New Internet Explorer (IE9) Beta UI Video Sneak Peek
Advertisement
#1

With approximately a week left until Microsoft will debut the public Beta of its revolutionary Internet Explorer 9 browser, new leaks allow users to get a better idea of what the company has in store for them come September 15th, 2010.

The video embedded at the bottom of this article is reportedly offering a sneak peek at the Beta development milestone of Internet Explorer 9, which is scheduled for launch next week at the “Beauty of the Web” event in San Francisco.

The source of the video claims that it is in the possession of the IE9 Beta installer, and while it has not leaked the actual bits, it did demo the new browser,.


Fact is that with the official Internet Explorer 9 Beta just eight days away, it’s probable that the IE team has already wrapped up at least pre-Beta Builds, if not the actual release that will be delivered to the public.

Recently, Microsoft Russia managed to leak details of the upcoming IE9 Beta, as well as what appeared to be a screenshot of the browser.

The new IE9 graphical user interface can also be seen in the new video provided by IEBest, and that’s pretty much it, as far as the new leaked content on the evolution of Internet Explorer goes.

Of course, for those counting the seconds to the IE9 Beta release, the actual build from the software giant is just around the corner.

Microsoft has even kicked off an advertising campaign for Internet Explorer 9, first spotted by Long Zheng.

The new IE9 Beta banner ads are now live on at least one website, but are most probably being served from additional sources, advertising the imminent release of the Build.

In the context of the new advertising campaign, the message from Microsoft could not be clearer.

While the four Platform Preview releases of IE9 were designed for a developer audience, IE9 Beta will be a full browser ready for the general public.

Of course, users should keep in mind that IE9 will continue to be in development even after the Beta Build lands, but they should by all means download the development milestone and start testing it.

IE9's Graphics Acceleration Better Than Chrome and Firefox

Quote:Since November of last year, one of Microsoft's big themes for Internet Explorer 9 has been "graphics hardware acceleration" using Windows DirectX. Just last week, Mozilla's Firefox 4 beta turned on graphics hardware acceleration by default. And last March, the Google Chrome team announced its ANGLE project to do something similar, while just last week a Google engineer blogged about Chrome 7 including graphics acceleration.

In response, Microsoft's Program Manager Lead for Web Graphics, Ted Johnson, has just posted on the IEblog, claiming that while other browser may be starting to implement graphics hardware acceleration, only IE9's is "full."

In the blog post, Johnson claims that IE9 graphics hardware acceleration works with "everything on every Web page—text, images, backgrounds, borders, SVG content, HTML5 video and audio—using the Windows DirectX graphics APIs. With Platform Preview 3 in July, IE9 introduced a hardware-accelerated HTML5 canvas." The competing API for web graphics, WebGL, only accelerates that last, and Google's ANGLE (Almost Native Graphics Layer Engine) project is only concerned with translating some WebGL code to display using Windows DirectX, which enjoys far more support on today's PC hardware.
