It doesn’t seem all that long since Microsoft released the first platform preview of Internet Explorer 9 – the company’s cutting-edge hardware accelerated browser.
Well, it actually was just a year ago, and today at MIX11 they’re releasing the first platform preview of Internet Explorer 10. This is not a web browser you can use for your every day browsing, but as web developers – it’s something we’ll certainly keep our eyes on here at Branded3.
There’s no doubt that IE10 will build on the massive improvements on the HTML5 and CSS3 support that came in IE9 – but will it be enough to change the minds of web developers?
In our offices, we’re really split over whether IE9 is a future IE6 in the making; good for the time but with so many quirks you’ll end up writing code specifically for it.

Internet Explorer 10 is expected to be included Windows 8 when it is released in 2012.
Being the internet enthusiasts we are; we’ll be the first to comment on any more IE10 updates, so watch this space…
