JavaScript Speed

On comparison, the JavaScript engine of IE9 is almost 8 times faster than IE8! Its even faster than Firefox 3.6 but not quite as fast as Google Chrome 4.


Direct2D is a 2D and vector graphics application programming interface (API) designed by Microsoft and implemented in Windows 7. It offers high quality and fast performance while maintaining interoperability with GDI/GDI+ APIs and Direct3D/DirectDraw APIs. It can take advantage of hardware acceleration through compatible graphics cards
