Sneak Peek at New Internet Explorer

Microsoft’s renaissance continues: A screenshot has leaked of what appears to be the upcoming Internet Explorer 9, and it looks good! Web Monkey summarizes, “Among the notable details visible in the screenshot are a unified search and URL bar a la Google’s Chrome browser, an enlarged back button, much like what you’ll find in Firefox, and a noticeable lack of menu items in the main bar … In short, it looks like Microsoft has decided that less is more by greatly simplifying the browser UI.” IE9 is expected to be faster and include support for HTML5.
