Microsoft is to release its forthcoming browser Internet Explorer 9 on 14 March.
Apparently, Microsoft still has some "surprises" in store for anyone interested in downloading the company's latest iteration of Internet Explorer, which remains the dominant browser despite hot competition from Mozilla and Google.
Meanwhile, Mozilla is scurrying towards a March release for Firefox 4. But the Release Candidate version of that browser is yet to rock up, it could arrive as early as this week.
It's perhaps unfair to surmise that Mozilla was planning to push out the final Firefox 4 code next week sometime. Then again, does Microsoft know something we don't?
