Microsoft India has partnered with some of the most popular websites – Rediff India, Zapak Games, Indiatimes & NDTV.com – to bring alive the IE9 capabilities and to further leverage the power of the whole PC.
These experiences will be available to consumers in the coming weeks. Globally, Microsoft has partnered with over 70 top websites and global brands who have created new experiences to show off the capabilities of Internet Explorer 9 and whose collective reach is over 800 million visitors or about two thirds of the active people on the Web.
These partners include Amazon, eBay, IMDB, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. In India, Microsoft’s launch partners are Rediff India, IndiaTimes, NDTV.com and Zapak Games.
Announcing the availability, Hemant Sachdev, Managing Director – Consumer & Online, Microsoft India 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.
Clean and minimalistic looking, IE9 redefines browsing as we know it today, and deliver a whole new, beautiful online experience.”
With the beta availability of IE9, Zapak will take on a new smooth and sleek avatar. 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.
Rediffmail plans to take it to a new level by leveraging features in IE9 for our social music streaming product -SongBuzz.
