Microsoft today released a Platform Preview for the latest installment of its Web browser, Internet Explorer 9. This is really just important to developers at this point, because most of the changes are back-end technology enhancements.
Microsoft also promises to make the standard browser-upgrade enhancements of faster load times, improved user control, and more wide-reaching support for advanced content.
"The goal of standards and interoperability is that the same HTML, script, and formatting markup work the same across different browsers. Eliminating the need for different code paths for different browsers benefits everyone, and creates more opportunity for developers to innovate," wrote Microsoft in an official blog post.
