IE9: What the browser looks like

SAN FRANCISCO — Here is a screenshot of what the beta version of Internet Explorer 9 looks like.

It has a prominent back button, smaller forward button, the address bar, tabs and two small buttons on the right for bookmarks and tools. The frame is transparent so it blends in with whatever is on the computer desktop.

“It’s site-centric design, focused on being clean and a quiet setting in the background,” said Ryan Gavin, senior director for Internet Explorer.

The window below shows a “jump list” feature, which allows Web designers to build a customized menu if the user decides to bookmark the site on the Windows task bar.
