Microsoft shows off Internet Explorer 10 running on 1GHz ARM at MIX developer conference

After painfully long updates between IE6, IE7, and IE8, Internet Explorer 9 was given notice it’s successor is on the way. IE10 will bring CSS3 support, HTML5 support, and a few W3C APIs.

Typical for Microsoft, they were pretty tight lipped about the future of IE except to take a potshot at Chrome (and also Firefox) nothing that faster cadence (releasing more versions more often) does NOT mean more progress. True, but ideally it means more frequent security updates so…

The amazing thing about this preview was that IE10 (and therefore the version of Windows 7 running on the demo rig) was written to run on ARM. Exciting news.
