Microsoft launches IE 10 preview for Windows 8

Microsoft has released a new test build of Internet Explorer 10. This version (The Platform Preview 4 (PP4) release ) only works on Windows 8.

This is not an update to the Platform Preview of IE 10 on Windows 7 but this release is for IE 10 on the Developer Preview pre-beta build of Windows 8 only.

IE 10 PP4  is said to add even more support for HTML5 technologies, enabling richer Web applications.

Some of the additions:

  • Support for JavaScript typed arrays for efficient storage and manipulation of typed data.
  • Addition of the CSS user-select property to control how end-users select elements in a Web page or application.
  • Support for HTML5 video text captioning, including time-code, placement, and captioning file formats.
  • Support for CORS (cross origin resource sharing), which allows developers to use XMLHttpRequest to request, share and move data across applications on different domains.
