Anyone here testing IE10?

Windows Release Preview: The Sixth IE10 Platform Preview [blogs.msdn.com]
This sixth Platform Preview of IE10 delivers improved performance and support for touch-first HTML5, as well as a new power-optimized, touch-friendly Adobe Flash Player that enables content on compatible Web sites to play in the Metro style Web browser. IE10 also sends the “Do Not Track” signal to Web sites by default to help consumers protect their privacy.

More on that decision over at [blogs.technet.com ], where Microsoft's Chief Privacy officer notes:

Of course, we hope that many consumers will see this value and make a conscious choice to share information in order to receive more personalized ad content.

What a ridiculous thing to say.

It's not clear from the comments whether it's going to be available for Windows 7 users.

It's not even clear whether they're going to be interested in desktop machines. ;)

This is how it should have been from the start. Unfortunately a) it will be ignored and b) alternate methods of tracking are in place but at least it sends a strong legal signal that no, not everyone wants to be tracked for "personalized" results. Many in fact see that as an attempt to pry into your wallet and turns them off from "online" altogether.

"IE10 also sends the “Do Not Track” signal to Web sites by default to help consumers protect their privacy."

IE9 + 10 also have active protection under manage, add-ons "tracking protection"

You can use easysitelist or fanboy just like Firefox.

Security is my living and IE9 with the proper tweaks is bullet-proof.
Don't shoot the messenger.

I believe laptops and desktops too will be good to go.
if you follow engine's initial post supplied link to IE 10 preview, and then click on Windows 8 preview
you will see a full size keypad in action.

However, it probably aims more at tablets etc...

Which brings the following question:
Are laptops and desktops dinosaurs?
I so, then I do not imagine writing PHP code from a touch screen not to mention Excel and others.

Why do the XP users even ask... support was dropped for XP after IE 8.

IE 10 will be available for Windows 7:

[msdn.microsoft.com...]
"When it's released, Internet Explorer 10 will be available for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2012."

Hear, hear! Wide-screen devices won't go away because *somebody* needs to develop apps for the little boogers. Even were code-writing entirely feasible (which it's not), detailed pixel-perfect graphics work on a small-screen device would be patently ridiculous.

Too late IE. Firefox/Chrome already killed them.

If that were true Google and Firefox wouldn't be complaining about Metro browser compatibility.

IE 10 will be a nice browser
