Because these are development builds, and are not completely stable for use. And considering the amount of integration IE has with Windows, it would be bad to update the browser to an unstable version. And making it stable every time they add and/or improve a feature, it would take even longer for us to get new versions.

Maybe I did something wrong -- because when I launch IE now, it still looks and behaves like IE9. And yes, I know I'm using the IE 9 GUI, so it should look the same, but it doesn't seem to be any different.

One point -- the link says they named the folder IE9pp6, but I named the folder IE10pp2. Could that be the problem? Otherwise, everything else is the same as with the instructions in the link.

You can easily confirm if you are using the IE10 engine in IE9
Go to this site Whats My User Agent?
It should say "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 10.0; Windows NT 6.1; win32; Trident/6.0)"

OK, tried that -- still says IE9. I went back and confirmed that I copied the files from the iepreview.exe.local directory.

IE10 Platform Preview 2, the same HTML5 engine seen in the recent public “Windows 8” demos, is now available for download. With this update, IE10 continues to deliver support for site-ready HTML5 technologies as well as improving performance:



This video shows some of the HTML5 technologies in the second IE10 Platform Preview in action.

With the second Platform Preview, developers can start working with several site-ready HTML5 technologies for building beautiful, interactive Web applications with great performance and security. You can read the full list here in the IE10 developer guide:
  • Beautiful and interactive Web applications are easier to deliver with support for several new technologies like CSS3 Positioned Floats, HTML5 Drag-drop, File Reader API, Media Query Listeners and initial support for HTML5 Forms.
  • HTML5 Application performance improves across the board, as well as the ability to deliver better performance with more efficient use of battery life with new technologies like Web Workers with Channel Messaging, Async script support, and others.
  • Web application security improves using the same markup with support for HTML5 Sandbox for iframe isolation.
IE10 continues IE9’s precedent of enabling Web applications to do more in the browser without plug-ins. It also continues the pattern of offloading work to the parts of a PC that are best suited for them, like the GPU for graphics, and different processor cores for background compilation of JavaScript.

I have problem with IE9, so I downloaded IE10 platform view but there is no address bar!
Is this pre-beta version addressed only for developers?

Yes I did.
And I read that developers ... "can start working with several site-ready HTML5 technologies for building beautiful, interactive Web applications with great performance and security..."
I am sorry, I just gave it a quick try and wondered if it is usable by ordinary user, like me!
I understand it is for developers...but does this explain the absence of address bar?

Anyway, thanks.
This is not for me now!

Yes, it is usable for everyday BASIC tasks with the internet. To go to a page hit CTRL+O or check the menu bar "Go to" something something (too lazy to look) to browse xD

Trying to open a pop-up will result in opening the new windows in IE9, clicking on a download link will reload the download page after opening in IE9 and proceed with the download manager. Everything else is okay in this PP.
