    @Dean: All right, brace yourself:

    • How do you measure Internet Explorer stability and when it's ready for RTM?
    • Do you have a system in place for automated mass-testing Internet Explorer on the Web?
    • Does the beta have any kind of telemetry for latencies: when the GUI freezes, when a page takes a long time to load, etc.?
    • How many test cases do you have at present?
    • How do you see the future of Internet Explorer extensibility?
    • Internet Explorer 9 goes beyond tabs with nice taskbar integration - what's next? - Do you have other browsing metaphors in mind?
    • What do you think about Silverlight and the use of .NET in the browser?
    • Are you using PPL and ConcRT in Internet Explorer 9?
    • Now that Internet Explorer itself is hardware accellerated, isn't the next logical step to provide a means for Web programmers to program 3D models?
    • Where are the major security challenges?
    • What do you think the lifespan will be of the current Internet Explorer architechture?
    • What Web standard to you see as next candidates for implementation in Internet Explorer?
    • How do you determine what features to implement and not implement?
    • What do you think about Javascript as an application and/or framework language? Does the Web need a static language as well or is Javascript as an intermediate language Just Fineā„¢?
    • What do you think about Google Native Client (NaCl), is that kind of sandboxing something you think is a path worth exploring?
    • What do you think about the soundness of Web standards today - do you see any of them being "phased out" and replaced?
    • Is XHTML out and why [not]?

    @Charles: Will we see some V**** news soon? Smiley
