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.

Renders HORRIBLY. Which is kind of funny being MSNBC.

HA! Guess what? I just had a series of important updates pop up... now I can see MSNBC just fine (after the updates were applied and my system rebooted).

Interesting.

Anyway, so far so good with IE9b.

Well, after using it for the afternoon, I found that it just didn't compare to Chrome... not just yet. For now Chrome will remain my primary browser, while I use IE for playing.

Still using it as much as possible. I added some notes in another post above this one.

Don't worry. It renders horribly in other browsers, too. It's MSNBC, so it's never funny. Come to think of it, no MS site is funny anymore. They're just sad.
