IE9 Has Hidden IE10 Upgrade Box

Written by Alan Sunday, 20 March 2011 02:02

Internet Explorer 9 has been out for less than a week and here we go already talking IE10.  While IE9 has been met with largely positive feedback from around the web, everyone is always intrigued by the next thing.  In recent days we have seen leaks of Windows 8 and Office 15, but now the talk centers around a hidden dialogue box that was found within IE9.  Rumors suggest that Windows 8 will come with Internet Explorer 10 pre-installed.

According to an interesting finding by an avid reader of AskVJ, when he was investigating various IE9 files using a win32 resource viewer and modifying tool called Resource Hacker, he opened ieframe.dll.mui and found a secret dialog box which shows that Internet Explorer 10 is available for download.

Unlike the leaked screenshots of Windows 8 and Office 15, this one you can verify for yourself.  You will need to install Resource Hacker and then follow the instructions provided in the AskVJ link previously mentioned.
