By using the documentation and samples in this guide, web developers and designers can prepare to use these new features. To download and install Internet Explorer Platform Preview, see the Internet Explorer Test Drive site.

    If Windows 8 beta's at BUILD .. I'm guessing we'll see a Beta build of IE10 around that date.. As why have a platform preview out when the beta build is already in Windows 8.

    The new preview build provides support for SS3 Positioned Floats, HTML5 Drag-drop, File Reader API, Media Query Listeners and initial support for HTML5 Forms, according to the post. There are also general HTML5 application performance improvements, battery-life-efficiency improvements and overall web-application security improvements. Microsoft officials have said to expect new test builds of IE 10 every three months. Microsoft is building around the “Trident” rendering engine in IE 10 with Windows 8. Windows officials have said that Microsoft will expect developers to use HTML5, JavaScript and CSS to build new immersive applications for Windows 8. Microsoft execs so far have made no statements about how/when/if the company will also support other development technologies in Windows 8.

    I mean IE10 is being developed alongside Windows 8. So I'd say Windows 8 Beta 1 should have a beta version of IE10 at least so we can try out the Immersive UI and likes.

    It's odd how this is a June 28th build and they launched it the day next. Wasn't there any extra testing even though it's just a preview?

    Yes, but that is in Windows 8 Forum. So members not using Windows 8 will not notice it.
    I think that thread should be deleted.

    Yes, but at the same time they will release IE10 Beta seperately.

    It was released about 8pm GMT which would be earlier in America where it was build most likely. So they likely built in, then needed a few hours to make sure it installs then update their pages.

    This one installed & runs fine in Windows 8 build 7989 for me.
    It runs along side of the Win8 built-in IE9.

    I am posting this through IE10. It is not as I expected. Very slow. There is no Address Bar, no Tabs
