Microsoft Responds to War - Launches First Beta toInternet Explorer 9, with hardware support
In an effort to remain relevant in the browser market and to block The continued decline in market share של Internet Explorer in their favor of Chrome and FireFox, launched today Microsoft Office The first beta version of the new version of the browser, IE9.
At a glittering launch event in San Francisco entitled Beauty Of the Web, the company launched the new version - accompanied by an extensive worldwide marketing campaign - emphasizing the browser's work speed, its integration with Windows 7 and its support is credited by leading sites such as social networks, eBay, Amazon And more.
As is well known,Internet Explorer 9 is the ability to take advantage of the graphics card for the processing and display of heavy Web sites, which reduces the load from the main processor and allows for better performance and smooth graphics and clean sites also loaded with Flash and HTML5. Implementing this capability in the browser means that web developers will be able to integrate more complex graphic elements on their sites, and even simulate entire work environments, while still allowing surfers to enjoy a flawless browsing experience. Of course, this is expected to improve the speed with which the content is displayed on the existing websites, thus hoping to find a solution to one of the main vulnerabilities of Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, which is considered the slowest and most "clumsy" browser among the existing browsers.
Microsoft stresses that the new browser is designed specifically for Windows 7 and users of the operating system "will feel at home". Among other things, the browser supports the Aero interface that allows you to easily skip between the various tabs and even display two tabs side by side. You can also drag sites directly to the taskbar and open them directly from there, like Apps Standard.
The design of the new browser is minimalist and clean, but there is a thorn in it - one of the new features of the browser is the ability of website developers to adapt it to their needs and change its color scheme arbitrarily, depending on the site you visit, to feel more "immersed" in content. Many may not like the idea of browser Which varies according to the vagaries of various companies, but Microsoft still notes this feature as innovative.
Among the sites that have already begun to adapt to the new capabilities of IE9 can be found all the major social networks (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn), commerce sites such as eBay and Amazon, entertainment sites, news and more. Microsoft even launched a special website - Beautyoftheweb.com - Centralizes the sites that take advantage of the new browser and contains detailed information about its new features, and how to get the most out of them.
