Microsoft on Wednesday announced that the next version of Internet Explorer will come with at least these four new features: Web Audio, Media Capture, ES6 Promises, and HTTP/2. The technology major states that the list of new features is not an exhaustive one.
Microsoft states in a blog post that it is looking at the Web as a holistic platform that “should just work for everyone – users, developers and businesses.” By this vision the company hopes to make a case for interoperability. Adding to it the company wants to “encourage pragmatism than always standing on a narrow principle.”
The company lists the following top priorities for the future: getting more users to use the latest version of the Internet Explorer, improving security, and adopting backwards capability and interoperability.
Moreover, Microsoft highlighted that status.modern.ie, first showed at Build 2014 conference last month, was coming out of beta and these are the improvements.
- Open Sourced – The entire site and the data backing it is available on GitHub under the Apache V2 license.
- Improved Search & Filter: The new “Interop” menu lets you easily enter in your browser support interests to find available features.
- Deep Linking – via HTML5 History and Angular routing, the site now enables you to deep link to a feature you want to share with others.
- Better Mobile Support & Performance – Looking at the increase in the use of smartphones, the company has optimized the website further to ensure developers can get at the latest browser status details on the go.
We are eager to see what Microsoft does with the next version of Internet Explorer.
