    smhandsMust be a slow day in news, rehashing old news again.

    03/14/11: Internet Explorer 9 is released.

    If only Microsoft would switch to 2-4 month regular update cycles like Google and Mozilla then perhaps there'd be a better competition. However i still use IE9 due to some websites not displaying properly with Chrome and FF.
