Microsoft has on its official website, http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Info/Downloads/Default.html, released a preview of the Internet Explorer 10.
This comes hardly when even a month had passed since IE 9 version of its browser had been released.
The announcement came at Microsoft MIX11 conference, which discusses upcoming technologies. But here is the catch. Only users of the latest Microsoft Windows operating system shall be able to install it, which is the Windows 7 32-bit or Windows 7 64-bit versions of the Windows shall be needed for Internet Explorer 10.
Now, the IE 10 seems better than IE 9 due to added support for certain standards such as CSS3 Gradients that are applied to background images, and the CSS3 Flexible Box Layout, that aim at making the web browser faster and less prone to errors.
It is expected that the IE 10 shall be shipped along with Windows 8 operating system, that is gearing up for launch sometime next year, in 2012.
In the words of Dean Hachamovitch, Corporate Vice-President of Internet Explorer, “With Internet Explorer 9, websites can take advantage of the power of modern hardware and a modern operating system and deliver experiences that were not possible a year ago. Internet Explorer 10 will push the boundaries of what developers can do on the Web even further.”
