Internet Explorer 10 Release Preview available for Windows 7

A week ago Microsoft released Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 users. While still not in its final version, the browser is served as a Release Preview in 32 bit and 64 bit form.

Initially Microsoft released Internet Explorer 10 only for Windows 8 as part of it. Being directly integrated into the system, many users have questioned Microsoft’s decision not to make the 10th version of the browser also available for Windows 7 a year ago. As a consequence to this, it was imminent the Windows 7 version to be available in this period of the year.

At a first look, the Release Preview of Internet Explorer 10 is nearly identical to the version of the browser integrated into the Windows 8. The only core difference is that Adobe Flash is not integrated into the Windows 7 / Windows Server 2012 version like it is in the Windows 8 version. The reason of having a built-in version of Adobe Flash into Windows 8 version of IE 10 is that the browser does not support browser plugins.

In case you want to try out the browser in Windows 7, you should know that the installation of Internet Explorer 10 Preview will replace the current version of the browser on the system. A restart will be required to complete the installation. If you are not satisfied with its functionality, you can uninstall it from the Updates panel of your operating system.

Are you a fan of unfinished/test software? Head over to Internet Explorer 10

Almost four weeks have passed since the release of Internet Explorer 9 and Microsoft pushes out already, a preview build of Internet Explorer 10. Believe it or not but there is already a version which can be downloaded but it’s of course very much a preview release and is not recommended for anything except for the sake of testing.

According to Dean Hachamovitch – corporate vice president of Internet Explorer, Microsoft is only three weeks into Internet Explorer 10 development, but comfortable enough – they are showing off what they were building so far. Hachamovitch also said that Internet Explorer 10 will focus on HTML5 – the next-level programming language for the Internet browsing. On the IE Test Drive website, there is a demo showing the new features in action, highlighting 3D transforms, flexible layouts and gradients and quite a few more features. Hachamovitch also said that Internet Explorer 10 continues on IE 9 path, directly using what Windows provides and avoiding abstractions, layers and libraries that slow down your site and your experience.

We’re not sure how IE10 is going to be in the end but still, I believe that IE9 is a good start. On the other hand, Chrome 12 is already in beta phrase and Mozilla’s Firefox 5 have already been announced so the browser battle continues which is, of course, only in our benefits. If you’d like to try out this very early release of IE10, you can download a copy from IE Test Drive website.
