Microsoft Claims Internet Explorer 11 For Win7 Is 30% Faster Than Rivals
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Microsoft claims the new browser isn’t all about performance and they’ve improved compatibility with new standards. They also claim the browser is optimised for anything – the mouse, the keyboard, the pen or a touch screen.
“IE11 Release Preview for Windows 7 includes updates to reflect the latest emerging Web standards. For example, now that the Pointer Events specification is a Candidate Recommendation at the W3C, IE11 supports an un-prefixed version of the emerging standard. With Pointer Events support across the full range of Windows devices (and soon to other browsers), Web sites can easily build experiences that work equally well with mouse, keyboard, pen, and touch.
IE11 Release Preview for Windows 7 adds new user controls for the Standard Delivery Profile for Closed Captioning. With the new control, accessible from the Internet Options menu, users can customize how captions appear in the browser, even overriding the default styling provided by the video source. This customization further advances IE11 as the best browser for professional-quality online video without plugins.”
