Internet Explorer 9 Beta: Closing the Gap on Chrome / Firefox

By Updated on

A few weeks ago we posted what we beleived was the first-ever public screenshot of Microsoft Internet Explorer 9, now we have a brief video showing the browser’s score when running the Acid3 benchmark.

For those of you who don’t know Acid3 is benchmarking website which test’s a web browser’s performance, especially in regards to the Document Object Model (DOM) and JavaScript.

The latest builds of web browsers such as Google Chrome and Apple Safari score 100/100 in the Acid3 test, whereas the latest build of Mozilla scores 97, therefore any score near this is pretty decent.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 scored just 20/100 in the test, however the video embedded belows shows latest Internet Explorer 9 scores 95 out of 100, this shows that Microsoft have really revamped things.

Back in March this year IE9 scored 55/100, in May it scored 68 and in June it scored 83/100, now that it has reached 95/100 it shows that Microsoft has been working hard to make Internet Explorer 9 the browser that IE8 should have been.
