Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 4: Win 7 users need not apply

Quote:
Microsoft has released the fourth preview of Internet Explorer 10. As is the case with previous Platform Previews, the release is aimed at developers: the new features are important to those creating rich, complex Web applications, but will have less impact on Web users.

However, even Web developers might struggle to get too excited about the latest preview, because they probably won't be able to run it: it only works on the Windows 8 preview release that Microsoft shipped at its BUILD conference in September.

The new features include Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS), JavaScript typed arrays and binary file manipulation, and HTML5 video subtitling. Typed arrays and support for binary files enable much better performance for JavaScript applications that handle binary data, such as images and audio.

It's a platform preview, not a full IE version. It will never be offered.

Thanks Teerex.

I thought they might "push it" out to the Windows 8 DP.

They ARE pushing it to W8DP! If you dont' get an update from WU, just download it yourself.

And I'm mad that PP4 isn't available on W7. Why the hell not? If I want to test out a new browser version, I have to test out a whole new OS version, too? Come on!
