In rather pointless benchmark, DownloadSquad has tested latest Internet Explorer 9 build against Google Chrome 6 dev.
What are the results?
As seen in video above, IE9 annihilated Chrome. However, while it does sound great, author failed to mention that Google Chrome 6 does not really support hardware acceleration (still in early development stage). Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
It appears that rumors about the upcoming IE9 Platform Preview 3 release were true, as it is now available for developers and early adopters to download it.
Besides various performance improvements, this build introduces HTML5 canvas element (audio, video tags and 2D graphics) that is hardware accelerated, plus WOFF (Web Open Font Format) standard support.
You may download IE9 Platform Preview 3 from the following page.
Although Microsoft has yet to confirm IE9 Platform Preview 3 release, according to Softpedia, company might be releasing such build for developers and early adopters later today.
While changes remain unknown, we expect further performance and web standards improvements, as well as other enhancements.

Now here is something to freshen things up. A collection of artistic web browser (Firefox and Internet Explorer) photos/digital art, or just old “Internet Explorer vs. Firefox” argument, to be exact.
Now here is an interesting one. TaerkEX, a member of DeviantART has created a simple APNG (Animated PNG) animation.
What’s so great about that?
Well, picture contains two frames. Therefore, if your browser does not support APNG, you should only see the very first one.
