Microsoft Confirms: IE9 Final Version Coming March 14th

Are you ready for a "more beautiful web?" It's coming soon, according to Microsoft. The company who invented Internet Explorer is nearly ready to release the finalized version of IE9, and Microsoft has just officially announced that it will launch to consumers on March 14th. That's during SXSW, a festival in central Texas that's becoming more and more Internet-focused. March 14th marks the 1-year anniversary of the IE9 Platform Preview, and the browser has definitely matured in those 12 months. The download will be available starting at 9PM PT on the 14th, so set your clocks.

Will you be downloading the final release of IE9? Have you been using the beta? Are you a Firefox or Chrome convert who will soon be willing to give IE9 another try? Let us know!
