Details have emerged about the nature of Internet Explorer 5.0, understood to be almost identical with Windows NT 5.0. The product, given in its preliminary beta versions to select developers and press, will use a multimedia rich approach to deliver 3D effects, according to one developer today. Intel and Microsoft are understood to be collaborating closely on the design, with the strong possibility that Katmai announcements -- expected in the next seven hours -- will leverage software in the labs. Extra instruction sets and a roadmap will be announced in the US then. Other software majors and minors are understood to be rallying behind the interface. But a source close to Intel told The Register today that he doubted if anyone would see NT 5.0 before the year 2000 dawned. That also left IE 5.0 in the same pickle, he suggested. Microsoft could not be contacted at press time. ®
