Yesterday at Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference, the company announced that three weeks ago (which works out at about a week after Windows 7 hit shelves), the Internet Explorer team started work on Internet Explorer 9.
Sinofsky went on to say that the team plan to make use of DirectX-based hardware accelerated graphics and text in IE9. Sinofsky showed that IE8 can render Bing maps at 14 frames per second. With hardware acceleration in IE9 turned on, he got 60 frames per second.
