Internet Explorer 9 Leaks A Little
 
 

Are you excited about IE 9? Microsoft's browser may be under 60% for the first time in quite a while, but that still represents a commanding lead. Many of you may be interested to hear that the first screenshot of Internet Explorer's next iteration has leaked out (ZDNet). Microsoft Russia's press site accidentally posted the shot early.

While they've removed it, that didn't stop the image from spreading like wildfire. IE 9 is expected to go live on September 15 during Microsoft's San Francisco launch event. From what we can see, Microsoft has gone to lengths to trim down the excess junk in IE. There's a URL/Search button up top and a back button, but nothing else.

IE users will now see only what they need to navigate. There will also be a way to make certain sites "recognized" or "protected". You'll be able to go directly to those pages without needing to open an IE window first. In essence, these special sites will be treated as apps. Tear-off tabs, something Firefox and Safari users have enjoyed for a while, will also come with IE 9.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
