This version promises to be the best version of IE9 yet – and signals Microsoft’s intent to re-enter the browser wars with both tabs swinging. I plan on downloading the IE9 beta this weekend, to test on my Windows 7 partition, just to see for myself what all the fuss is about. What immediately drew my attention to this release was Microsoft’s focus on minimalism in its browser interface design. It actually looks quite modern.
Despite the tongue-in-cheek jab within the comic above, I’m really happy to see MS back in the ring. Competition is a good thing. Have the IE9 beta yet? What do you think? For those of you running Windows with another browser, has the IE9 beta convinced you to switch back? Not a fan of IE in general? Which browser du jour represents your favorite (and why)?
