We now have a pretty good idea of what Internet Explorer 9 will look like, compliments of a slip from Microsoft's Russian subsidiary.
Judging by the screenshot it is apparent that IE9 will be offering a minimalistic user interface which leaves as much room as possible for web sites. It appears the new browser will allow people to pin chosen sites to the desktop and open them in their own windows without any obvious indication they are using IE at all. There will be certain sites that are 'recognized' or 'protected' and can be pinned to the taskbar and launched from their own icons.
Details on the Russian site also revealed that IE9 will borrow features from Windows 7, including the ability to 'tear off' browser tabs and have them "snap" to a particular part of the screen; in a similar way that documents and applications already do in Win7.
There is also to be a unified search and address bar, something already included in Google's Chrome. However, mindful of the criticism which has been leveled at Google; it's a fair bet that Microsoft will allow users to choose whether or not to turn on a 'suggested sites' feature via an option in the settings/preferences.
Microsoft plans to release a beta of their latest browser on September 15th.
