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.

It's just a simple app to make use of the rendering engine. It is the rendering engine we are talking about here - not the the functionality of the application as a whole.

You CAN navigate to other sites - there is a primitive pop up text box where you can enter URLs. But this isn't meant to be a complete and useful application, it is meant to showcase the most important part of the browser.
