Microsoft is preparing to unveil Internet Explorer 9 in September, however, there have been several IE9 screenshots which have been leaked in the past few weeks.
A new Microsoft IE9 user interface screenshot was reportedly posted on Microsoft Russia’s press site, this was spotted by Mary-Jo Foley of ZDNet.
As you can see from the screenshot above, IE9 sports a very minimal interface with only few buttons on the top bar and icons for home, favorites and settings on the right hand top corner. According to Mary, IE9 may also support web applications, where users can easily open any website without having to open Internet Explorer.
Hopefully, in the next few weeks we would be able to end speculation on what IE9 is going to turn out like and see the actual browser in action. Oh well there are just 3 weeks left before the unveiling on September 15th.
