Microsoft: IE9 Will Be Faster and Safer than Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari

IE9 is already more secure than its rivals

Internet Explorer 9 has yet to reach the Beta development stage, but Microsoft is already touting the next generation of IE as superior to its rivals. The Redmond company has obviously thrown down the gauntlet, and managed to take swings at all rivals during the recent Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) 2010. First, Kevin Turner, Microsoft Chief Operating Officer, revealed that in the software giant’s view Windows 7 is superior to all platforms on the market including Mac OS X and Linux. But Turner also noted that the upcoming iteration of IE9 will be faster and safer than Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari.

At the same time, he noted that Internet Explorer 8 is already the safest browser on the web today. Of course, as was the case with Windows, Turner did not mention IE’s rivals specifically. Still, it’s nothing short of evident what Microsoft COO meant.

“IE9 is going to be not only the most safest and secure browser in the market, which IE8 is today, it will be the fastest browser in the market. You saw some demos of that on day one. It's a smoking hot browser product,” Turner said. (emphasis added)
