Microsoft Asks Enterprise Customers to Wait Until Final Release of IE9
Published on Sep 23, 2010

Microsoft is asking enterprise customers to wait until a final version of Internet Explorer 9 is available before adopting the browser on business PCs.

“Until the final code of Internet Explorer 9 is released to the Web (RTW), we recommend businesses first move to Windows 7 Enterprise with Internet Explorer 8,” said Rich Reynolds, Microsoft’s general manager for Windows Commercial Product Marketing, in a blog post Wednesday. Doing so, said Reynolds, would allow them to “immediately benefit from the enhanced security, manageability, Web standardization, and lifecycle support that Internet Explorer 8 brings to enterprise browsing today.”

Microsoft released the beta version of Explorer 9 last week, but has yet to commit to a launch date for the final version. The company is counting heavily on Internet Explorer 9 to maintain its majority share in the browser wars, which has been eroding steadily in recent years amid new competition from Apple Safari and Google Chrome.

Advanced features on IE9 include full HTML 5 support, faster JavaScript, a tool that lets users “pin” their favorite sites directly to the Windows 7 taskbar, and a cleaner interface designed to highlight Web pages as opposed to the browser itself.

“The Web is about sites, and your browser should be too,” said Dean Hachamovitch, Microsoft’s corporate VP for Internet Explorer, in a statement last week. “When we designed the IE9 interface, we wanted the frame to say, ‘Look at the site, not the browser,'” said Hachamovitch.
