Review

Internet Explorer 9 is an Internet browser, developed by Microsoft, which took user’s advice about previous versions to improve its functionality. In this IE edition, the developers have enhanced its capacities with HTML5, reproducing multimedia content smoothly, as well as improving other aspects, such as JavaScript processes and user protection while surfing the web.

With this version, Microsoft tries to move ahead in the so called Browsers Wars, with opponents such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Performance is an important aspect of browsers, and Internet Explorer 9 enhances the compatibility it had with HTML5 and the compilation of JavaScript snippets through their internal Chakra engine. Different tests show a clear increase in speed when processing several elements at the same time, thanks to its hardware-accelerated computing capacity.

On the other hand, Internet Explorer 9 has expanded its functions, and thanks to classic add-ons it provides downloads for free. Even though these elements are very useful, they lack for variety and you will find few add-ons on the official webpage. You can install other options, such as toolbars, if you want access more applications than just accelerators or other elements such as Bing Maps.

Safer and more complete

When you open IE9 for the first time, you will find that its user interface has changed, and it is much simpler. In this version it only shows one bar for both searching information on the web and visiting your favorite websites. The address bar is placed on the left, taking up only part of the space that is now shared with tabs you can open. The design is elegant, but its simplicity may turn off some users that have experience with more fancy programs.

Due to the growth in the malware menace, IE9 included new features for protecting users from external attacks. There is improved memory protection, including SEHOP, used to avoid buffer overflow exploits. This way the protection of your system won’t be compromised. It also includes a better SmartScreen function for protecting users against malicious webpages and general malware that you may download accidentally.

Another important aspect of Microsoft’s new browser is the InPrivate mode, now much more enhanced. This mode allows users to visit webpages without using cookies, temporal files or saving your personal data into the computer. This mode is perfect for using public PCs, as it won’t register your activity while you’re in session.
