Microsoft Ships Second Pre-release Preview of IE10 for Devs

Microsoft has recently released a new Internet Explorer 10 preview. This is the second pre-release of Microsoft’s proprietary software that is designed especially for developers to check the innards of the software before the final build ships with the new Microsoft OS or is available for download to all users.

The new version of Internet explorer has support for drag and drop, form validation, positioning of page elements and much more. Microsoft has also provided a number of demo sites for the devs to check the new capabilities of IE10.
According to Microsoft's corporate vice president in charge of IE10, Dean Hachamovitch, the IE10 platform preview has support for several HTML5 technologies. Like most of the others, Microsoft is obviously using HTML5 as an umbrella term which includes other standards like JavaScript and CSS.
The preview also includes better hardware acceleration which squeezes from your graphics-processing unit. What this means is that developers can create rich, interactive websites.
Microsoft has also beefed up the security, supporting HTML5 Sandbox and iframe isolation.
