    IE really needs the help of a graphics card to do these movements! LOL

      Not only IE, whole graphics applications in this world needs help of a graphics card to display runtime complex graphics.
      In browser world, Opera already does – IE ,FireFox & Chrome are working on these.
      Leveraging the local graphics card power would make the web move to next level for rich media sevices like 3D games, Office Application online,..etc.
      This is natural evolution for browsers.

    Yeah, nice try, and well done at throwing money away. First off, if you say “the way internet is gonna be in the future” is dependent on hardware and a specific browser, then you are a complete moron.

    There is a reason why everyone wants standards.

    There is a reason why cellphone internet access is on the rise.

    There is also a reason why Windows is loosing marketshare, and IE along with it.

    This is just not going to work. It’s cool, but it’s a waste of money.

    “You disabled the heavy aero graphical interface from the ION computer but not from the traditionnal computer. This comparison is not fair at all”
    Nvidia is learning marketing strategies from Apple.

    IE i(no matter what version)is a sorry excuse for a browser that holds the internet advancement back. Microsoft should make the code open source so that more competent coders can look at it. Its not their main line of business anyway.Their current release cycles are poor and the patching rate of security holes are scandalous.

    • RamaSubbu SK

      I agree, Old IE holds the internet advancement in because it lacks lot of standards. But I don’t how making the code open source would solve this. Open source development might solve a bit by attracting more developers which will get you to implement all the standards out there quickly. If you also notice that last two IE patch releases are well advice and they didn’t wait for regular security update cycle.
      Sorry, I don’t buy your argument.
