Microsoft backdates IE10 for Windows 7

Microsoft has issued forth version 10 of its Internet Explorer web browser for machines running Windows 7.

The updated release offers all the things that you might expect from a web browser and Microsoft said that it is loading webpages faster and dealing with Java better and, heck, it’s probably even fetching your slippers for you.

Internet Explorer 10 is available worldwide in 95 languages for download today. We will begin auto updating Windows 7 customers to IE10 in the weeks ahead, starting today with customers running the IE10 Release Preview. With this final release, IE10 brings the same leading standards support, with improved performance, security, privacy, reliability that consumers enjoy on Windows 8, to Windows 7 customers,” said a breathless blog post from Rob Mauceri, group programme manager for Internet Explorer.

“As with Windows 8, IE10 on Windows 7 improves performance across the board with faster page loading, faster interactivity, and faster Javascript performance, while reducing CPU usage and improving battery life on mobile PCs.”

A demo of Minesweeper - yes, that Minesweeper - is offered as an example of the capabilities of this, the tenth incarnation of Microsoft’s web browser.

To Microsoft this is about a “better web” and it claims that IE10 should appeal to developers and users alike. The blog promises a more respecting and privacy aware environment – Do Not Track is enabled, for example – and a richer playground for HTML5 developers.

Mauceri said that IE10 has a 60 percent increase in support for web standards, including 30 not adopted in IE9.

Microsoft’s decision to backport IE10 to Windows 7 seems to be an implicit acknowledgement that Windows 8 is not seeing takeup that’s as rapid and widespread as it hoped.
