• Leaked IE9 Screenshots: Download Manager, Speed Dial
Earlier this week, Microsoft has confirmed Internet Explorer 9 Public Beta launch for September.
Just recently Google has introduced their new Chrome release cycle. According to it, new stable browser versions will now be available every 6 weeks. Therefore, major version numbers will be changing much faster.
There are three reasons for such change, company said:

Make the schedule more predictable and easier to scope
Reduce the pressure on engineering to “make” a release
What do you think about release cycle shift? Still excited about Google Chrome 10?
