Original OSNews Interviews If the latest reports on IE9 preview are accurate, then this is a very encouraging development: "The fourth and final Platform Preview for Internet Explorer 9 was released today, along with a raft of new HTML5 demos and tests." Microsoft have reportedly further improved IE9's performance and standards compliance.

I don't care so much about sunspider or any other synthetic test. Way more important is the UI responsiveness, an area where IE has been hideous so far. I have some low-powered Atom hardware at work, and with IE8 it takes several seconds just to open a new tab. Chrome and Firefox are essentially instant. So hopefully they've worked on their UI responsiveness and not just the rendering engine.
