Microsoft Releases IE10 Platform Preview with Native HTML5 Support

Posted Apr 12, 2011

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has announced that IE10 Platform Preview 1 is available today for download. The IE10 Platform Preview has native HTML5 support. Microsoft built IE9 from the ground up to support HTML5. IE10 is like IE9, but it avoids abstractions, layers, and libraries that would otherwise slow down computers.

Windows 7 with IE9 is currently the only native experience of HTML5 on the web today. IE9 takes advantage of what Windows 7 already offers – native graphics stacks and jump lists in the shell. This increases performance and reliability. You can download IE10 Platform Preview 1 from here:
