Let’s take a look at the benchmark results.
Here we go with the second test:
In this second test we are evaluating the flying images test proposed by Microsoft. The most important value to consider is the frames per second, and Internet Explorer 9 beta has obtained the best result of 60 fps. The other browsers are Safari 5 with 5 fps (the worst one), Firefox (9 fps), Opera (21 fps) and, Chrome (23 fps). Same results obtained with 100 and 256 images.
Finally, we’re running the well-known Acid3 test.
Concluding, even if IE9 is still a step behind Chrome or Firefox 4 we can really appreciate these results, considering that this is still a beta. There might be more improvements and progress in IE9’s final version. What do you think?
