It’s only three weeks into its development, but Internet Explorer 9 has officially been unveiled today at the Professional Developers Conference (PDC). In fact, as I write this now, they’re still talking about IE9 and other tech advances over on the Microsoft PDC09 website.
Their goals with IE9 seem pretty obvious from the graphs shown in their presentation: faster, more standards-compliant website rendering. If you look at the slide above, lower is faster. And that’s just three weeks into their development of a new browser and web rendering engine!
