At next month's Tech.Ed India 2011 from March 23rd-25th, Microsoft’s general manager of Windows Live and Internet Explorer, Brian Hall, will be giving a keynote speech on the 24th. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer could have its formal introduction there as Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer recently stated in February that IE9 is expected within the next month and that “it will be the best browser…that you’ve ever used” and a “great piece of work.”
Google is working on a new interface for its Chrome browser. Some changes they are considering may include replacing the address bar with something less intrusive such as a vanishing address bar that only shows up when you hover over a certain area.
Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9 is looking promising and today they just unleashed the RC (release candidate) version for all to download. This RC build is considered feature complete meaning that it pretty much resembles the final release except for some additional bug fixes. This release includes a customizable Tracking Protection feature, a more streamlined interface, and overall improved performance.
CanSecWest, the world’s leading conference in applied digital security, will be hosting the Pwn2Own contest pitting security researchers and exploit writers against popular web browsers and mobile devices. As part of that, Google is offering a $20,000 cash prize to any hacker who can successfully compromise a Windows 7 machine via Google’s Chrome web browser.
