Microsoft India has partnered with Rediff.com, Zapak Games, Indiatimes and NDTV.com to bring alive the capabilities of Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) Beta and to further leverage the power of the whole PC. Microsoft, which has just made available IE9 Beta available for its consumers in India, claims that IE9 enables a version of the web that is faster, cleaner and more trusted by default.

Hemant Sachdev, managing director, consumer and online, Microsoft India, has said, “Consumers today use the web as a source of entertainment, education, information and as a platform for communication. Keeping all these consumer needs in mind, we have made unprecedented investments to develop our latest browser, Internet Explorer 9 which has been made site-centric rather than browser centric.”

Sumit Rajwade, VP, technology, Rediff.com, has said, “Our association with Microsoft goes way back when IE 4.0 was launched with DHTML capabilities all the way to IE8 last year. We are happy taking it to a new level by leveraging features in IE9 for our social music streaming product – SongBuzz. SongBuzz now uses HTML5 capabilities which come with IE9 such as audio tagging, local storage and the ability to integrate with Windows 7, hence delivering a differentiated social music experience.”

“With the beta availability of IE9, Zapak will take on a new smooth and sleek avatar,” Deepak Abbot, vice president, Zapak.com, has said. “Zapak.com can now be directly installed on consumer PCs just like any standard Windows application; hence making it quick and easy for our users. What’s more, with IE9, consumers will be able to personalize their Zapak.com web page and share games with their friends on social networks such as Windows Live.”
