Top Features:

Hardware Acceleration Video

Without hardware acceleration, browsers only use about 10% of the processing power your PC has to offer. Internet Explorer 9 unlocks that other 90%. With Internet Explorer 9, we’re tapping into your graphics processor through Windows to harness the full potential of your PC. High-definition videos are smooth, graphics are clearer and more responsive, colors are truer, and websites are more interactive. Combined with our new JavaScript engine, the web now performs like an application installed directly on your computer.

Sites Respect Your Privacy
Tracking Protection helps you stay in control.

Some of the content, images, and ads that you see on websites are provided by third-party websites. While this content can be useful to both you and your favorite websites, it allows third-party websites to potentially track your behavior across multiple sites. Tracking Protection in Internet Explorer 9 provides an added level of control and choice about the information that third-party websites can potentially use to track your browsing activity.

To use this feature, simply go to the Settings menu (under the gear), select Safety and then Tracking Protection. Then enable your personalized list. Once you’ve enabled a Tracking Protection List, the settings apply to all the sites you browse to and are preserved each time you begin a new browsing session. Tracking Protection stays on until you decide to turn it off.

Sites Take Center Stage
More room for what you want to see.

Internet Explorer 9 features a simplified yet enhanced interface to put the focus on websites. The address bar and search bar have been combined into the One Box. Tabs stack along the very top. And the entire frame is significantly slimmer. Combined, this gives you much more room for the stuff you’re looking at online.

Sites Amaze
