On Tuesday, Microsoft released the latest version of their Internet Explorer line of web browsers, Internet Explorer 9, which promises to be much faster and more powerful than its predecessors. This new browser has come out after roughly two years of the release of the last of its kind, Internet Explorer 8. According to the press release by Microsoft, the company has released the new browser after its beta version had been downloaded more than 40 million times from the internet. The browser uses the latest web programming language which uses hardware acceleration, HTML 5, which will enable Internet Explorer 9 to harness and utilize power straight from the graphics processing unit of a computer. This is likely to open many more promising possibilities for the website developers who can now design much faster which are much more immersive and can utilize Windows 7 better.
The senior director of Adobe’s Flash Player Engineering, Paul Betlem, said in the press release that the bar in web browser performances has actually been raised by the new Internet Explorer which now allows Flash Player to tap into a computer’s graphical hardware resources that create a situation in which graphical performance of the browser will be much improved and the users will get the rich and fast experience that they want from the internet.
According to Microsoft, the new browser includes a number of robust technologies to improve privacy, reliability and security which are built in and keep the users safer while surfing on the net. The data which the users want to share online can be controlled by tracking control which allows them to select the websites that they don’t want to share information with. Pinned Sites and Jump Lists are the other much talked about features which have been added into Internet Explorer 9.
