There is more choice than ever when it comes to browsers today. This is a fantastic thing and we believe that choice makes the web better for all of us.
We build IE for customers who use Windows. IE9 is the browser designed to give Windows 7 customers the fastest, safest, and most private browsing experience – putting the focus on the thing that matters most – your favorite sites.
If you haven’t had a look at IE recently and are ready for change, here are some reasons we think IE9 might be the browser for you.
1. Browse without being browsed. If keeping your personal information private online is important to you, Internet Explorer is the browser that respects your privacy and puts you in charge. By using Tracking Protection and the other privacy features in IE9, you are in control of who is tracking your actions online – not advertisers.
2. Experience the Web, faster. When you browse with Internet Explorer 9, your favorite sites load crazy fast – faster than two other well-known browsers according to recent real world site performance tests from Laptop magazine and Strangeloop web development firm. As we have said before, we believe real world scenarios around page load times are the right way to measure how you experience a faster Web while you browse.
3. Your favorite sites just one-click away. IE9’s site pinning allows you to put your favorite sites directly on your Windows 7 taskbar with one-click access and live updates. Tweets, friends and family status updates, stocks, sports and weather can now live on your taskbar, giving you a front row seat to the information you care about most.
4. Browse worry free. If you are concerned about your safety online, IE9 protects you from the threats faced on the web today – better than any other browser. Whether it’s dangerous downloads, phishing websites or harmful links, IE9 makes sure you stay safe.
5. A more beautiful Web: With IE9’s support for HTML5 and industry-leading hardware acceleration, we are helping developers to push the limits of what is possible on the web today. Whether it is the addictive gameplay of Cut the Rope or a truly immersive way for music fans to enjoy the band they love, we give developers a platform to push the limits of what was previously thought possible and push their creativity.
Try IE9 out for yourself and start experiencing the safest, fastest and most reliable way to browse the Web on Windows.
