According to Win7China, Internet Explorer 10 will be the default browser of Windows 8 and not IE9 as some might have expected.
But these are more than just rumors, according to internal Windows 8 testers, Milestone 3 builds already have early versions of IE10 pre-installed.
This is it, after lots of rumors and speculations, Microsoft has finally confirmed Internet Explorer 9 release date.
According to Ryan Gavin, senior director of IE, starting from next Monday, users will be able to download the Final version of Internet Explorer at 9 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time).
So here you have it, if Windows 8 is indeed stated for early 2012 release and company has changed its strategy, expect to see IE10 announcements later this year.
Microsoft has it, Google has it so why shouldn’t Baidu build one too?
To strengthen its business, Baidu, China’s most popular search engine is already working on its own web browser (codenamed FlyFlow) and as it turns out, testing phase has already begun.
Not much is known yet, although it was revealed that FlyFlow will have its own application platform and considering Baidu popularity, we might even see IE6 glory days over.
Rendering engine remains unknown as well. However, users should expect to see the public Beta of this web browser in the very near future.
