IE9 Beta 2 Leaked

Internet Explorer 9 Beta 2 (Build 9.0.8027.6000) has been leaked on the internet. It doesn’t come as much of a surprise, really. It has stability and compatibility fixes. Give it a try if you are into leaked betas. Just remember that it comes with zero support!

The build, version 9.0.8027.6000 includes bug fixes, stability improvements and the latest rendering engine seen in the recent developer Platform Preview. It appears, from the digital signature, that the build was compiled as recently as November 19. Microsoft’s previous Platform Preview 7 build was labeled 9.0.8023.6000.

The new build doesn’t appear to include any UI enhancements. Microsoft has updated its download manager so that it now displays the transfer speed without the need to hover over individual downloads. The updated beta also performs better on Microsoft’s IE test drive site.
