Yesterday Microsoft released it’s next-gen browser Internet Explorer 9, beta.
Seems quite a long time a go when Microsoft was holding 95% share in the browser arena. Things changed a bit though: roughly holding 50% market share nowadays, Microsoft looks like wishing to rescue with a strong come back, attempting to slow down Firefox and Chrome’s rise.
The lightened new look follows Chrome’s minimal user interface, wiping out the screen area making more room available to render page content.
On the capabilities side, the new browser will support HTML5,CSS3,SVG, ICC Color Profiles, DOM L2 and L3 & ECMAScript5.
