Download Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview 7

Screams for more performance.

Although it’s been a mere three weeks since the last IE9 Platform Preview release, Microsoft has recently released a yet another build that is Platform Preview 7.

According to the IE Team, since the release of Internet Explorer 9 Beta, it has already generated more than 13 million downloads and proved to be a huge success.

As far as this release goes, Platform Preview 7 continues its bug fixing marathon and real world performance improvements. Therefore, SunSpider benchmark results have improved as well.

As always, no UI for you.

Firefox is #1 Again (SunSpider JS Benchmark)
