While these are huge additions that bring IE10 close to HTML5 parity with Firefox and Chrome, remember that this is just a developer preview. Preview 2 isn’t suitable for everyday use — but you can use it to try out the huge number of new showcase tests and benchmarks on the IE Test Drive site.
The main take-away from this release, though is that we now know that Microsoft is matching the same release cadence of the IE9. This means, if we have the same number of preview and beta releases, that the final build of IE10 will be released around April 2012. Now, combine this with the confirmation that IE10 PP2 is the browser that powered the first public demos of Windows 8, and you have a release date for Windows 8: April 2012.
We’ll have more coverage of IE10′s new features over the next few days. In the mean time, if you’re a developer, MSDN now has a complete list of the features available in IE10.
