IE to the Nines

IE 8 came out just last year, and already beta testers are getting excited about IE 9. In fact, over 700,000 folks just like you have downloaded the developer preview. The new rev has a speedier rendering engine and HTML5.

The fast creation of a new IE shows that Microsoft remains 100 percent committed to the browser market, and would likely be embarrassed if it ultimately lost to FireFox or even worse, Chrome.

I still hear complaints about IE, but I use it for about 10 percent of my browsing and for me it works just fine.

What should Microsoft do to really make IE great? Advice welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
