Internet Explorer Microsoft have released IE9 Platform Preview 3, an application that gives developers access to the IE9 rendering engine (it's not a full browser). In this update they have added hardware accelerated HTML5 Video, Canvas, Fonts (using WOFF) and big improvements in JavaScript with ES5, DOM Traversal, L2 and L3 events and 83/100 Acid3 score. It sits between Firefox and Chrome 6 on JavaScript speed, but outperforms every browser in real tests.

Not to be persnickety

But I always have meant to ask. Why do you talk of companies like Microsoft and Apple using plural verbs instead of the standard (in English, that is) of singular verb? E.g. "Microsoft has..."

It always sounds odd when I see "Microsoft have" or "Apple were" here on OSNews. :-)
