Microsoft now offers to download the new Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 users. So far, only the new Windows 8 operating system launched last October was entitled to the new version of Microsoft’s flagship browser, Internet Explorer 10. Now, this is also the case for Windows 7.
The IE10 for Windows 7 edition adopts an interface similar to Windows 8 for the office, and is therefore very close to Internet Explorer 9.
In addition, IE10 for Windows 7 exploits the capabilities of the GPU for graphics rendering Web pages and features the Do Not Track enabled by default.
In contrast, Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 does not carry Flash Player by default. Adobe ActiveX control is still necessary and updates Flash Player can therefore pass through Windows Update.
