Microsoft just released the Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate after quite a long time since the release of the beta version of MSIE9. There are some changes to the interface of MSIE9RC too beside some back end technical issues. Microsoft is getting a very tough time in browser industry because of their biggest competitor Mozilla Firefox and now to come extend Google Chrome.
Even after the launch of IE9 Beta by Microsoft, still the market trend of IE is falling greatly every month. Last year in September IE held the market with about 60% users, whereas this year it has dropped below 50%. IE8 was pretty good, but the new IE9 Beta is extremely better than the last one. Microsoft is trying to get back into the market with their new IE9.
Microsoft started offering other Internet Browsers than their own Internet Explorer in the current update for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 in Europe. This is quite amazing, that even after making MSIE 8.0, Microsoft is losing their market in the Internet Browsers industry. Mozilla Firefox and then Google Chrome took over the browser market and I can see the downfall graphs of Internet Explorer.
