Internet Explorer for Windows 7 has been finally released by Microsoft team. This latest version of IE 10 was available only in Windows 8 and only the beta version could be tried out in Windows 7.
The look and feel of Internet Explorer has now completely changed and now looks more or like Google Chrome. This version of IE10 in Windows 7 is definitely more faster than the predecessor. There are two versions of IE10, one for x86(32bit) and other x64(64bit) and is available on Windows 7 with SP1.
Even though Microsoft is claiming a speed boost of 20% from IE9, it has to be tested out by users whether this claim stands true or not. Internet Explorer 10 has major focus on HTML5 and also comes with a feature called DNT (Do Not Track) for users concerned over privacy. In HTML5 test, IE10 scores 320 and 6bonus points but stands long back behind Chrome 24’s score of 448 with 13 bonus points.
