Download Internet Explorer 10 PP 2

By | June 30, 2011

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.

    I’m using IE10 PP2 right now and I think it’s a great step forward for Microsoft. Still some way to go but it’s a great improvement.

    If they can do this then why has it taken them this long to do so?

    Great Job by IE Team… they are definitely going towards leading.!!Can someone post the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark ? Just wondering whether there is some improvement in the ¬†JavaScript engine too .
