Online sources are indicating that Microsoft would launch the stable edition of Internet Explorer 9 on March 14.

Microsoft has already made available a release candidate edition which has seen good response.

A company source revealed that the browser would be launched in the Indian market later this month on 24th.

International launch is expected to take place earlier.

Internet Explorer 9 is a crucial release for the company as they finally have a product that can take on both Chrome and Firefox with improved support for web standards. Support for hardware acceleration means that it could turn out to be a solid alternative to these browsers on a recent machine.
