Download: Announcing Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 final version General Availability

Yesterday, at an event at the SXSW Interactive (SXSWi) conference, Microsoft announced the launch of the latest iteration of the world’s most-used and secure browser Windows Internet Explorer 9 in 40 languages and its available for download at the Microsoft Download Centre.

The new version of Internet Explorer includes several new features and takes advantage of the power of modern Windows PC hardware to improve all-around Web browsing performance.

Microsoft highlights five key tips when using IE9:

Keep your browser current: Download IE9 here. Your Internet browser is the first line of defense against all online attacks. Research data from NSS Labs shows that IE9 blocks 99 per cent of all socially generated malware attacks – much higher than any other browser.

Browse on the fast lane: IE9 is designed to ensure that the browser starts fast and stays fast over time. Add-ons Advisor identifies programs that may be slowing down the browser and gives you the information you need to disable or fix it, directly from the Notification Bar itself.

Stay safe: The ‘SmartScreen Filter’ in IE9 protects your computer better by warning you when you attempt to view sites or download files that are potentially unsafe. IE9 also introduces the new SmartScreen Download Reputation filter that uses a website’s reputation data to remove unnecessary warnings for well-known files, and show more severe warnings when the download is a higher risk of being malicious.

Don’t leave an online trail behind: With the new Tracking Protection feature, IE9 provides you with an added level of control and choice about the information that you reveal about your online activities.

Make your online browsing a breeze: IE9 comes packed with nifty shortcuts that take you to your online destination faster. For example, the Pinned Sites feature allows you to pin the websites you access most often directly to the taskbar on your desktop. You can now get there with just one click!

IE9 is the only browser with fully hardware-accelerated HTML5, which harnesses the power of the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), unlocking 90 per cent of the PC’s power that went previously untapped by Web browsers.
