    Internet Explorer 8 will be not only an apex of performance, but also the next major iteration of the  Windows client, according to Microsoft. After the Windows Vista experience, Microsoft has developed a comprehensive strategy for evolving the Windows 7 performance, introducing a set of criteria that will dictate whether the operating system will get shipped or not. One small part of the Redmond giant's efforts to drive the performance of Windows 7, is working with the community of partners and developers building hardware and software products around the operating system. In this context, Microsoft is offering a set of utilities it is using internally to sniff out performance issues.

    Wait, a web browser is going to be the Windows client?

    Softpedia interprets everything wrong.

    Those tools have nothing to do with Windows 7.

    In addition to working on Windows 7 specific features and services, we are sharing tools, tests and data with our partners. The tools are available to enthusiasts as well. The tools we use internally to detect and correct boot issues are freely available today here as a part of the Windows Performance Toolkit. While not appropriate for most users, the tools are proving to be very helpful for some.

    Umm I downloaded some xperf tools months ago, is there something new here or just marketing for them?
