I've been covering IE 9 quite a bit, mostly because so many of you tell me it is so much better than IE 8, 7 and especially 6.
Today we should really find out for sure, as this puppy will be available tonight. The product should be pretty clean. After all, beta testers gave some 17,000 different bits of feedback.
One of the biggest new items is HTML 5, which offers Flash- and Silverlight-style graphics, video and animation. But HTML 5 is still a work in progress, so Microsoft is only supporting those features it deems most stable.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is begging corporations to migrate IE 6-dependents apps to the far more standards-friendly and secure IE 9. Of course, in this economy, anything that costs money is looked at very carefully. I expect to continue to see IE 6 apps for a while.
For more on IE 9, check out this recent Q&A we did with Microsoft's Senior Director of Internet Explorer.
