IE10 preview

IE10 was previewed yesterday at the MIX conference in Las Vegas. They have added lots of CSS3 support, but it makes me wonder why they didn’t put these things in the recently released IE9? And who will ever use IE9 when this one is approaching at the horizon?

I’m starting to lose track on the difference between previous versions. Fortunately most people say “to hell with IE6” (to paraphrase Zeldman), but there is still IE7, IE8, IE9 and now IE10. And of course, all main versions of Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera have to be tested by web developers prior to release.

But hey, Microsoft’s infamous browser is getting better for each version and who knows, in a few years it might even be good enough to use! Download IE10 and have a try if you like.
