Finally, Two years after IE8 was revealed, Microsoft will release the final version of Internet Explorer 9.0 during the South by Southwest Interactive Festival. For most of the world, that means it won’t be available until March 15.

Most of us have experienced the beta or release candidate versions of IE9 so there are unlikely to be any major surprises.

Although in tests it’s reported to have small minor problems mainly to do with Adobe flash and JavaScript, reports of videos just going blank but with sound, hopefully this will be fixed before the big release. Also reads sites slightly different and has affected many sites including AOL Mail. But whatever your opinion of Internet Explorer, it remains the world’s most-used browser.

But this status can easily change because of the increasing popularity of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox latest releases. So this new IE will have to work harder to keep its loyal users.
