Steven Sinofky, president of Microsoft's Windows and Windows Live division, revealed the new browser will take advantage of GPGPU computing to accelerate text and graphics rendering. He demonstrated this new feature in Bing Maps, enabling the feature boosted performance from around 14FPS to up to 60FPS.
The software giant also promises improved interoperability and standards support in IE9, including HTML 5 and CSS3 support.
