit better in terms of loading times.

:mellow:
