Internet Explorer 9 Available for Download September 15th

Microsoft is about to release the completely revamped version of their browser, and we got this from Microsoft earlier today:

The wait is nearly over for the newest beta version of Microsoft’s browser, Internet Explorer 9. Starting on September 15, 2010 (PDT), users will be invited to download this newest test version. Internet Explorer 9 offers substantial improvements the current version including: a streamlined interface, full hardware-accelerated HTML5, modern SVG and native JavaScript integration, support for the Web Open Font Format as well as faster overall performance.

The new Internet Explorer 9 Beta provides a more secure, stable and fast browsing experience.

Internet Explorer 9 Beta is compatible with Windows Vista SP2 and Windows 7 PCs. It is not available for earlier versions of Windows Vista or with PCs running Windows XP.

We will be onsite at the announcement meeting on the 15th, and providing more details for everybody as the event goes on.

    Doesnt work, doesnt work, and doesnt work. I tried it 3 times and 3 times it failed. Couldnt even bring up my home page. It was stuck in a loop and took me forever to shut it down and then uninstalling is somewhat of a pain in the arse too. Save yourself the time and wait. MS always rolls it out early to let the public iron out the kinks.
