Internet Explorer 9 has just been rolled in as a preview on Microsoft Test Drive site. It is just an early preview of Internet Explorer 9 platform. A lot of features are still incomplete and thus Internet Explorer 9 can not be used as a full fledge browser. Let’s take a look at some of the new features that are being added to Internet Explorer 9.
Acid test is a popular test to measure the browser’s web standards compliance. Unfortunately IE 9 Preview seems to fail this test.
The CSS3 .info Selectors Test measures a browser’s support for CSS3 Selectors. IE 9 passes these selector tests.
Internet Explorer 9 requires atleast Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7. So it can not be run on Windows XP. Internet Explorer 9 pre-requisites include that Internet Explorer 8 and DirectX2D must be installed on the system where IE 9 has to be installed.
To have a more detailed preview what Internet Explorer 9 can do for you, just go to this Microsoft Test Drive site and install a preview of IE 9.
