IE9 Beta Available for Download

Microsoft has opened up the beta version of Internet Explorer 9 for public download today, and it’s gotten pretty favorable marks from Wired and ComputerWorld for its speed and its stripped-down aesthetic. If you’d care to test it out, here’s the link:

Note that it won’t work on Windows XP, but is currently only available for Windows Vista and Windows 7.

More explanation from Microsoft is available at this page, which includes required specs and FAQ questions. Warning: That “Video: Basics of the beta” link is a .wmv for some reason.
