Download Internet Explorer 10 Preview 1 now

This is obviously not really Windows Phone 7 related but I just wanted to point out that Microsoft has just released the first preview build of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows PCs. The company is going to talk more about the new browser during today’s MIX11 opening keynote which you can watch live here (I’m not expecting a whole lot of WP7 talk today unfortunately).
