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:
- 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.
