More Information

Internet Explorer Developer Channel provides a sneak peek at the Internet Explorer features that are being developed. Internet Explorer Developer Channel can run alongside and independently of Internet Explorer 11. It has all the browser features that you love in Internet Explorer 11, and the latest platform features that Microsoft is working on. 

This version supports new platform features, such as WebDriver API, GamePad API, F12 Developer Tools improvements, and WebGL improvements. When you test these features, you can share feedback with us through @IEDevChat or Connect.

Note Although this release is 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 Internet Explorer as development progresses.
