Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 10 has been a sensation, it is stated that it will be the default browser with much anticipated operating system Windows 8. The new operating system, Windows 8, is expected to be launched by the next year. The demo of Microsoft Internet Explorer released on 13th of this month is the second preview and it used the same IE engine as used in the Microsoft’s demo of Windows 8. This engine will add some great features to the new Operating system with enhanced and new applications. Moreover Windows 8 is almost like Windows 7 with good features and is same as Windows 7 support.
The platform previews Microsoft started delivering in the lead-up to Internet Explorer 9 are bare-bones browser engines on which developers can try out their site code. Platform Preview 1 of IE10 was released at the company's MIX11 conference in April. Ryan Gavin with Microsoft's IE team told PC Mag today that "we continue to get a lot of good feedback from developers on the balance that we're striking between openness and transparency, while respecting developers' time as we deliver meaningful updates with the Platform Previews." This stands in contrast to some open source browsers' "nightly release" strategy.
Web browsers quest for HTML5 is awash in contradictions, including the fact that while it's a specification designed to foster cross-browser compatibility, the disparity among the browsers that support it couldn't be greater. Every browser implements its own subset of the standard and many times, a so-called HTML5 page will only display correctly in one. And while efforts like HTML5Test.com try to measure HTML5 support with a score, it's not so simple. Sure, a browser may respond to the most HTML5 code calls, but that says nothing about whether or not the feature was implemented correctly.
This is a major point that the IE team likes to make, especially in light of the fact that it gets a lower score on HTML5Test.com than other current browser versions. Indeed, the Microsoft team has worked intensively with the W3C, the Internet's governing standards body, submitting well over 6,000 test cases. With this second Platform Preview, IE does indeed bring some firsts in HTML5 support, though many of the updates are for features that other browsers made available long ago.
Among the catch-up HTML5 features included in today's preview: Drag-and-drop, File Reader, Forms, and Web workers. The last provides a way for Web applications to run processes in the background, thereby improving perceived performance. Among new HTML5 support on which IE10 is leading: Channel Messaging, which makes Web workers more efficient; and Page visibility, which tells a site developer whether the current page is visible—not on a background tab or minimized. With this last tool, a developer knows whether or not to spend processing energy on the page, saving the end user not only performance drags on other running software, but saving his battery as well.
A new, unique, security feature in IE10 PP2 is HTML5 Sandbox and i frame isolation. This lets a Web developer contain elements of his site, preventing it from doing damage. For example, if a site uses a third-party ad service, the developer can use the Sandbox feature to protect the user from possible malware in an ad. If you face problems with it you can contact malware removal tool.
As usual, Microsoft has not only made the new browser engine available, but has published several new demos showing off its new capabilities. These include a How Stuff Works demo, which dramatically and visually shows how differently current browsers display HTML5 Canvas compositions, a Fireflies speed demo to show off GPU acceleration of HTML5 content, and Bellagio fountains, which shows the effects of Message Channel support.
