Microsoft set to announce Internet Explorer 9 plans

Today at a packed out keynote for Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference (PDC) Microsoft's Ray Ozie hinted at the next generation of Internet Explorer.

According to sources close to Neowin, Microsoft VP Steven Sinofsky is set to unveil the software giants plans for Internet Explorer 9 tomorrow. Neowin understands that the company is planning a technical preview of Internet Explorer 9 for developers and customers, but that the bits and preview may not be available immediately.

Scott Guthrie is also set to announce Silverlight 4 plans tomorrow, further pushing the "3 screens and a cloud" vision that Microsoft believes in currently. The software giant sees data and services available across the PC, the phone and TVs. Internet Explorer 9 and Silverlight 4 are essential elements of this vision.

Neowin will be live blogging the day 2 keynote tomorrow so stay tuned for all the announcements.

Update: It's likely that the technical preview will be available at CES 2010 or Mix 2010.
