Internet Explorer 9 to support HTML5

Rumours of Internet Explorer 9 started to surface a few months ago at PDC 2009 and now we’re seeing more evidence from Microsoft about what to expect…although not so much when!

There are 2 sessions running at Microsoft’s Mix 2010 event which are:

HTML5: The future of Web Markup Today

and

Future of Vector Graphics for the Web

It already seems there will be a new Javascript engine in IE9 as well as the GPU being used to render pages, and tabbed browsing will be improved.

It’s expected that a CTP (Community Technical Preview) of IE9 will be made available at the MIX 2010 conference which runs 15-17 March 2010…see more here.

More info can be found over on Neowin.
