It was the general perception until Internet Explorer 9 betas didn’t arrive the general public. Microsoft made big improvements with the 9th iteration of what is still world’ s most popular browser. This improvements included support for HTML 5, overall better web standards compliance, better performance, support for hardware rendering and a better focus on the privacy and security aspects of the users. There is no wonder that Internet Explorer was received much more positively by the casual users and experts alike.

Since it is still in beta we can expect more user jump to the bandwagon as the it reach the RC build and ultimately moves towards the final release.
