I watched a video showing all about it yesterday. Very cool. Let's see...ah yes, it was at . I left a comment there but it's awaiting moderation, but what I said was, "I guess my question would be … will the new Bing work like this ONLY on IE9? Or will it also work this way on any modern browser that can handle HTML5, CSS3, etc.?" I wondered because the video implies that the new features are tied to IE9 but I thought that might only be because IE9 would finally have some capabilities that other browsers already have.
