At the Mix10 conference, Microsoft unveiled a preview of Internet Explorer 9. The most notable change to the browser is greater support for HTML5, which could make it easier to create Web apps that work across multiple browsers.
“We love HTML 5 so much, we want it to actually work and in IE9, it will. We want the same script and same markup to work across browsers. And at the same time we want to be responsible about standards,” said Microsoft’s Dean Hachamovitch. “We set out to support every standard we saw in real world data in IE9.”
