The presence of a zero day security flaw in Internet Explorer 10 and Internet Explorer 9 has caught the attention of Microsoft, which decided to release a temporary patch rather than let it loom until next month's Patch Tuesday.

Didn't Microsoft just unveil Internet Explorer 9 a few months ago? Sure feels like it, but it's never to soon to start thinking about what's next, right? Right! At MIX 11 this week in Las Vegas, Microsoft revealed a preview build of IE10, despite the fact that IE9 just left beta months ago. What's new with Internet Explorer 10? Well, for one, it won't run on Vista, so it's clear that Microsoft is intent with moving beyond an OS that many felt was underwhelming.
