By now many of you probably know that Microsoft is unveiling the full public beta of the much-hyped new version of its browser, Internet Explorer 9, today. For those of you who want to take IE9 for a spin, Microsoft just launched the page where you can download the new browser; under the URL BeautyOfTheWeb.com.
As we wrote in our initial review of IE9, the new browser is built for speed, takes advantage of the latest HTML5 and other modern Web technologies, and has a relatively simple UI. And the IE9 browser will only work on Windows computer, with Bing loaded as the default search engine.
For more on features included in IE9, check out Microsoft’s blog post here.
