Internet Explorer As predicted, more Microsoft news from MIX10, and this is some big stuff: Internet Explorer 9. As we all know, Microsoft really let Internet Explorer rot away, allowing competitors to make much better browsers with better standards compliance and performance. With IE9, Microsoft is aiming to not just close that gap - but to overtake the competition. Update: Ars has an in-depth look at the platform preview.

In particular they are adding a non-compatible video tag (doesn't support royalty free theora codec). The average "incompatibility rate" of IE will still remain high.

They are not doing "same markup, same results" for the new elements, e.g. video element.
