Microsoft Starts Development on IE9 ➝

SunSpider Test Comparison

Microsoft started work on Internet Explorer 9 three weeks ago. Microsoft’s focus is on supporting new standards like HTML5 and CSS3 alongside the development of a faster JavaScript rendering engine.

The chart above shows different browsers’ JavaScript performance running the SunSpider test. As you can see IE9 is already much faster than IE8 in JavaScript performance. And, I really hope that Microsoft reaches its other goal of making IE9 more standards compliant.

But, since you have to have Silverlight installed to view this video regarding IE 9’s support for standards and interoperability, I’m not going to get my hopes up.
