March 21st, 2010 by Stephen Jones Leave a reply »

The new IE 9 script engine, codenamed “Chakra, focuses on three themes:

Best interoperable HTML5
Hardware Accelerated Graphics
High Performance Browser

It supports: CSS3, Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), XHTML parsing, and the video and audio tags using industry-standard (H.264/MPEG4 and MP3/AAC) codecs.

Microsoft recently demonstrated a new JavaScript engine that uses multiple cores of modern chips to manage computing resources and ito mprove Web performance. It is also developing for the jQuery JavaScript Library to help improve the development process of standards-based Web applications and to provide better interoperability between ASP.NET and the jQuery JavaScript Library by enhancing ASP.NET so .that NET developers can better incorporate jQuery capabilities. In addition, Microsoft will distribute versions of the jQuery JavaScript Library with popular products such as Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET MVC 2. and will contribute a templating engine to the jQuery JavaScript Library Team to simplify Web applications. Iplementing HTML5 Web standards is the name of the game, every single JavaScript and DOM API used by the top 7,000 websites was recorded. IE9 will deliver support for every API used by those sites. crosoft wants its HTML5 support to be stable and robust. This means that Internet Explorer 9 is unlikely to support every single part of the various specifications that make up HTML5 – it’s heading in the right direction
