Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 4
Check out the next version of Microsoft's web browser with Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 4

Hot on the tail of Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft has released a preview version of Internet Explorer 10. This pre-release software showcases some of the features there are to look forward to in the browser including greatly improved support for CSS3 components such as grid alignment, gradient backgrounds, multi-column layouts and more, as well as far better support for HTML 5.

The platform preview of Internet Explorer 10 can only be installed on Windows 7, both 32- and 64-bit versions, and there are plenty of exciting new features to explorer. While features such as code-based background gradients are only going to really be of interest to coders - although it does mean that site visitors can benefit from faster loading pages - features such as flowing content between multiple columns shows great promise for customisable web pages.

Hardware acceleration will ultimately allow for web pages that are far more visually impressive without the need for reams of slow, inefficient code. As much of the hard work can be placed on the computer visiting web sites, web designers are free to be more adventurous without worrying about performance.

This is obviously very early code for the browser, but things are shaping up well. If you like to be at the cutting edge of technology, this is an essential installation, but it is worth remembering that this is far from being finished software and it is not really suitable for use as a main browser. While IE 10 can be used as a browser, the current preview version does not feature any toolbar buttons, so accessing program options and features such as the address bar means having to navigate through menus.

Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 4 is the fourth public preview of the IE10 web platform. This preview release includes support for major platform features like Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS), improvements to the Web Worker developer experience, File API, top level Quirks mode emulation and more.

Verdict:

An interesting glimpse of things to come, but Internet Explorer 10 has a long way to go - a program that is still worth checking out, however.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
