How is it that Internet Explorer 9 has been able to speed up & increase my computer's performance by quite a bit?

I have two computers that are both running Windows 7 64 bit Professional.

Once I installed Internet Explorer 9, both of my computers have increased in speed, performance, and efficiency by quite a bit.

I understand that Internet Explorer 9 uses hardware acceleration.

Can someone explain to me exactly how Internet Explorer 9 is able to use features such as hardware acceleration to drastically improve both of my computers?

How does support for hardware acceleration affect Internet Explorer 9 end users?

Hardware-accelerated video, graphics, and text allow end users’ websites and applications to perform like applications that they install directly on their PCs. High-definition videos play smoothly, graphics are clearer and more responsive, colors are truer, and websites can be more interactive. If your PC is not able to take advantage of hardware acceleration, Internet Explorer 9 automatically chooses the software rendering option to provide a compatible user experience.
