Internet Explorer So, have you installed Internet Explorer 9 yet on your Windows machine? No? Well, feel assured in the knowledge that at MIX11 today, Microsoft announced Internet Explorer 10, while also pushing out the very first preview release. Also, IE10 (can I call it IEX? Can I? Can I?) was demonstrated running on Windows for ARM.

Even if you don't need it, you'll still end up saving power and better utilizing the hardware on lower power devices.

Battery life of my computer with the GPU turned off : 3h10
Battery life of my computer with the GPU turned on and idle : 1h40

Talk about power savings...

Anyway, do you really expect web developers to stay still with their current designs, while browsers offer much more power ? I'd rather say : prepare for the second coming of animated backgrounds and Flash websites. Those who have a powerful computer will see it smoothly and just rant about the reduced battery life, but the others will suffer.
