There are many speculations about the look of the new version where some say it will look like Chrome-like “tabs-on-top” or incorporation of an Office-like ribbon toolbar or some say it would resemble the Zune/Windows Phone 7 “Metro” look.
The Microsoft team working on IE9 focuses on two objectives: speed and standards support. The XP users won’t be able to use this faster browser as for the speed enhancement; the browser takes advantage of graphics hardware acceleration using the version of DirectX present in Vista and Windows 7.
British SUV maker Land Rover is all set to develop its models in India from 2011. The company would most probably start in Pune with the assembly of the Freelander that is sold in the U.S. as the LR2.

Land Rover has currently sold 195 vehicles in the first seven months of this year where 53 of them have been Freelanders. The Range Rover Sport which was launched in India in 2009 has 63 buyers till now.
