Posted by at 1:10 am on August 5, 2010

Microsoft  has posted the fourth and last Platform Preview of Internet Explorer 9 with its first truly high web accuracy score. The release finally moves the company’s new Chakra engine for JavaScript into the browser itself and scores 95 on the  difficult Acid3 accuracy test  which has long be a pain in Microsoft’s side..

At least one beta of IE9 is due, which puts the more publicly available version of the browser sometime in September. No clues have been given of the timetable for a final release.

E9 is one of the first Microsoft browsers designed primarily with accuracy in mind and will bring the browser up to date with technologies that have existed elsewhere for months such as partial H L5 support. It will be the first Microsoft browser to use graphics hardware (GPU) for rendering.
