Microsoft Microsoft will launch its newest version of the Internet Explorer browser, IE9, at the South by Southwest festival March 14, the company said in a blog post Wednesday.

From the Texas site of SXSW, as the event is known, the tech giant plans to create “a more beautiful Web” starting at 9 that night.

Among the more interesting features is tracking protection, a privacy feature that will let users select which websites to block from gathering information.

IE9 will be available to those with Windows Vista and Windows 7, though not XP.
