Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 10 browser for Windows 8 will offer more foundational capabilities to developers, says the software maker.
These capabilities – included in the latest IE10 preview for developers – are what developers building native applications depend on, Mauceri said in a blog post.
With this fourth Platform Preview, developers can start working with more site-ready HTML5 technologies, said Mauceri.
“This is a common pattern developers use to bring data and services together from different applications,” said Mauceri.
CORS can be used along with XMLHttpRequest, the file API and HTML5 progress control to deliver a smooth experience for uploading multiple files to a service on another domain, said Mauceri.
IE10 will be available at launch to users of Windows 7 or later. Microsoft is expected to launch a wider preview programme in 2012.
Microsoft claims IE10 will offer further hardware acceleration and build on the compatibility and web fidelity trends Microsoft established in IE9.
