In my opinion Microsoft is lagging behind competitors in the web browser market, therefore I am keen to see what they have in store for us with their next major web browser release, Internet Explorer 9.
A recent article posted on ZDNet may well give us our first-ever look at the upcoming web browser, the screenshot has not been confirmed as Internet Explorer 9, however looks like a refined and simplified version of IE8.
You can see the screenshot at the end of this post, the browser looks like a Microsoft version of Google Chrome, there are simple back, forward, homepage, favorites and settings buttons, along with an address bar and a Bing search box.
It is thought that Microsoft will reveal the official Internet Explorer 9 beta at an event in San Francisco in mid-September, so for now we will have to make do with the small and unconfirmed screen that we have embedded below.
Do you like the look of the screen below? Will Internet Explorer 9 be step in the right direction for Microsoft?
