Microsoft launches new Minesweeper website as IE10 benchmark

@ 2013/02/27
Microsoft finally launched the Windows 7 version of its Internet Explorer 10 web browser on Tuesday, and with that launch comes a new way to test out how the browser handles intensive HTML5-based sites. It's also happens to be a new take on the classic work time killer game Minesweeper.

Microsoft's IE blog has the details on the Minesweeper game-benchmark that can be checked out as part of the company's IE Test Drive site. The site uses a number of elements, including HTML5, CSS3, WOFF and more that are designed specifically to test modern web browser performance. Microsoft says it was made to work best with web browsers that support hardware acceleration.
