Internet Explorer "With the latest releases of Opera, Google Chrome and Firefox continuing to push the boundaries of the web, the once-dominant Internet Explorer is looking less and less relevant every day. But we should expect Microsoft to go on the offensive at its upcoming MIX 2010 developer conference in Las Vegas, where, it has been speculated, the company will demonstrate the first beta builds of Internet Explorer 9 and possibly offer a preview release of the browser to developers. Several clues point to the possibility that the next version of IE will include broad support for HTML5 elements, vector graphics and emerging CSS standards. If Microsoft plays its cards right in Vegas, IE 9 could be the release that helps IE get its groove back in the web browser game."

When IE9 get's released it will be a year or so after today ? First and for all their will NOT be an IE9 for Windows XP.

If you look at the numbers of people running Windows 7 2/3 came from Vista, not Windows XP. Vista market share is dropping like a brick in comparison to Windows XP.

While Windows XP is still 75% of the OS used for browsing the web (yes, many don't use IE. But just to give you an idea).

So I don't see IE9 making much of a dent.

Sorry. :-(
