Internet Explorer 9 – the next iteration of the most popular browser in the world – will launch on March 14, Microsoft reps announced today. Among the niceties expected to be included in final version of Internet Explorer 9 are increased support for hardware-accelerated graphics, support for HTML5, plenty of improved processing power, and an address bar search (a feature already included on the Google Chrome browser).

The new Microsoft browser will make "a more beautiful web for all of us," Ryan Gavin, Microsoft's Senior Director for Internet Explorer Business and Marketing, wrote in a blog post today. Gavin said IE 9 would get a full roll-out – complete with performances from several rock bands, including Yeasayer – at the SXSW festival in Austin next week.
