It's only in beta but already the speed and capabilities of MS's new browser are impressing the testers.

It's a great news!

As an end user (or consumer), don't we all love competitions between companies (brands)?

Absolutely, Antony. I'm all for a new and improved IE9 and for the resulting competition.

A website called Download Squad claims the opposite, saying the latest Firefox preview builds are
faster than IE9 Platform Preview, Opera 10.60 and Chrome 6 beta builds which came dead last.

As it stands at the moment, and especially while the next versions of IE and Firefox aren't even in
beta yet, I won't fully trust any of these tests as 100% gospel until the next versions of all 4 main
browser are well into beta testing phase. Only Opera 10.6 has reached this stage so far.

SeaMonkey = Swiss Army Knife: It's versatile, reliable, and contains useful tools.
Windows Internet Explorer = Old Swiss Cheese: Full of holes, and it stinks!
