Hope you all have installed the release candidate of Internet Explorer 9 and enjoying the slim and sleek internet explorer. Microsoft has finally revamped its latest version of IE to capture back the users who migrated to Google Chrome and Firefox!
But there are many other facts which made IE to loose its market share gradually to Chrome, Firefox and some to Opera as well.
When Google entered browser war, all the existing browsers were busy adding stuffs to their menu bar and were trying to make a huge list of features under main menu!
Well Google made is so simple by adding all of them under one setting button and gave more space to display webpages.! And now all the browsers have copied that feature and allowing more space for browsing 😛
We gave this example just to show how Google changed browsing world with its beautiful Chrome browser 🙂
Not only this, Firefox had kept copying many features from Chrome in its latest trunk as well!
Microsoft was always missing some important features and took time in adding them. Just like Firefox, even Microsoft revamped IE9 to look alike Chrome browser.
Well the most annoying feature of Internet Explorer is, whenever new update is available user had to download it to local system and then install it!
After installing as similar to other MS updates, user should restart their system! BANG! Chrome takes upper hand here!
To over come this, MS has finally planned to add a new feature to IE9 i.e. Automatic Update!
Dean Hachamovitch, Corporate Vice President, Internet Explorer reveled this information in his latest article about IE9,
We appreciate the work that developers and IT professionals will do to test their sites and prepare for the final release that will come shortly. We will automatically update IE9 beta users to the IE9 RC. After the final release, we will automatically update IE9 RC users to the final build.
That’s a good move by IE9 development team! Hope IE9 will come back strongly to browser war.
According to Net Application, since the public Beta was launched in mid-September 2010, Internet Explorer 9 was already downloaded over 25 million times.
As far now, IE9 has performed very good and promises to keep continuing it after the final release as well.
