With a bunch of new features, the team has focused on three main areas:

  • Performance, with a new JavaScript engine (Chakra) and hardware accelerated HTML5
  • Standards  support with HTML5 and CSS3; Canvas and SVG, …
  • New UI, with what we are calling site-centric browsing. This allows you to pin a website to the Windows 7 taskbar, add tags to generate jumplists and add script for icon overlay (for example to notify the user of new messages).
    Facebook Jump List tasks and new content notification

Make sure you read the IE Team blog post on the beta release with loads of good information on the new features of the browser.

After downloading and installing you can then head over to ‘Start Developing’ section of site.
