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.

One more thing. Right now web designers & developers need to spend time fixing bugs in IE7 because it has such a large share.

But I can't see that happening for mobile sites, where the good mobile browsers (webkit & opera) are already compliant and have a majority of the share.

The result will be that users browsing from IE7 on WinPhone7 will see a large majority of mobile sites broken, and they will rightly blame MS for that.
