Internet Explorer 9 Out of Beta on March 14th

The final version of Internet Explorer 9 is launching on March 14, in time for a party at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas.


The new design takes on a minimalist approach which gives the user more browsing room and places browser tabs in a single strip alongside the omnibar. Microsoft also added a download manager and support for HTML5 video. The new browser is apparently winning over critics for being significantly faster and more user friendly.

IE6 Smackdown!

Microsoft has taken the step of creating a new site IE6countdown.com to bring awareness and reduce the usage of the old Internet Explorer version 6 (IE6) across the world.


The main page shows a world chart and market penetration (if you want to call it that) of the IE6 browser. Microsoft has been pushing web surfers to upgrade to a newer browser, hopefully IE9, which is slated to be released from beta later this month. Overall, usage share was down to 12% across the world.
