Internet Explorer 9 looks like its on the road to redeem what Internet Explorer 8 messed up.

Despite negative feedbacks from consumers in Twitter (several of them are probably Chrome and Firefox cultists), the Internet Explorer 9 has been downloaded 2.35 million times in its first 24 hours after the Monday night release. The numbers average over 27 downloads per second or 270 downloads every 10 seconds. The figure is double the 1 million downloads IE9 Beta received and four times more than that of the IE9 RC within the same time frame.

A Mission Only for Google Chrome: Kill the URL Bar

Written on February 21, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

There's no job too small or too large for the Google Chrome as it plans to eliminate another element in the grand scheme we call a web browser: the URL bar.

Google Chrome seems to be on its way to destroy the URL Bar. Yes, that bar where you type in the web address of the site you want to go to. Is it possible? To Google, ANYTHING is. But there’s still the question as to why they want to do it.

“Less is more,” that seems to be the trend these days in everything we do and also in web browsers as it allows the world to glide through the web with speed and ease. The Google Chrome surprisingly trails behind the Internet Explorer 9 in terms of application and viewable web. But Google is right on the case as they’re currently studying ways of making web surfing a much simpler experience, and they’ve got their eyes in killing the URL bar in their “compact navigation” model.

Microsoft is introducing a new feature - Tracking Protection - to Internet Explorer (IE) 9. Can users really be able to control what can track them online? Or is it just an ad blocker in disguise?

According to Microsoft officials, Big Red is introducing a new feature called Tracking Protection to Internet Explorer 9. The new feature will be part of the Release Candidate test build for IE 9, which is due early next year. The Tracking Protection will be an opt-in mechanism, and will enable users to control what third-party site content can track them whenever online.

A Minimalist Internet Explorer 9 That Reminds You of Chrome

Written on August 26, 2010 by Aiken Lewis

At the dawn of the ninth Explorer's season, a sneak peek flashed from the Russian Microsoft website of the look that rendered the browser a makeover, the Chrome way.

A screenshot posted on the site spilled Internet Explorer 9’s interface secret–Google’s Web browser features adopted into its beta version. Some might say Microsoft “aped” Chrome’s minimalist aesthetic, and it is a worthy opponent to emulate, to begin with.

Microsoft’s work seems to have been focused on trimming menus and buttons that are rather crowding the window. Shortcut icons for e-mailing, printing and RSS are obviously plucked, together with the “Page,” “Safety,” and “Tools” buttons. Taking littler space then in the current version are the reload and stop-loading buttons, and Bookmarks are gone. Where could all have these snippets gone?

With their absence from the main window, or transfer to other menus, the screen now looks much tidier and roomy enough to display webpages–the browser’s purpose in the first place.

The screenshot has been pulled since speculations arose, but all of these will be snipped as well when the IE9 beta rolls out on September 15.
