IE 10 Sneak Preview

IE 9 just shipped to a decent amount of acclaim, and already Microsoft is talking about IE 10. As it did with IE 9, the drum beating begins with what Microsoft calls a "Platform Preview." This really isn't an alpha or beta -- it simply doesn't have enough features to justify either term.

While there really isn't an IE 10 UI yet (at least for public consumption), developers can play with CSS 3 and see the new gradient backgrounds that CSS 3 and HTML 5 enable.

Microsoft says it will release a new preview every three months as it builds towards an actual alpha. Me, I'll wait for at least the beta.

Reports have it that IE 10 won't run on Vista, which for most of us sure ain't a problem.
