Internet Explorer 10 Preview Launches

Just a month ago, Microsoft [MSFT] launched Internet Explorer 9. The new browser launched quite well with a couple of million downloads in the first 24 hours. IE9 brings HTML5 to the browser as well as a more modern appearance and a big step up from IE8 and previous versions.

We now hear that Microsoft has launched a preview of Internet Explorer 10 and with it, it will include the features that arrived in IE9 along with some new hardware support such as acceleration which will help increase the speed of browsing the Internet.

To let you know what’s going on with the development of the latest test browser, Microsoft has created a test center that provides details of all the features that it is currently working on.

What we learn over on that page is that there are currently 502 new test cases that have been created for IE10. What you’ll also see is that Microsoft has created a comparison of other browsers which includes Firefox 4, Opera 11, Safari 5, Chrome 10 and IE9 and a table of what works and what doesn’t in each of these browsers.

If you want to take IE10 for a test drive, check out this page for details of how to grab the download.
