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.

Then you design YOUR UI with wrapper code that is able to reference two different underlying libraries and rely on build scripts to know which to compile into the application. There are ways to do this on the developers' end and once the work is done it's done.

Hopefully you will have designed it with the future in mind and the ability to add to the API when needed and not to have to rewrite large chunks as things change underneath.
