    Today’s read: IE9 Review 


    I am a big Microsoft fan, though I work in open-source. Every time when they come up with  a new product or a major upgrade, I keep my fingers crossed. Reasons are pretty obvious. Today I got a chance to read an article on IE9 – Internet Explorer 9 Beta: Reviewed and Benchmarked – and I’m pretty much happy with the progress they made.

    Microsoft is making some bold claims with the release of Internet Explorer 9 Beta. They explain that other browsers, unlike IE9 Beta, only use 10% of your PC’s capabilities; they show how websites will be streamlined and work faster by taking advantage of your graphics processing unit (GPU), and how a range of new features will provide a richer experience when combined with Windows 7. Today, we will be looking at what new features IE9 Beta has to offer, and how it performs when bench-marked against Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera.

    New enhanced Microsoft Live Search 

    Microsoft, the world’s largest software maker, said Windows Live search is now on an even technology footing with offerings from rival search engines after years of playing catch-up since it started developing its own Web search in 2003.

    Its new presentation is in line with an industry trend to step beyond traditional text links, with unified search results that offer Web sites, news, pictures and video on one page. Rivals Google Inc and Ask.com made similar changes this year, and Yahoo Inc is moving in that direction.

    “Microsoft is realistic. It doesn’t think it’s going to wake up tomorrow and overtake Google,” said Allen Weiner, an analyst at research firm Gartner. “Right now, Microsoft wants to establish itself more firmly with its existing users.”
