Internet Explore 9beta

Sep 24

I remember going to the Egghead store and purchasing my first internet browser, Mosaic for $39. Now, a dozen years later, Microsoft is releasing their latest and greatest – Internet Explore v9 for an ideal price of free.

Although the program is currently in beta, it is available to anyone who would like to test it out.

Although bigger, faster, better is always promised, I believe the big upgrade will be full support for HTML v5 an open standard for programming web pages. HTML 5 allows programmers to accomplish things they had only been able to do in the past using tools like Adobe Flash.

Check back here soon for updates on whether the upgrade is worth the installation.
