Ainsley Jones

Microsoft unveiled the release candidate of Internet Explorer 9. Two features of the browser being highlighted are privacy and speed, according to The Wall Street Journal. IE9 is equipped with built-in privacy features to give users more control over which sites are tracking their Web movements. In addition, the browser leverages hardware acceleration technology to assist Web pages in playing multimedia content faster and more smoothly.


Dean Hachamovitch, corporate vice president of Internet Explorer, told BBC News:

This release is one that is playing catch up [on past releases], but it leapfrogs everything and now you see the other folks on the back foot trying to catch up with us.
