Description

In this video, we take a look at the Internet Explorer 10 on the Windows 8 Release Preview and the improvements made in performance, touch-first experiences, and HTML5 standards-based adaptive layouts.

We explore three new demos available on IETestDrive.com today. The first demo, Chalkboard Benchmark, takes a look at the hardware-accelerated performance of Internet Explorer 10 with common touch actions such as panning, zooming and scaling content. Our next demo, Browser Surface, takes design cues from Microsoft Surface. This demo focuses on the touch-first experiences that are enabled using standards-based design and the new MSGesture API. Lastly, the Layout Adaptation demo shows the power of using Media Queries and Viewport to create layouts that adapt to your device and the size of your browser.

With this latest platform preview, IE10 continues to deliver the foundational features and performance that developers depend on to build great applications. You can download the Windows 8 Release Preview today, then try these demos and more at http://ietestdrive.com.

      My IE10 crashes within a few minutes of opening two or more tabs.  I have a NVIDIA Geforce 560 Ti 2Gb.  I did this on Consumer Preview as well.  I was hoping Release Preview would fix it but it did not.  Also weird enough it did not do this on Developer Preview.  Please fix this in time for the final release.  Thanks.

      I purchased a new gaming laptop with Windows 8 and IE10. IE10 opens fine but as soon as I enter a search string in any search engine or go to any sites that has a download button and click on that button, a messages box pops up saying Internet Explorer has stopped working. I'm afraid to uninstall IE10 and install IE9 because it is so tightly interconnected with the OS. I'm having to rely on Firefox and Chrome until MS comes up with a fix.

      I purchased the windows 8. I am not happy. I wished I kept my windows xp at least it would update and download the latest version of adobe flash player automatically. Windows 8 is complete garbage.
