Internet Explorer 9

From first few hours of installing and using IE 9 beta. I feel that Microsoft have started stealing features from other favourite browsers like Chrome.

To list a few:

  1. All the tab windows run independent of the browser. This means one tab crashing does not crash the browser. Doesn’t that sound like chrome ??
  2. For a download it does not pop up a window instead a small tab on the bottom of the browser window prompts what to do with the download. Again so much chrome like.
  3. The installer downloads a small file and rest is done like Chrome does.

May be we can say that Microsoft is learning its lessons from others now. Whatever !!! they might be lacking in originality of an idea, however still they are the best, when it comes to user comfort.
