IE9 Will Launch On BeautyOfTheWeb.com
By on September 11th, 2010

Internet Explorer 9 LogoMicrosoft has been hiding IE9 from users and enthusiasts alike, shrouding it in secrecy like Apple does before a product is launched. This definitely puts Microsoft in a very tight situation since it cannot fail like it has done with IE7 and IE8.

The motto of IE9 is Beauty of The Web, and we definitely want to see it to believe it, considering that IE has always been a pain in the posterior for developers and designers alike.

IE9 Beauty of The Web

To be really truthful, I do not care about IE9 unless it does something better than , or . The time IE8 takes to open a tab would allow me to open and browse between 4-8 tabs on any of these browsers. Yes I have timed it, IE is that slow.

Unless IE9 does things that are drastically different, don’t keep your hopes high on it. I would definitely want to see a better browser, though I am not sure if I would see something better than I have already seen that will compel me to switch.

Microsoft has been losing browser market share consistently for past few years, and it does not help Microsoft that they are not doing enough or doing it quickly in the market they once ruled. It does not matter how many new feature IE9 adds, it has to be compelling enough for people to switch.

If you are waiting for IE9, mark your dates at September 15, 2010 and bookmark http://www.beautyoftheweb.com.

    A big gaping flaw in your argument is that IE does not need to be compelling enough for people like you to switch back. Even if it can do enough to keep people using it happy, it will continue to lead the browser share. It is the other browsers who have to do the running. If IE9 is comparable (or just behind) to Chrome, why would an IE user switch to Chrome?
