Preview offers the same HTML5 engine as Win8 demo

Microsoft has released its second Internet Explorer 10 platform preview, which is said to utilize the same HTML5 engine as the company's recent Windows 8 demos. Developers can take advantage of several new technologies, including CSS3 Positioned Floats, HTML5 drag-drop, File Reader API, Media Query Listeners and support for HTML5 forms.

The release is also claimed to bring general performance improvements to all HTML5 applications, while also enhancing resource efficiency for lower power consumption. Security is said to be improved via HTML5 Sandbox for iframe isolation.

IE10 Platform Preview 2 is now available to download directly from the company.
