IE9 Aims to Out-Chrome Chrome

Microsoft on Wednesday released the open beta version of Internet Explorer 9, a browser tightly integrated with Windows 7 and designed to fend off the rising threat of Google’s Chrome browser and other competitors. The version unveiled Wednesday is by far the most complete look most people will have yet at this version of Microsoft’s browser. Earlier this year, Microsoft released developer preview builds that had no user interface or security features and were intended only to show off standards compliance advancement and performance enhancements.
