There seem to be a lot of buzz about the recently “leaked” IE9 video. If you have yet to see it, check the video above.
What boggles my mind is the fact that quite a few tech sites consider it to be real and already discussing “how clean the UI is”. Seriously, people?
P.S. Boy oh boy, what if this video turns out to be a real thing and IE9 is actually that bad…
Although IE9 is yet to be released, it looks like software giant Microsoft has already began rolling ad campaign to promote upcoming web browser.
Recently, Opera Software has released an update for its Twitter widget called “Twiget”. New version introduces quite a few UI changes, new features (including: bit.ly integration) and bug fixes.
One of the cool things about Opera’s widgets is the fact that you can simply run them outside your browser window, just like any other app.
Thanks to Twitter’s new authorization API, signing in is as easy as 1, 2, 3: launch widget, paste PIN from a newly opened web browser window and that’s pretty much it.

With few major browser releases just around the corner, let’s find out how market share has changed over the past month.
After surprising 2 months market share increase in a row, this time Internet Explorer lost 0.34 of it, down from 60.74% to 60.40%.
Just as expected, Skyfire Team has submitted their mobile web browser into Apple’s App store and is awaiting approval.
If Apple approves the app, Skyfire would allow iPhone/iPad users to enjoy Flash content that is being transcoded into HTML5 via company servers.
According to press release, Skyfire Team followed Apple guidelines, including the use of a WebKit browser core shared with Safari, and h.264 adaptive streaming.
As Google Chrome 7 (dev) now includes hardware acceleration, guys from DownloadSquad decided to test it along with Internet Explorer 9 (developers preview) and Firefox 4 (beta).
What are the results?
Google Chrome 7 utilized the most of the hardware resources, delivering better FPS (frames per second) than Internet Explorer 9 or Firefox 4, which took the last place.
However, as those are not the final builds, don’t draw your conclusions yet, things might change in the future.
