Browser Comparison - Mozilla Firefox Vs Internet Explorer

IE version 9 was officially launched on 15th September 2010 with a lot of promising features and a magnitude of reengineering to give a posthaste, elegant, score, never before web experience. You can download IE9 Beta from the official website Beautyoftheweb

Web browsing or internet browsing constitutes almost over 80% of usage for a PC / Laptop users. calm it is one of the most compromised areas too. Browser crashes and slower loading time of graphic web pages are going to be things of the past with the latest IE in action. One of the most striking feature of IE 9 is that it puts drawl first. The mask place for the website is increased and browser controls reduced. So how does the experience bag better?

1. Hardware acceleration: With the exercise of Microsoft DirectX technology in this browser, premium quality graphics will be displayed at ease.

2. HTML 5: Now appreciate Adobe Flash and Microsoft SilverLight without any need for plugins - thanks to HTML 5 supportable IE 9

3. JScript engine: The javascript engine ragged in IE9 is "Chakra" which compiles scripts on the flee that the running time is reduced

4. SVG: With SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) incorporated in IE9, the images and charts and maps will no more be pixilated in browser.

IE 9 has some very frosty features over its previous version.

Single search/URL bar: With the unified search and URL bar, the browser has more plot to demonstrate the page contents using lesser residence for browser tools.

Pin websites to taskbar: If you liked the feature in windows 7 that allowed you to pin the frequently veteran applications to the taskbar, then you are going to cherish this unique feature in IE9. You can now pin a website like an application to the task bar. Voila, you net to browser your accepted location objective by a single click. Whats more, if the residence had configured meta tags for jump list, you'll explore them upon moral clicking on the pinned icon.

lustrous Security: The IE9 is smarter in identifying and memorizing your regular download types.The built-in download manager doesn't pop up annoying warning for your most current types of downloads (like winamp) unlike the smartscreen filters in the previous IE versions.

amble off/Aero Snap tabs: Well, this is not unusual if you had experience with Firefox 4. I belief this was one feature that IE was missing with respect to tabbed browsing and now that's there too!

Add-on Advisor: I'd say this is the smartest thing in IE9. It tells you when an add-on is slowing down the browser performance and gives an option to end fair the add-on. So no more browser crashes! One might argue that this is not something novel as Chrome already has tackled this browser smash dilemma. Yes, but at the cost of tremendous memory usage (chrome uses different processes for each of the plug-ins/add-ons)

With respect to performance, security, ease of employ and web standards and Development tools, IE9 beats the other two competitors hands down. I tried IE9 last week and since then my other browsers lay forgotten. I gather the experience handsome indeed!
