The beta hits.
IE9 is a very minimal browser. The new screen has a URL/Search button on the top and a back button, but nothing else is in immediate view. Some sites can be made "recognized" so that you can visit them straight from your desktop, as if they were an app. Tear-off tabs have also made their way into this new edition.
Will this new, simplified design be enough to stop IE from bleeding market share? The next few months should tell us for sure.
