Microsoft Debuts Internet Explorer 9 Beta

By HTMLGoodies Staff

Microsoft today released Internet Explorer 9 Beta to the masses, announcing that it would work more quickly, display better graphics and be less obtrusive for users. The browser has until now only been available to developers, but as of today is available for anyone to download and try out.

At the release event in San Francisco today, Dean Hachamovitch, general manager for Internet Explorer, stated that "People go to the Web for site, not the browser. Today Web sites are boxed in, the box is the browser."
