Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7

The latest version of IE for Windows 7 users is now available.

Microsoft have today released Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 users.

The browser has been available to Windows 8 users since the release of that operating system, but developmental delays have prevented a release for users of the older operating system. Windows Vista users will not be able to upgrade beyond IE9 and Windows XP users cannot upgrade beyond IE8.


Rival Google released Chrome 25 just last week, so comparisons are already being made.

Microsoft claims that IE10 on Windows 7 improves performance 20% with faster “real world” page loading, faster interactivity and faster JavaScript performance, while reducing CPU usage and improving battery life on mobile PCs. Microsoft also boast of automatic spell-checking, which has been a feature of most other browsers for quite some time.

For developers, Microsoft list the following improvements:

Microsoft Internet Explorer will be pushed out to all Windows 7 users via Windows Update, or can be installed manually from the official website.
