Microsoft Releases Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 2

It seems that not too long ago Microsoft released Internet Explorer 9 for Windows Vista and Windows 7 but Internet Explorer 10 is now in the process of being developed. In fact, it only took Microsoft less than a month to start talking about IE10 after the release of IE9. Microsoft is also stepping up its ruthlessness in operating system support in IE10 by requiring at least Windows 7 or later in order to be installed.

As with the platform previews for IE9 there will be a number of refreshes before the release candidate and then the final product. IE9 had a total of eight platform previews with release accelerating towards the end so it’ll be interesting to see how IE10 fares in comparison.

Anyway, IE10 sees further optimisations over IE9 and whilst it might not set any speed records we will see support for more of the latest HTML5 and CSS3 elements. Unless you are a web developer this might seem rather boring but it does enable the use of more dynamic page positioning and hardware efficiencies.

If you’re keen to give it a go then head on over the the Internet Explorer Test Drive site.
