IE 9 Ripens on the Vine

IE 9 has been parceled out in early test versions for some time, and now there is what's called the fourth "platform preview" available. Like previous previews, this edition isn't yet quite a browser, as it doesn't include an address bar or a key way to navigate around the Web. So what is it good for? Testing performance and compatibility of custom apps -- that's what.

For those that really want to see the new browser in action, the first beta, with real browser features, is the very next step.

Our online news editor Kurt Mackie is a bit of an IE 9 guru and he shares more details here.
