In the spirit of the holiday season, we offer a new HTML5 experience that makes the most of your PC hardware and the new
touch capabilities in Windows 8.
Check out Let It Snow and get ready for a GPU-powered snow storm. This experience
brings together hardware-accelerated HTML5 canvas, SVG, CSS, and more. On Windows
Developer Preview with support for
multi-touch in IE10, you can reach out and brush the snow off the sign and reveal a holiday message -or just use your mouse. If you think your browser can keep up, kick it up to 1000 snowflakes. If it's more of a flurry than a blizzard, try it with IE9 (or IE10) using the hardware acceleration built into the browser.

Earlier this year we showed the
first look at IE10, which offers more and more of the
site ready HTML5 developers are asking for, so they can build beautiful and interactive Web experiences.
With the Windows Developer Preview, we introduced more
hardware-accelerated HTML5 for building
touch friendly applications on the Web. We’re delighted and amazed by what developers are building on HTML5
and excited to be part of it.
Your participation and feedback is an important part of how we build IE. Today we want to say thank you to everyone
who browses the Web with IE9, downloads the IE10 previews, runs the test drives, and reports issues on
Connect. We also want to thank the people and groups who make the standards process work, the broad community of
Web developers, and enthusiastic consumers who work to move the Web forward.
From the entire IE team, we wish you a Happy Hardware-accelerated Holiday Season, and we look forward to another exciting
year on the Web in 2012.
