Description

Get your hands on the IE9 developer platform preview!

The IE team has been very busy working on the next version of Internet Explorer, aka IE 9. Today, you can get your hands on a developer preview and experience the joys surfing on metal with GPU powered HTML5. Yep, that's HTML5. Microsoft loves HTML5 and CSS 3.

Here, IE GM Dean Hachamovitch and Rob Mauceri discuss how they're taking IE to a new level with all graphic rendering taking place on the GPU via the DirectX technology D2D and a new JavaScript engine that compiles JavaScript to machine code and can do this in a way that takes advantage of multi-core architectures (you will learn much more about this in the coming weeks..).

Summary: IE9, which you can get in your hands now in the form of a developer preview, enables you to exploit the power of the GPU in ways you already understand (CSS, HTML, JavaScript).

Check out all of the IE9 content on C9.
