Microsoft’s latest foray into the world of HTML5-compliant browsers got off to an energetic start yesterday with the release of Internet Explorer 9’s release candidate (RC).

Internet Explorer 9 attempts to cut back much of the dead wood featured in previous releases. Critics will be delighted to know that the crippled JavaScript engine and cluttered user interface have gone to make room for a much prettier, cleaner and (dare I say it) Apple-esque appearance.

Inspiration has clearly been taken from rival products, such as Google Chrome and its snappy one-stop address bar. Internet Explorer 9’s address bar will function similarly to Chrome’s (albeit without instant search results).

Microsoft have also spent some time improving on IE8’s oft-forgotten excellent security record.

There’s way too many changes, improvements and tweaks to fit into a news story. You can get the full low-down now at DownloadSquad. They have done an excellent review of the release.
