Microsoft announces IE10 Platform Preview-

Las Vegas, April 12th

Microsoft today announced the Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview for deveopers, which can be downloaded from http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/, where code will be refreshed every 12 weeks.  The new platform will "push the boundaries of what developers can do on the web even further" and includes "support for additional standards, such as CSS3 Gradients on background images and CSS3 Flexible Box Layout"

Additonal partnerships and demos, including Foursquare were showed off as well as Namco which can be viewed at http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/events/mix (opens in new tab).  No word on Windows Phone support for IE10, though presumably it may come with "Windows Phone 8" sometime in 2012.

Update: IE Blog has much, much more info on IE10 which can be found here (opens in new tab).

  • It's good that they released the first PPV for IE10 but at the same time they said they're going to slow down the updates from 8 weeks to between 8-12 weeks. I suppose it's fine if we end up with less PPVs compared to IE9 and hit beta and RC faster.
  • Its not even usable with vista, like wtf is that?
