Microsoft offer development sneak-peak at IE10 – Beta version expected this September
It’s now been around a month since the release of the Internet Explorer 9 web-browser, but Microsoft is already three weeks into creating the next offering, IE10.
The company has released a very early look, revealing some of the details in an official blog and a sneak-peak video as a platform preview for developers – saying “we want to start engaging the development community now”.
The official word from Microsoft states “We built IE9 from the ground up for HTML5 and for Windows to deliver the most native HTML5 experience and the best Web experience on Windows. IE10 continues on IE9’s path, directly using what Windows provides and avoiding abstractions, layers, and libraries that slow down your site and your experience.”
“IE’s approach to emerging standards results in less churn and more progress for developers. IE10 builds on full hardware acceleration and continues our focus on site-ready Web-standards. This combination enables developers to deliver the best performance for their customers on Windows while using the same, web-standard markup across browsers.”
