In today’s Windows Phone 8 developer’s event, Microsoft has revealed some of the new Internet Explorer 10 features. Although they did not get into specifics, there are still tiny bits that are worth reporting.

Please note: Microsoft said that they will only talk about features that are developer related, so don’t expect anything else.

Performance Improvements

Thanks to a shared core between IE10 Desktop and IE10 Mobile, Internet Explorer 10 will support a broader range of the HTML5 capabilities (including touch events) and boost applications/websites performance.
