It used to be easy for a browser maker: add your own features and developers will write code targeted to your browser. Things aren’t so simple anymore. Proprietary enhancements led to chaos, confusion, and incompatibility.
Proprietary features are out. Standards compliance is in. But in a world of web standards, what value can a browser maker add to stand apart? Microsoft’s answer to this problem: speed!
In this sponsored talk, Frank La Vigne will demonstrate how Internet Explorer 9 leverages Microsoft’s deep expertise in the underlying Windows platform to provide hardware acceleration for rich media and more powerful scripting, all while maintaining HTML5 standards compliance.
The bottom line is that your HTML5 sites and apps run faster on IE9, leaving you free to dream up bigger and bolder solutions for the web.
