Is there a site to where I can download it from, because I want to give it a try and see if I like it or not and also does this mean Gmail will not be supporting IE9 anymore

What's the difference between the developer preview and say the consumer/customer preview?

Thinking about downloading it, but since I'm no developer not sure if they'll be limitations.

Thanks.

Hello Drew,

It's basically this below for the difference before the final RTM version is released.

developer preview = beta 1

Yeah, IE11 in Windows 8.1 has a few minor compatibility glitches in it still that will hopefully get worked out by the RTM.
