IE9 Preview Platform

Internet Explorer has just released a preview of ie9. Very good to see a few more standards being used (and sometimes abused) by the evil stepmother of the Web! Now the canvas element, border-radius, and svg can begin to move forward in a less javascript dependant way (in supported browsers). Of course, you need js for svg and canvas anyway, so there is not much great here. And really, noone’s jobs will be any easier as a result — not for a good long time (because ie9 requires vista or 7). But still the preview is fun to play with, and will maybe help to move along further standardization and implementation of CSS3 and XHTML5. Maybe.
