        Internet Explorer Developer Channel provides a sneak peek at Internet Explorer as it's being developed. It can run alongside and independently of IE11, and has all of the browser features that you love in IE11, as well as the latest platform features we’re working on. This version supports new platform features like WebDriver API, GamePad API, F12 Developer Tools improvements, and WebGL improvements. As you test drive these features, make sure to give us feedback through @IEDevChat or Connect. Although this release is designed 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 IE as development progresses.
