Browsers Get a Face-Lift - WSJ.com

IE9 beta expected today

In an interview, Dean Hachamovitch, the Microsoft corporate vice president in charge of Internet Explorer, says the company's new browser, also known as IE9, is the first program to use "the whole PC to browse" the Web and will lead to sites reimagining how they're designed. Microsoft has worked with Amazon.com Inc. on a demonstration site that lets consumers search for books on a given topic, quickly populating a virtual bookshelf with images of book covers.

"It's very different than getting a bunch of links back," Mr. Hachamovitch said.
