It’s been one week since a few of us from the Internet Explorer team were down in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011. While we spent much of our time demonstrating the IE9 beta to CES attendees, industry analysts, and press, we had the chance to get out of the booth and talk to some of the sites and companies building some interesting innovations using IE9.
Ziad Ismail previously blogged about Huffington Post and Gilt Groupe and why they are great web experiences that put sites at the center. Today I wanted to focus on two of our hardware partners: AMD and Nvidia.
AMD announced their new Fusion line of Accelerated Processing Units (or APUs) as we detailed in another post (check out the small size of the chip in the video!). At CES, Gabe Gravning from the AMD team walked us through how they used IE9 in their booth to demonstrate the power of Fusion.
Nvidia showed off some impressive graphics power at their booth as well. Besides showing some incredible 3-D gaming, and their one-of-a-kind “keg-puter”, Nvidia used IE9 to show off some of their new graphics chips. Dave Ragones from the Nvidia team gave us a demo.
It was exciting to see something like a browser popping up in these other booths as a way to demonstrate the power of hardware. With full hardware acceleration, IE9 is a great way to showcase the next gen web applications that will get great performance on tomorrow’s web! Download the Internet Explorer 9 beta now to give it a try.
This is cute and all, but is there a way to completely uninstall IE from Windows 7? I've been using the 9 Beta but I need to get rid of the browser all together. Sorry, but it's incapable of deleting browser history amongs many other things. I set it to 0 days to keep history and delete it, but if I click on the Adress bar pop-down it's ALL STLL THERE - even stuff from months ago. I've been clickign delete on individual items for like an hour now. This browser is not usable if you guys cannot figure out how to make such simple things work correctly.
So how do I completely uninstall Internet Explorer off my computer. I want to start using an alternate browser full-time and I simply don't trust this piece of software.
*SIGHS* Even stuff from InPrivate Browsing shows up in the normal IE history in the Address Bar Drop-Down. This has to be one of the dumbest oversites I've ever witnessed. This has got to go.
@Nater, sorry to hear you are having problems with deleting the browser history. Here's a thread on answers.microsoft.com that might help: social.answers.microsoft.com/.../82d0524e-fc13-4027-84b2-d5a3d47c6a21
Per that thread, you may want to try: Click the Start button>Control Panel>System And Maintenance>Indexing Options, Click on Internet Explorer History, Click ADVANCED, Click RESTORE DEFAULTS.
If you wish to uninstall IE9 Beta, you can go to Windows Update>Update History>Installed Updates and uninstall from there.
@Nater, it's beta for a reason. If you can't put up with some minor bugs you have no excuse to be using it. I dislike IE for my own reasons, but the simple bug you are experiencing does not make the browser worthless. Furthermore, there's no need to uninstall IE to use another browser. If you're not good enough with computers to be able to do this, you shouldn't be doing it. On top of this, your comment is almost entirely unrelated to the article, which suggests to me that this is just a stage for you to advance your own personal agenda.
Perhaps I'm being harsh, but I can't stand this sort of trolling against any browser. Even Internet Explorer.
