The successor to IE 9 is currently under development process by Microsoft. The company has recently released the first Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview, which not only runs on Windows 7 but also on later versions. This has been noted as a lightning fast release even for the very competitive browser market, only after one month from IE 9’s final release.
Internet Explorer 10 means real business and comes to overwhelm its competition, maximizing important IE 9 functionality regarding HDD acceleration, HTML5 support, and CSS 3 uptake.
In the previous 3 versions of Internet Explorer, Microsoft has been more or less accused that is not taking some of the privacy issues very seriously. Now the company has steadily brought privacy-related features to the browser which includes InPrivate filtering, support for Do Not Track and even Tracking Protection Lists, enabling to work even when a website does not support DNT.
Now do not be fooled by IE’s 10 Do Not Track component as it is not the first major browser to pack this feature, but surely is the first to have it switched on by default. Microsoft plans to implement this protocol on its own websites in the months to come.
Last September, Microsoft has released to the general public its Windows 8 Developer Preview, which came with IE 10 Developer Preview the first breed of IE 10.
Probably you have noticed that the desktop version of Windows 8 Consumer preview feels and acts similarly to Internet Explorer 9, but the Metro version is a new thing, the first IE browser built for touch.
Looks like Microsoft is on the verge of accomplishing great things with Internet Explorer 10, full screen mode has finally becoming the default on non-mobile web browsers.
Great improvements are marked over Internet Explorer 9, so we can say that Internet Explorer 10 is an excellent browser both as regular Windows application and as a Metro app. Has been built with higher standard support, it is fast, and focuses on more up-to-date user interactions than ever before.
