Internet Explorer Developer Channel

Welcome to Internet Explorer Developer Channel

Internet Explorer Developer Channel provides a sneak peek at Internet Explorer as it's being developed. It does not include all the features that will eventually exist in the next version of Internet Explorer. Features will be added and removed, and many bugs will be introduced, found, and resolved throughout development. Although these releases are designed to help developers understand the direction being taken during development, the Developer Channel releases are not stable versions of Internet Explorer. You should not target applications or websites to any of the Developer Channel releases. In the future, we will release a stable "beta" testing version of IE as development progresses.
