A sign of what’s to come for both Windows 8.5 and Windows Phone 8.5.
Now here is a piece of good news to kick-start your weekend. According to the recent discovery by François Remy, who has Windows Blue installed on his machine, Internet Explorer 11 might support WebGL after all.
Now, before you get too excited, keep in mind that WebGL does not yet work, however, the interfaces are already defined, which implies that Microsoft at least put some effort into it. Whether or not they have abandoned the idea, we will have to wait and see.
Speaking of IE11 and new standards support, here is what else you can expect from it:
- Standardized CSS Flexbox syntax
- A new “Site issues” tag in developer tools
- Partial Fullscreen API support
- WeakMap and __proto__ support
Google Chrome & Firefox like changes:
- Navigator appName property has been modified to look more like Gecko and WebKit.
- Depreciated document.all property is now falsy just like on Gecko and Webkit.
Not bad for a start but we want more.
