    IE11 has a very intereting F12 tools, Smiley

    Large part of it is written in TypeScript, and it support TypeScript debugging natively.

    And it looks Modern

    @felix9: ...and a seriously improved html5score, according to winbeta.org (320). Wonder what they added.

    With a rumored release date just a few months away, limiting IE11 to Windows 8+ would mean confining it to a pretty small niche. I don't think that's going to happen.

    I guess whatever has to be done to get people interested in Windows, has to get done. Fake leaks, check. Little tiles, check.

    How about some more promo pricing? Install Windows 8 on the 8th at 8:00 for $8! Create 8 Windows 8 Apps and get 8 Windows 8 licenses for your friends!

    Trade your iPhone in for a Windows 8 phone, get a Windows 8 license.

    Take the fear factor route, go to a Microsoft store and eat 8 meal worms, get a license. This is really not that hard folks.

    I think I'm obliged to say "It's all lies, I tell you!" and claim this build was put together by some folks with too much time and a copy of ResHacker.

    will FIleManager have namespace extensions?

    IE10 has an "install new versions automatically" checkbox.  Would that mean IE11 would be automatically installed?  Which is what chrome does, no ?

    That should be rephrased as "Install new compatible versions automatically" - I would assume IE10 for 7 and 8 will get IE11 as it is made available for their respective systems, when WindowsNext is released don't expect IE11 to be available immediately, we still had to wait months for IE10 to be made available for 7 (and many were sorely disappointed when it wasn't made available for Vista).

    There's also debate about whether major releases like IE11 should be installed automatically like Chrome is, or if we'll stick a longer cadence (compared to Chrome and Firefox, but still far shorter than the "once every 2 years" cycle we currently have). Try as we might, there's still going to be terrible intranet webapplications that only work in a specific version of IE.

    For now, just assume that the checkbox is a shortcut for the "Always install Critical and Recommended Updates" in Windows Update, so minor and point releases will be installed, but you'll get a warning for any major releases.

    As for when IE11 actually does come out - we'll wait and see.

    Nothing, IE10 has also a score of 320.

    Apparently, IE11 makes changes to the default agent string, and even includes a mode to impersonate Firefox.

    The assumption seems to be that this is an attempt to stop old 'MSIE' based hacks from working, and leave IE-specific sites behind.

    I thought the delay was because some DirectX components had to be backported?
