The new browser also provides a 60 % increase in supported modern Web standards including the latest HTML5, CSS3, DOM, Web Performance, and Web Application specifications. As an example, developers can now create rich visual effects with CSS Text Shadow, CSS 3D Transforms, CSS3 Transitions and Animations, CSS3 Gradient, and SVG Filter Effects. On the security front, IE10 has the Do Not Track (DNT) feature switched on by default.
This web browser continues to lead in providing increased choice and control over customers’ privacy online. It indicates the company’s commitment to keeping Windows customers in control of their privacy and data sharing continues, especially in the current environment of so much user data being collected online without explicit consent or user awareness.
Microsoft stated that the browser also includes improvements to make common, every day browsing activities faster such as integrated spell checking and auto-correct tools for common spelling mistakes. This makes typing texts for blog posts, social updates, and even tweets "faster and less error prone." A fine-tuned tabs bar also makes closing multiple tabs even earlier.
Microsoft is also offering hardware accelerated demos like the fully-featured HTML5-based Minesweeper, the Chalkboard and Speed Reading. What you won't experience is a face-full of browser UI, but rather the contents within the displayed web page itself. That's on purpose, as Microsoft wants the browser to be a simple window looking out onto the web, not a busy, tacky frame distracting users from the subject.
