Internet Explorer will not support Windows XP

Following on from our previous post, in which Microsoft announced details regarding HTML5 support within their new Internet Explorer 9 browser, it has also been confirmed that the browser will not have support for Windows XP.

As reported from Geeky-Gadgets, other features aside from HTML5 within IE9, include the likes of CSS3 support, 2D graphics acceleration, h.264 video playback and a brand new Javascript engine.

The question is though: Will Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 do enough to compete with the likes of Firefox, Chrome and Opera 10.5 (the fastest available apparently)?

It seems like a sneaky way to get users to upgrade to Windows 7 doesnt it? Let us know your thoughts on this.
