Today is the one month anniversary of the launch of Microsoft's Internet Explorer 10 web browser for Windows 7. While Microsoft is apparently already working on IE11 for Windows Blue, the company is still revealing more information on how IE10 has been designed with new features.
One of those new additions is a way for IE10 to more accurately reflect the historical Daylight Saving Time standard in the web browser. In a new post on the IE blog, Microsoft claims IE10 is the first web browser to include these new features based on the revisions to section 188.8.131.52 of the ECMAScript 6 draft specification. The blog adds:
Microsoft does note that some parts of the world have never used Daylight Savings Time. If they want to run the Exploring Historic Dates demo, those users should switch their PC's time zone to one where DST is used, such as Pacific Standard Time, and then rerun the web browser demo.
