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.

What I don't understand is why all browsers tend to copy the new kid on the block, ie Chrome.

After Opera deciding that only morons would want pinned tabs to retain their width, not shrink to the favicon and not shift to the left (which behavior we've had for years) and that the best thing to do would be to copy Chrome, now it's Firefox copying its crazily fast-moving version numbering scheme.

FF 3.0 came almost three years before 4.0 and now, there are three major-numbered versions planned for just this year, and that's besides version 4.0 ... wow.

I don't think it's certain that the next 3 releases will be called 5, 6, and 7. They might end up being 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 for all we know.
