Microsoft has shoved in a new build of IE10 with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview

The Windows 8 Consumer Preview isn't the only new software release coming from Microsoft today. The company also announced the availability of Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 5 (say that five times fast).
 
Like Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10 is optimized for touch and fully supports HTML5. Internet Explorer 10 also adopts the Metro interface that is used in both Windows 8 and Windows Phone to provide a rich, fluid full screen experience for users.

 
Microsoft is also quick to point out that the Metro version of Internet Explorer 10 will be plug-in free, so you won't have to worry about installing Adobe Flash or any other plugins to view web contact.
 
"To deliver the richest experience, and one experience that scales across different devices, we continue to recommend that developers detect when plug-ins are not available and rely on native browser patterns," said Dean Hachamovitch, Corporate Vice President for Internet Explorer.
 
You can try out Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 5 in the Windows 8 Customer Preview. Or if you'd just like to catch a quick glimpse of what's new, you can watch this video clip.
