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.

I tried using 3.7a but the 64-bit version for Windows is still buggy. ;) Screen goes black when you hover over certain parts of pages. Otherwise it looks nice (FF overall, that is).

HW acceleration doesn't work in Chrome (or if it does, very badly). Not that I/we NEED it yet. Anyway, when FF stabilizes a little more I will check it out again, it is looking pretty decent.
