Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) Preview for Windows 7 Coming in November 2012

We all know that Windows 8 comes with a new version of Internet Explorer which is IE10. It comes with many new features, improvements and a few UI changes. But it was not available to any other Windows version such as Windows XP, Vista or 7.

Today Microsoft has officially announced that Internet Explorer 10 will also be released for Windows 7. A preview version (most probably beta) of IE10 for Windows 7 will be released in mid-November so that people can test it and can provide feedback to Microsoft. It'll help Microsoft in fixing bugs and issues before the final release of the browser.

Once the testing completes, the final RTM version of IE10 will release. According to Microsoft, IE10 on Windows 7 has the same standards based platform for developers to target as IE10 on Windows 8. IE10 was developed as 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.


UPDATE: IE10 RTM has been released and available for download. You can download it using following link:

  • This is good news.

    IE 9.0.10 (KB2744842) was cobbled together to address recent security concerns and, in the process, is rather unstable. Since installing it, the old PITA "urlmon.dll" throws repeated fits on two of my systems.

    I hope IE 10 is all it's supposed to be.If it really improves that much on the pretty solid IE 9, then there'll be something to cheer about.

  • woohoo IE10 (i call it IE X)!! cant wait to get it when it comes out!! btw will it appear on Windows Update?

  • VG

    ^^ The preview version will not appear on Windows Update but the final RTM version will definitely appear.

  • Sorry to say this, but this won't be a BETA as you call it, but like last year, a Test Preview Build! Not less, not much!
