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.

Starting to see adoption of "emerging" standards like html5 and css3 with this release, which historically MS has not done. It basically means that by the time IE8 goes away, IE will finally no longer be the lowest common denominator in what web guys can use and maintain browser compatibility.
