Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview build

Only a while ago, Microsoft unveiled a platform preview build of IE9 to developers at MIX10, which shall have native support for new web-technologies such as HTML5 and GPU-based hardware acceleration.........
The most notable improvements in IE9 is the Microsoft's new javascript engine, they call it 'Chakra', as well as support for several standards such as HTML5, DOM, and CSS3. In the demo for IE9, it was also shown how the hardware-accelerated graphics capability of the browser allow it to render the same HTML, script, and CSS markup much faster as compared to other browser. Also, IE9 happens to be the first browser to provide hardware-accelerated SVG support.
The platform preview build can be downloaded at the IE9 Test Drive website. Please note that the platform preview is not a full web browser and should not be used for a daily user. Rather it should only be used by developers for preliminary testing purposes. A beta for IE9 will be available soon.
