Microsoft just announced the results from their latest preview version of Internet Explorer 9, and the results are good. Typically results are measured using the Acid3 accuracy test, designed to verify that the browser is displaying the website code accurately.
In the past, Safari and Chrome has scored perfectly on the test, with FireFox coming in at a 94. The results the Microsoft reported using IE9 are on par with the score that FireFox received, meaning that this version of IE9 will most likely be the final beta. What’s more interesting is that this will be the first version of Internet Explorer to use graphics hardware acceleration, meaning it could run faster then Safari 5 on the Windows platform.
