Internet Explorer 9 with HTML 5: JavaScript Benchmark Test

By Peter Chubb - Mar 17, 2010

Microsoft know that they need to do something with their IE browser following a number of setbacks with some of its older versions. The software giant has been working on Internet Explorer 9 and hopes to be able to regain its huge market share that it once had – before the likes of Firefox and new boy, Google Chrome started eating away at it.

Yesterday was the MIX10 Microsoft developer conference and gave the company a chance to show the preview code for IE9. The new browser has a number of goals that it needs to achieve to become relevant; these include HTML 5, improved speed, SVG (scalable vector graphics) amongst others.

Internet Explorer 9 still has a way to go yet, but this has not stopped PC Mag taking a closer look at the browser and giving it a JavaScript benchmark test. Microsoft knows that most computers now come with more than one CPU, so will take full advantage of this.
