Microsoft ships Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 users

The latest tenth version of Microsoft’s popular Internet Explorer web browser has become available to users of Windows 7. Up until now the release was only available for Windows 8.

People interested in running IE 10 on a Windows 7 machine can now download the browser from Microsoft’s web site.

In case you wish to have it as an update prepare to wait for a week – IE 10 will appear on Windows Update next week.

IE 10 has full support for HTML 5 and offers spell checking and the Do Not Track function, which is enabled by default.
