Microsoft released Internet Explorer 9 preview #2, touting the improvements made over the previous releases. Microsoft states that “today’s release builds on the first Platform Preview, delivering improvements to IE9’s performance, support for standards, and hardware acceleration of HTML5…As part of our commitment to enabling developers to use the Same Markup – the same HTML, CSS, and script – on the web, we've contributed many new tests to W3C for HTML5, as well as CSS3 Media Queries and DOM. The Developer Tools in this preview include some new features to make finding and fixing markup issues easier,” writes IE team blog. Microsoft also showed off some of the browsers capabilities by running the Acid 3 test and the Webkit Sunspider test (JavaScript) results.
