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.

"Windows Internet Explorer Platform Preview Setup does not support any operating system earlier than Windows Vista SP2."

So much for the preview. For some XP/IE6 users that could be the first IE release worth upgrading to.
