Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 10 preview for Windows 7

Microsoft has officially released Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7. The preview build of the IE10 browser can be downloaded today, with the final build launching some time next year.

Those interested in giving IE10 for Windows 7 a try can download the preview here.

On the official IE blog, Rob Mauceri, Group Program Manager, Internet Explorer says, “IE10 on Windows 7 has the same standards based platform for developers to target as IE10 on Windows 8. We built an entirely new browser with Windows 8, with more performance and developer capabilities. IE10 brings improved real-world site performance and additional standards support to Windows 7 that Web developers have been asking for. We look forward to getting your feedback on IE10 on Windows 7, and will provide another update when the preview is available.”

IE10 was originally designed for Windows 8 with touchscreens and tablets in mind and it will be interesting to see how the new browser translates on Windows 7.

IE10 claims to bring with it a bunch of new features such as a faster and more fluid browsing experience, more interpolated HTML5 support, rich visual effects, enhanced web programming model, privacy with “Do not track” on by default and an overall smoother browsing experience. You can read the complete features of the IE10 on the official Microsoft IE blog here.
