Internet Explorer 9.0.1: Microsoft Revises IE Version Numbering

Today, Microsoft has released the June 2011 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer, which fixes a total of 7 security vulnerabilities for IE6-9.

However, what is more interesting is this:

If users install the following update, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 will now show the version number of 9.0.1, instead of just IE9, which was always the case for the company.

Although user agent remains the same, it’s a very welcomed step nonetheless.

    Yes. Now, it wouldn’t make it look like IE is only updated after months (i.e. period between IE7 and IE8, etc.) :P
