Internet Explorer After several months and preview releases, Microsoft has finally lifted the curtain for the Windows Explorer 9 beta release. Internet Explorer 9 is Microsoft's attempt at not just catching up to the competition, but at actually surpassing them. Since enough sites will be focusing on just how many nanoseconds faster or slower the beta is compared to the competition, I'll talk a little about the new minimalist interface.

OSX renders fonts very close to the intended glyphs, giving a close representation to what you see when you print. Windows thins fonts out, to optimize for on screen readability, but ends up being not as "accurate"

It takes about half a day for most people to get used to one or the other, but seeing them side by side is jarring.
