First IE10 Platform Preview Download Supports Native HTML 5 and More

It has always been interesting to me that while Microsoft's Internet Explorer web browser is the most popular by a large margin it is also one of the most reviled by many users. Each new version of IE brings with it new features and some of those features are at times ones that competing browsers have had for a long time. The slow update process is one of the things that many don’t like about IE.

Yesterday the first preview build for IE10 landed and is available for download right now. IE10 Platform Preview 1 shows off the next wave of HTML 5 support from Microsoft. According to Microsoft, the first preview of IE10 has continued on the path outlined by IE9, which debuted not to long ago. The big feature is the native HTML 5 support, but that isn't all the preview offers users.

“When we started looking deeply at HTML5, we saw that it will enable a new class of applications. These applications will stress the browser runtime and underlying hardware in ways today’s Web sites don’t. We quickly realized that doing HTML5 right – our intent from the start – is more about designing our browser’s subsystems around what these new applications will need than it is about a particular set of features. From the beginning, we approached IE9 with the goal of enabling professional-grade, modern HTML5 support on top of modern hardware through Windows.

The IE10 team notes in the post about the first preview that it is about three weeks into the development of IE10 and based on the progress already the team wanted to engage the developer community. The IE10 team showed off the browsing engine along with several new browser tests at the MIX conference that was held yesterday.

Among the new features on the preview are CSS3 Multi-column Layout, CSS3 Grid Layout and CSS3 Flexible Box Layout, CSS3 Gradients, and ES5 Strict Mode in action. They also demonstrated additional standards support (like CSS3 Transitions) and CSS3 3D Transforms. The team plans to offer new platform previews of IE10 every 8-12 weeks at the same link you can get the current preview.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
