As promised, Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 9 in its stable RTM form a year after releasing the first "platform preview" build. The browser managed to maintain the excitement among users during its several months of testing, which saw a public beta last September and the launch of the first Release Candidate in February, as it marks a clear departure from previous versions in terms of design, features, and browser-engine.

It also showed that the software giant is ready to step up the fight against rivals Firefox and Chrome, even though the stigma of being insecure and requiring a page full of hacks to display websites properly might still take some time shaking off in the minds of developers and those who have long abandoned the browser.
