We’ve seen major improvements coming to Internet Explorer such as speed, web standards support, tools for developers, new modern version of the web browser for Windows 8, which shines on touch-enabled devices, and many more. But this week Microsoft is also launching the Developer Channel version of Internet Explorer, designed exclusively for developers and fans to test drive the latest changes, features, and improvements the company is planing for IE 12 and future releases. If this sounds familiar it is because Google and Mozilla already do something similar with their web browser: Chrome and Firefox.
Internet Explorer Developer Channel (described as DC1 without an actual version number) is available immediately for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1, Microsoft is even offering the x86 and x64 versions of the web browser, which can run alongside Internet Explorer 11 already in the system.
Other changes include enhancements to the F12 Developer Tools to help programmers code better web applications. WebDriver standard for developers to write tests to automate web browsers for site testing purposes, and WebGL improvements to add more performance and support for instancing extension.
