IE 9 Final Version

Finally Microsoft launched the final version of browser IE 9. As a designer, i’m very happy to see that finally we can adopt native SVG, canvas, offline storage, geolocation, audio, video and CSS3 rounded corners with the browser. (Too bad it’s still no support text-shadow -_-)

New Features in IE9

Pinning tabs: Microsoft has introduced a couple completely new browser features. Taking Google’s tab-freedom to the next level, IE9 now lets users pin tabs and bookmarks to the Windows 7 taskbar. For those who visit Gmail, Facebook, or another site every day, this feature will be quite useful.

Tabs can instant resize: This is a difficult feature to describe. In Chrome and Firefox, if you drag a tab out of a window, it will become its own window when you let go of the mouse. After that, you can drag it to the top or left/right edge to automatically resize it to fit half or all of the screen (in Windows 7). IE9 eliminates one of these steps. You can now yank a tab out of a window and drag it directly to the top or left sections of the screen to resize it. It becomes its own window automatically.

Mousing over windows in the taskbar: When you mouse over the IE9 icon on your taskbar, instead of showing every open window (which could each have tons of tabs in them), Internet Explorer 9 will let you instantly view a preview of every open tab. If you have dozens of tabs open, this feature may get annoying, but for most users, it should be very helpful.

Downloads and Extensions: In addition to new tabbing features, IE9 also has a revamped downloads section and an extension manager that tells you exactly how much speed you are giving up by installing that extra toolbar.

Notifications: Finally, instead of opening up a drop-down above your Webpage like previous versions of IE, Mozilla, and Chrome, Internet Explorer 9 opts to bother you even less. Notifications pop up on the bottom. We’re not sure if this is a good thing or not. While we don’t like being bugged by password saving notifications, many times we didn’t “notice” these bottom feeding notifications at all.

Conclusion

IE9 is heading in the right direction. Hope Microsoft will continue to extend the feature set with frequent updates and most important thing is to do something on other versions of IE – Abandon them! ^-^
