Microsoft sneak peaks future IE with dev channel

Gregg Keizer | June 18, 2014
Microsoft on Monday launched a developers' channel of Internet Explorer that will be regularly updated to give website and Web app designers and developers an early look at what the company plans with its browser.

Interestingly, Microsoft pre-empted possible questions about virtualizing other versions of IE in a supporting FAQ. Customers have long wondered why Microsoft doesn't support virtualizing older editions of IE with the App-V client, so that, for instance, enterprises running Windows 8 and IE11 could also run IE8 in a virtualized environment for backwards compatibility with legacy intranet sites and Web apps.

"We have no plans to virtualize older versions of Internet Explorer through App-V Client," Microsoft said in the FAQ. "Instead, we recommend you use the Enterprise Mode feature of Internet Explorer 11."
