Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 Is Finally Available for Download

By Leslie Horn on at

Windows 7 users are finally getting Internet Explorer 10. They'll be auto-upgraded in a few weeks, but you can go ahead and download the updated browser starting today.

So what's new on this version of IE 10? Microsoft promises improved JavaScript performance, better battery life for mobile PCs, integrated spell-check and auto-correct, and a much faster and more stable experience. The interface isn't the fullscreen look you get in Windows 8 — it's basically the same as it was with IE 9.

And if you are still a Windows 7 user, you've had to wait for a while. Windows 8 has had IE 10 since October, but Microsoft apparently wanted to wait until the release was totally ready. Patience eventually pays off. [Microsoft via CNET]
