Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 10

IE 10 to offer 60% increase in supported modern web standards and 20% increase in real-world site performance, firm claims.

By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft has launched Internet Explorer 10 for ‘700 million Windows 7 customers’, and it’s claimed to be much faster.

The company said IE10 will offer faster interactivity, and faster JavaScript performance, while reducing CPU usage and hence improving battery life on mobile PCs.

The company claims that IE10 supports for over 30 new modern Web standards, a 60% increase over IE9, as well as improved security and privacy.

Features of the new browser include support for CSS3 Positioned Floats, HTML5 Drag-drop, File Reader API, Media Query Listeners, Pointer Events, and HTML5 Forms.

IE10 improves hardware accelerated performance of SVG and HTML4 by 15% compared to IE 9 with increased drawing performance, and speed reading improved by 30% over IE9, the company said.

The browser has improvements to the Chakra JavaScript engine that include profile-based, type-specialised JIT machine code, floating point operations, object and property access.

In addition, IE10 has integrated spell checking, auto-correct for common spelling mistakes, CSS Text Shadow, CSS 3D Transforms, CSS3 Transitions and Animations, CSS3 Gradient, and SVG Filter Effects.
