Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate (RC) to be released on Jan 28

Microsoft is planning to reveal its near-final version of Internet Explorer 9 on January 28.
Microsoft officials have been hard at work on the company’s next generation browser since its release in September 2010.

LiveSide suggests that the software giant is planning to unveil the Release Candidate (RC) build to the public on January 28.

Microsoft earlier announced that the beta version of Internet Explorer 9 has surpassed 20 million downloads, making it the most downloaded beta release of Internet Explorer ever.

The download rate of Internet Explorer 9 beta has grown by 5 million each month since its release on September 15, 2010. Internet Explorer 9 RC is expected to include UI tweaks and minor changes to some functions in Internet Explorer. Microsoft will also introduce a new Tracking protection feature in Internet Explorer 9 RC that will allow consumers to address their concerns about being tracked on the web.

Microsoft has targeted developers in a heavy way with Internet Explorer 9. IE 9 takes advantage of the power of the GPU for all page rendering and developers can exploit this using CSS, DHTML and javascript. A new JS engine (codenamed Chakra) is also built into Internet Explorer 9 with greater interoperability and standards support all round. Features such as rounded corner CSS support are now built in.

Microsoft’s IE9 is the first and only browser to deliver full hardware acceleration of all HTML5 content.

Other competitors, including Mozilla and Google, are planning select hardware acceleration but at the moment Internet Explorer 9 leads the pack.
