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.

Funny thing ;)

I get 1 FPS with 4 satellites using Google Chrome 5.0.375.70 on Windows Server 2008. With Firefox 3.6.4 on Windows I get 11-13 FPS. Looks like the hardware acceleration in Windows is rather spotty.
