An Early Look At IE9 for Developers

If you are one of the lucky few to be attending PDC in Los Angeles, CA this week, you probably got a sneak peak at Internet Explorer 9.  On Wednesday, the IE team showed off IE9 performance and standards compliance. 

They provide some interesting data points (and charts) on performance across browser platforms.  Interestingly enough, they show that their score on the Acid3 Test, a test widely known to test for compliance in, was a meek 32 out of 100.  We’ll assume that is when tested against IE8.

You can read more from the IE team on this topic here.

    The 32/100 is with _very_ early IE9 bits. This is an increase from IE8’s 20/100 already.
