Here, also mention that favorites bar & toolbars are not visible by default. If the user wants to, they can hit Alt > View > Toolbars and enable them.There is no search box because Search in now integrated into the address bar. Default search provider for express settings is Bing!
If anybody points out that the Address Bar + Tabs become congested with more number of tabs, tell them that in such a case, one can tear-off tabs: a feature which will be demonstrated in the coming slides.
ALL demos of GPU powered Webpage Compositions are here – “http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/”Do mention that folks also need to have a good internet connection for it to happen!
Demo page – “http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Browser/DownloadReputation/Default.html”Question expected: Where is this screen shown?Answer: In the download manager, which will be demonstrated later during the presentation!
Note: The ‘choose Add-ons’ windows that you see over here only comes up if any add-ons cause a time delay to launch a website!

Internet explorer 9
Internet Explorer 9<br />[Gopinathan Ramasamy]<br />Microsoft Student Partner<br />http://www.gopinathan.in<br />email@example.com<br />
What is new in IE9 and why should I care?<br />UI Enhancements<br />Less Distraction:It’s built keeping in mind that when you open a browser, you open it to browse the internet and not to see various fancy colored buttons, toolbars or search boxes.<br />No “Internet Explorer” on top. Refresh, Stop, Home, Favorites & Settings buttons grayed out! <br />
Browser now<br />occupies less than<br />10%<br />of your screen.<br /><ul><li>More Webpage View:By getting rid of the favorites bar above, the status bar below, and by placing the Address bar and the Tabs side by side, screen space utilization was maximized for the webpage.</li></li></ul><li>Performance Improvements<br /><ul><li>Web Standards Compliance:IE9 was built to incorporate W3C and ECMA International Web Standards and implement them successful with highest fidelity ratio possible.
<ul><li>Hardware Accelerated Graphics:Until now, graphic cards were only good for gaming on the PC. But now, IE9 uses the underlying power of the GPU to generate graphical images and other webpage components dynamically and efficiently.
Speed: What this means is that, you can now process heavy-duty games and other Rich Internet Applications (RIA) on the internet faster than ever – an by ‘fast’ we mean really really fast!</li></li></ul><li>Sounds great, but what about security?<br /><ul><li>IE8 helped over a billion malware blocksto Internet Explorer users. Download reputation in IE9 helps users distinguish between well-known downloads and those that are a higher risk to their computers. It warns of any potentially harmful content and recommends appropriate actions.</li></ul>Warning for a potentially harmful software downloaded!<br />
<ul><li>Malicious advertising (malvertising) is an increasingly common attack that can affect any website that hosts advertisements. In IE9, the navigation block page has been improved to more clearly show the malicious site that was blocked.
This helps you from being phished in which an attacker tricks you into giving your bank account/credit card numbers by redirecting you to a similar looking fraudulent website.</li></ul>By default SMP blocks such websites and virtually, makes everything on the screen red to warn you!<br />
Helpful IE9 Utilities<br /><ul><li>Download Manager:Now track all your downloads in one place – a feature long requested by IE users is now here. You can not just view/open but also search your downloads all from the Download Manager.
Add-on_Manager:Automatically notifies you of malfunctioning add-ons or those add-ons that are causing your browser to open websites slower than usual.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Tear-Off Tabs:Allow you to tear out a tab from a windows into it’s own separate window. Specially useful if you have many windows open or are doing different variety of tasks.
Pin to Taskbar:You can now treat websites as desktop applications – tear the tab and drag it to the taskbar to pin it. Useful when you want to quickly launch what you want.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Developer Tools:This tool enables Web site developers to quickly debug Microsoft JScript, investigate a behavior specific to Internet Explorer, or iterate rapidly to prototype a new design or try solutions to a problem on-the-fly.
An easy to use integrated visual interface to enable fast experimentation and optimize performance of the web application.</li></li></ul><li>There are a lot of other features and significant improvements too, so I would encourage you to download the IE9 beta from:<br />http://windows.microsoft.com/ie9<br />and explore them by yourself!<br />Questions?<br />
