With IE9 Barely Out the Door, Here Comes IE10
Internet Explorer 9 hasn’t even been live for a month and already Microsoft is preparing the way for its successor: IE10. The company released a developer preview of the browser, which it showed off for the first time at its MIX 11 conference this morning. Like its predecessor, IE10 is being designed for HTML5 and built with full hardware acceleration. In the words of Dean Hachamovitch, Microsoft’s corporate vice president for Internet Explorer, it’s intended to make sites feel and run more like native applications than Web pages. Little wonder industry observers expect IE10 to be the browser Microsoft includes in Windows 8 when it finally ships.
