Turns it up a notch.
Microsoft has recently released the second Platform Preview of the Internet Explorer 10, which now uses the same rendering engine as in the recent public demonstration of Windows 8.
Considering the elapsed timeframe, IE10 PP2 is a spectacular improvement over its predecessor. According to various reports, it has scored the following in the HTML5Test:
IE10 PP1 – 125 + 5 bonus points
IE10 PP2 – 231 + 9 bonus points
As for other changes, you can expect additional performance and power consumption improvements.
Developers will be also happy to see Platform Preview 2 supporting CSS3 Positioned Floats, HTML5 Drag-drop, File Reader API, Media Query Listeners and HTML5 Forms (partially).
Furthermore, thanks to the HTML5 Sandbox for iframe isolation, web apps security will be significantly improved.
We are happy to see Internet Explorer 10 shaping up quite nicely and are looking forward for the Final release.
