Microsoft Cranks IE to 10

Microsoft’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) kicked of its MIX11 Web designers and developers conference in Las Vegas with a surprise that few expected, IE 10.

The new IE 10 preview was unexpected since, Microsoft has just delivered the production release of IE9 in mid-March, the first major release of IE in several years.

IE9 provides support for hardware accelerated HTML5 and, according to Dean Hachamovitch, corporate vice president of Internet Explorer, IE10 aims to capitalize on that.

“The first platform preview of Internet Explorer 10 builds on these innovations and includes support for additional standards, such as CSS3 Gradients on background images and CSS3 Flexible Box Layout,” Microsoft said in a statement.
