Microsoft released Internet Explorer 9 Beta today for Windows 7 and Windows Vista users. This version has been streamlined with unneccesary buttons and controls removed and the fresh and uncluttered browser is being hailed as speedy by Preston Gralla at Computerworld. Gralla gave IE9 beta a test run on a Dimension 9200 using Windows Vista and has provided a very comprehensive review.
A nice feature is one that is similar to Safari 4's handy feature. When you open a new tab, a screen appears showing thumbnails of the sites you visit most so that you can go directly to them.
In the video below you'll see the feature that allows you to "pin" sites that you visit frequently to the task bar just by clicking the browser tab and dragging it.
All in all it looks like Internet Explorer 9 beta is being well received. You can download the new browser which is available in thirty three languagesÂ now.
