Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 10 preview for Windows 7

Windows 8 and Windows RT ship with the Internet Explorer 10 web browser, and Windows Phone 8 handsets have a mobile version of the same browser. But up until now there’s been no way to use Microsoft’s newest web browser on Windows 7.

While it will still be a little while before Microsoft officially launches IE10 for Windows 7, you can now download a preview version from Microsoft Test Drive site.

Internet Explorer 10

Internet Explorer 10 is available for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Window s7, as well as Windows Server 2008.

The new browser includes better support for HTML5, CSS3 and other web standards. It also adds support for a full-screen mode and for touch-based navigation, which should make it a better option than IE9 on Windows 7 tablets or other computers with touchscreen displays.

The Do Not Track feature is also turned on by default, alerting websites that support the standard not to track users’ personal data.
