Microsoft launches Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview 2

Microsoft has released the second platform preview edition of their upcoming web browser edition Internet Explorer 9.

This is probably the first time that Microsoft is releasing builds of Internet Explorer 9 as it is being developed. Opera and Mozilla already does so.

The second release is pretty much similar to the first one with no major changes in user interface. All the updates are in the engine powering the browser.

It is not designed to be used as a regular browser as the user interface lacks pretty much everything.

Microsoft stated that they are working on improving the performance of various engines powering the browser (JavaScript and so on). They are also improving the scores on Acid3 tests.
