IE10 to hit Windows 7 in November

The new version of Internet Explorer will also be pre-loaded on machines powered by Windows 8

By CBR Staff Writer

US software maker Microsoft is planning to release a preview of Internet Explorer (IE) 10 for those who are using Windows 7 operating system (OS) in mid-November 2012, which will be followed by the final version shortly after integrating user feedback.

The new version of Internet Explorer browser will also be pre-loaded on PCs powered by Windows 8, which is expected to be launched on 26 October 2012.

Internet Explorer group program manager Rob Mauceri said the new IE 10 browser with Windows 8 offers 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," Mauceri said.

The existing version of Internet Explorer is offered only for Windows Vista and Windows 7, and is not supported by Windows XP, while it had previously been suggested by Microsoft that Internet Explorer 10 will not be offered for Windows Vista, but only for Windows 7 and Windows 8.
