IE11 Release Preview For Windows 7 Available For Download

5

Microsoft has released IE11 Release Preview for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 today.  This may mean the final versions of the browser may launch after the release of Windows 8.1. This release preview included performance improvements making it 30% faster than other browsers, updates to support the latest Web standards, and developer tools improvements

The IE11 Release Preview for Windows 7 includes several tools enhancements to increase developer productivity and in response to the overwhelming enthusiasm and feedback we have received from developers.  Here are just a few of the many improvements:

  • Console:  IE11 makes it easier to debug WebGL content by mapping WebGL errors to the corresponding JavaScript location.  Developer productivity is improved because primitives have been added to Intellisense.  With IE11, developers can debug multi-threaded Web sites with full console access while targeting Web workers.
  • Debugger:  An improved file picker allows faster access to files in a complex Web project.
  • DOM Explorer:  With IE11, developers can tune Web sites more quickly by editing CSS property values and seeing those edits in the Live DOM without having to press the enter key
  • Memory:  To make it easier to narrow down the source of memory leaks, the F12 tool now identifies what operations were performed on allocated data between memory snapshots.

    Look forward to getting it. But really wonder if MS wouldn’t be better off renaming IE instead of trying to rehabilitate the brand after a decade’s worth of negative baggage? Like they did with Hotmail > Outlook.com. They’ve had a little bit of success with the current strategy over the last year, in that IE share is up a couple percentage points. But if they want to gain back significant lost share, like 10%+, I think offering users something branded “new” would be more successful.

    I had to revert to IE10 after downloading the IE11 dev preview for win7, which was incompatible with Flash video or Java SE-Runtime. Hope this version’s compatible with the above applications. Dang-it! I think I’ll wait for final version for win7…
