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.
