Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 coming to Windows Phone 7

31 Mar

Firefox really knocked the ball out of the park with its most recent release, out-downloading Internet Explorer 9 by quite an impressive – nay, obliterating margin. Still, that doesn’t mean Microsoft is going to let IE9 languish around like that, no sir – the company will be introducing the Internet Explorer 9 Web browser to Windows Phone 7 later this year, boasting full support for HTML5 video and graphics as well as hardware-assisted acceleration. Of course, users will also be able to benefit from its multitasking capability that lets you keep one app running while you start another. We do hope that it will run smooth enough when it arrives in the market, and hopefully there will be less security holes for unscrupulous folks to exploit than its desktop predecessors.
