IE 9 Readied for Release

IE 9 is as close to shipping as you can get -- without actually shipping. Tomorrow IE 9 will be a release candidate, which means Microsoft thinks it's ready to go (but isn't 100 percent sure). The software is 100 percent feature-complete and stable.

If the final round of testing goes well, IE 9 will be officially available.

The two newest IE 9 items addressed are improved speed and the ability to block sites that harvest clickstream data.

Are you looking forward to IE 9 with its HTML 5 support? Let me know at dbarney@1105media.com.
