Internet Explorer 10 Development Continues

Internet Explorer 10 Development ContinuesEvery little bit helps.

If you are wondering whether or not the Internet Explorer division is still working on a new web standards support after the Consumer Preview of Windows 8, then we have some good news for you: they are.

In the recently leaked Windows 8 screenshots, it shows the Internet Explorer 10 build 10.0.837X.0, which now scores a total of 319 points on the HTML5Test.com.

How does it stack up against the other versions of IE? Well, Windows 8 Consumer Preview version of Internet Explorer 10 (build 8250.0) scores 316 points while IE9 goes as low as 138 points.

Although we don’t expect a lot of improvements in the next month, it’s probably safe to assume that the upcoming IE10 build that will be shipped with the Windows 8 RC (due in early June), should surpass the 320 points mark.

Speaking of releases, the Windows Phone 8 version of IE10 has also managed to bump its HTML5 score, up from 298 to 300 points.

        Circumstances have changed since yesterday, but if things turn out right I might be able to share something about Maxthon. But until then my lips are sealed. :p

          LOL, so you weren’t kidding about Maxthon?

            Nope, I am really who I said I was. :)

    316 points? IE10 is still behind the stable releases of Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.

    That’s a huge step in the right direction, finally! But oh, how I wish Microsoft would lay down and die. I don’t think my bitterness will subside until we no longer have to support IE8.

      I am wondering if MS implements only “approved” HTML5 features that are not likely to change while other browsers go for the aggressive approach and include a “draft like” standards?

      • http://twitter.com/bricky149 Shane Bundy

        That’s exactly what I’m thinking. Didn’t Microsoft issue a statement with IE8′s Acid3 score saying that they weren’t doing to bother with draft standards?

        • Przemysław Lib

          We DO NEED 2 separate implementation of HTML5 BEFORE it can be made OFFICIAL!!!

          That is how W3C works…. (or maybe it was 3 implementations, hmmm)

          And HTML5 itself is just __draft like__ :D :D :D

        • http://themousepotatowebsite.co.za/ Larry Botha

          I remember something about IE9 scoring higher than all other browsers at the time it was released on some official html5 test, when all that had been done with IE9 was to implement the features that were to be tested, and nothing else.
