Microsoft updates their IE feature development status with three new features

The new Microsoft has ushered in a new era of transparency across different product developments. One of those more transparent products is Internet Explorer, and Microsoft has been very open about what they are working on implementing into IE. The next version of IE is looking to be more compliant than ever and developers can see the new additions today.

Today Microsoft has outlined three different areas where they are improving IE, and the first area involves HiDPI images on devices. Essentially a device can notify a website of its DPI and the website can choose to display an image which corresponds to the DPI. This technology is called image srcset and is currently in development by the IE team. The second tool is date controls which are HTML 5 compliant. This feature provides the user with an appropriate date picker which is consistent and easy to implement by developers. The final feature is including the

HTML5 element into IE. This will allow HTML5 websites to render more accurately with the developer’s intent in mind.

What are your thoughts on these new improvements? Let us know in the comments section below.
