Internet Explorer 10 comes to Windows 7

Internet Explorer 10 is now available to download for Windows 7. The browser, which has been running on Windows 8 since its launch in October 2012, is a significant improvement over what Windows 7 currently offers.

The update will launch in 95 different languages globally from today. It appears similar to Internet Explorer 9 but Microsoft promises a 20 per cent speed upgrade with the app, as well as an increased number of web standards supported.

Internet Explorer 10 is as stripped back as ever and designed to bring content to the fore of the browsing experience. It is more HTML 5 focused and as up-to-date a browser as Microsoft has to offer. It also is a touch more secure than Internet Explorer 9.

Updating to Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 is pretty straightforward. Just head over to Microsoft's download page and you're away. Alternatively, Google Chrome and the latest versions of Safari and Firefox all support HTML 5 just as well; the differences are in the design.
