imageAt the opening of the Professional Developer Conference 2010, and celebrating 10 million downloads of the IE9 Beta which makes it the most successful and largest Beta program for internet Explorer 9 ever, the Internet Explorer team has just released out a new version of the Developer Preview 6 now available but there’s also a ton of new demos that you can try out on the IE9 Test Drive site.

Platform Preview 6 introduces two new major HTML5 features along with bug fixes and performance enhancements made since the release of Platform Preview 5 and the Internet Explorer 9 Beta.  The HTML5 features include CSS3 2D Transforms, which provide a simple, declarative way to translate, rotate, and scale elements in two-dimensional space. Platform Preview 6 also now recognizes HTML5 Semantic Elements as object type HTMLElement and provides default styling for them. It also continues to improve the developer experience, with built-in JavaScript formatting in F12 that quickly turns unreadable, minified code into nicely formatted JavaScript for easier debugging.

IE9 can be installed on systems running Windows 7 and Vista SP2. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.
