Internet Explorer 9: THE STORY UPTIL NOW
Microsoft could regain the edge over rivals Google and Mozilla Firefox with its new Web browser due to be launched next year. IE9 is months from release, but already it holds the potential to alter the browser market. Not only could it reinvigorate competition with a host of new rivals, it could help usher in the cloud computing era that some of those rivals are eager to embrace. In that era, the Web transforms from a foundation for static documents and Web sites into a foundation for interactive programs.
With IE9, though, Microsoft is trying to rebuild the browser for the Web that’s to come through new standards such as HTML5 and CSS3, updates to Hypertext Markup Language for describing Web pages and Cascading Style Sheets for formatting.
1st developer preview of IE9 was launched on March 16, 2010.
May 5 2010: 2nd developer preview of IE9 released.
The new preview offers a higher ACID 3 test score, 68 out of 100, and there’s a 117-millisecond improvement in speed according to Webkit.org’s SunSpider benchmark tests. Microsoft didn’t provide exact numbers for context.

Alternatively, I suggest this interesting firefox-based solution, specifically optimized for current processors:

I'll be glad to get rid of IE8, I liked IE7 alot better but I stick faithfully with using IE. As far as Firefox the only thing I ever liked that Firefox had was the inbuilt Download Manager. The preview build of IE9 looks promising as a very nice browser, as long as it works better than IE8 I'll continue to keep faithfully using IE
