"We did the deed of tracking down the man from Microsoft who was showing off Internet Explorer 9 Mobile at SXSW, and shot video of his demonstration."
The Next Web got an early look at Internet Explorer 9 for Windows Phone 7 at South By Southwest. IE9 for WP7 gains support for HTML5 video and audio, Scalable Vector Graphics ("SVG") for better rendering performance, the address bar was moved down to the bottom so it's more accessible and browser chrome was minimized so web pages shine through. We should see IE9 available as an update on our phones later this year.
