Microsoft has unveiled a few details about the version of Internet Explorer 9 in its annual MIX10 event for developers.
At the MIX10 which runs from March 15 to 17, 2010 in Las Vegas in the United States, the head of the IE team at Microsoft will discuss changes and improvements made to Internet Explorer 9 from the limited information provided in the month of last November. It is by no cons said that following a trial version will be proposed, but who knows, Microsoft has done in the past. More at MIX08, a beta version of IE8 was released.
Better compliance with web standards would already welcome. Microsoft is clearly committed to this path by showing particular interest in CSS3, HTML or even 5. Even if this is not the ultimate reference, the first builds of IE9 have recorded better on the Acid3 test compared to IE8, but the account is still far from being.
Given the audience’s MIX10 is probably on these points that Microsoft will make an assessment next month, not necessarily refer to the new user experience (new features). Likely also be recalled that the operation of the graphics hardware acceleration based on DirectX, and support Direct Write, Direct 2D.
