As you may remember, the final version of the Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) browser was released to the public on the 14th of March. The Japanese version of IE9 was not released on the same date, it was pushed back so as to not put any additional burden on the local internet infrastructure, Microsoft explained.

As of yesterday, the 25th of April, the Japanese version of IE9 has gone live on beautyoftheweb.jp, the site that Microsoft set up especially to showcase IE9’s capabilities, and on Microsoft’s worldwide sites page here. With the release of the Japanese version, IE9 is now available in 40 languages. Available to Vista and Windows 7 users that is, because IE9 does not provide support for XP.

In related IE9 news, Microsoft recently announced that on the 28th of March it started to offer the final version of IE9 via Windows Update to existing IE9 Beta and IE9 RC (Release Candidate) users and that on the 18th of April it started the gradual rollout of IE9 via Windows Update to. Microsoft explained that this gradual rollout is expected to be completed by the end of June. The Japanese version of IE9 is available for download, but it will not be pushed via Windows Update. Microsoft did not provide a date when IE9 would be rolled out via Windows Update.

If you are currently on an older version of IE, I would advise you to upgrade to IE9 as it comes with some pretty nice new features. The browser comes with a fresh user interface, lets you pin websites to the Windows 7 taskbar, has a faster JavaScript engine, supports HTML5, lets you block all ActiveX content and then selectively activate it on a per-site basis, and features do not track feature called Tracking Protection Lists that works much like the “Do Not Call” telephone registry and enables users to control how their information is shared.
