Technology News: Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 Beta Available

If you are the one keeping up with developments within Microsoft then you know about the new Internet Explorer 9 Beta. I have downloaded and installed it and must say it is a massive improvement over it's previous (IE 7 and 8). It is lite, clean and fast to name a few.

Something disappointing though for the CRM community is as per Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 readme "Internet Explorer 9 Beta is not supported with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011.

There is a good news though, that you have a workaround you'll find it here Pablo Peralta's Blog which I haven't tried it myself yet. You can if you will.

IE9 would need some work before it's final release which Microsoft continues to do.
