Microsoft launched the Release to Market version of Internet Explorer 9 today at the South by SouthWest (SXSW) event in Austin, Texas. Microsoft launched the beta version of IE9 last year and received generally positive reviews and 40 million downloads.
“A fully hardware-accelerated browser, taking advantage of Windows and the latest in PC hardware innovations…means the Web as we know it is about to change,” Ryan Gavin, senior director of Internet Explorer said in a statement on Monday. “GPU-powered HTML5 in Internet Explorer 9 with AMD Fusion chip technology means Web developers have the ability to create fast, immersive and increasingly beautiful Web experiences.”
The browser will be available in 39 languages across the globe, and can be downloaded at Beautyoftheweb.com.
