The third technical preview of Internet Explorer 9 is available now. According to Neowin, the big news in this one is support for the HTML 5 video tag. For my money, this makes the preview a must-download for developers.

I’m also interested in the speed claims; Brandon LeBlanc recently posted a video of IE9 kicking Safari’s butt in some speed tests.

If you’ve been playing with IE9, I’d be interested in hearing from you. Are you finding big speed increases as well? Since this continues to be a major knock against IE – that it’s slower than the competition – this could be a significant upgrade. Let me know what you’re experiencing with IE9.
