CNET News Daily Podcast: Microsoft previews IE9

Wait, you just upgraded to Internet Explorer 8? You're already behind the times, friend! Microsoft is previewing an early version of its next-generation browser to the general public, a big change from its older ways.

Microsoft is keeping busy at this year's Mix conference in Las Vegas, and earlier today announced that it would be offering a preview version of its next-generation Internet Explorer browser. Sure, it's missing some important things like a "back" button, but that shouldn't stop early adopters from giving it a spin. We also report on the FCC's National Broadband Plan, a Dell lawsuit against LCD makers, and the Nexus One finally being available for AT&T and Rogers Wireless users who want to partake in glorious 3G data speeds. That, and much more in today's episode.
