Faster IE 9 Preview Pops

I've been looking into IE 9 recently (if you want to help me with my upcoming cover story, please write to dbarney@redmondmag.com).

The beta so far seems solid. Some of you love it, some have had it chew your machine up and spit it back out.

Now here is where it gets confusing: There is an IE 9 beta that is pretty much feature-complete. I'm looking to interview users of that version, so again, e-mail me at dbarney@redmondmag.com if you want to talk.

Yesterday's release was a so-called "platform previews" which is not feature complete and aimed at performance and compatibility testing.

The latest PP (see, yet another sketchy acronym) has improved JavaScript performance and lets developers stress performance through Sudoku puzzles and a 3-D map of the planets.

What do you want to see in new browsers? Tell us all by writing dbarney@redmondmag.com.
