Internet Explorer 11 has been introduced with next generation internet standards at its base such as WebGL and Google’s open source content transfer protocol SPDY (Speedy). These are confirmed from the leaked screenshots of IE11 on Windows 8.1. WebGL is latest injection in browser technology that aids image loading faster and smoother. While SPDY has trial and test for faster page loading and reducing page latency issues. It may be officially released at Microsoft Build Conference which is starting today at Moscone Center in San Francisco, California from 26th – 28th June 2013. Here is the gallery of all leaked screen shots published on Microsoft-News
IE11 is coming with support of many web technologies which have already been implemented by major web mobile and desktop browsers. Initially company completely denied supporting these emerging standards developed by Mozilla support. And under the hood, it also denied to support SPDY protocol because Google was on its back.
There are many other features which IE11 have embraced. Few are mentioned below;
WebGL (Web Graphics Library) is latest web standard developed by Khronos Group. It enables use of 2D and 3D graphics without use of any extra plugin. It has already been embedded in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari and Opera for desktop. Mobile browsers Android, Blackberry Playbook, Firefox for mobile, Chrome, Maemo, Opera mobile, Tizen, Ubuntu Touch and WebOS support WebGL standard.
Google Developers have taken initiative to make web faster and to reinvent technologies from roots. Many new technologies have emerged from this struggle and team experimented on new protocols too. SPDY (speedy) was developed to transmit data on internet using alternative protocol of HTTP. We are in new era which demands improved protocols & standards for data transfer whereas latency was not major issue in the beginning.
SPDY has been fully tested in Google Labs for latency and Chrome browser has been built on its base. SPDY-enabled application and browser has been tested which showed that SPDY results in 64% reduction in page loading. This open source protocol has been implemented first in Chrome while Mozilla Firefox and Opera embedded it too.
