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.

Yeah I read about that somewhere, but I don't think it's been confirmed yet.

But it just makes no sense to me. Why go to all this trouble to prepare IE9, and then ship Windows Phone 7 a month or two early and not include IE9.

IE7 is slow, and non compliant, and will get loads of bad reviews. If MS is stupid enough to release Windows Phone 7 with an ancient browser, I'm pretty sure they will get a lot of bad reviews, and they will deserve each one.

I'm definitely not looking forward to start debugging even mobile browers for IE bugs :-(
