IE 10 almost finished for Windows 7 with final preview

Billly Gates (198444) writes | about 2 years ago

Internet Explorer 1

Billly Gates (198444) writes "IE 10 just hit the final preview yesterday for Windows 7. Windows XP and Windows Vista support has been dropped. Most slashdotters have a complex relationship with Internet Explorer. Many of us are hating it, while some of us are writting websites for it, or supporting it in an office setting. Microsoft has tried last year to make IE good again with release IE 9 which had some fanfare on slashdot, such as hardware acceleration and better standards compliancy, while MS even launched a full campaign to get us to switch.. IE 10 is supposed to continue the new process and promises to be much faster and support much more HTML 5 and CSS 3 and W3C HTML 5.1 and CSS 3.1 with a score of 320 on HTML5test. As a comparison, last years IE 9 only scored 138. The download is available here. Perhaps a few webdevelopers could care to comment if MS is really changing up its game since IE 6? It also appears that MS is rapidly releasing its browser on an annual schedule as well. What are the reactions of IT departments since IE 9 is now going to be an obsolete browser already?"

Slashdot ain't interest in IE (1)

I suspect that the Slashdot editors are shunting the news of IE 10 for Win 7.

I have submitted two times regarding this release and both time the editors have rejected them.

I do hope the editors will let your submission pass.

Anyway, the place to dl IE 10 for Win 7 is @ []
