Internet Explorer 10 Now Available for Windows 7

Till today IE 10 was available only for Windows 8. Everything changes, after Microsoft rolls out IE 10 for Windows 7 in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors.

To install the IE 10 you must have Service Pack 1, but in any case the auto-update process will happen over the few next weeks.

The update brings some significant changes to the browser like improved JavaScript performance and apparently improved battery life for laptop users. There is also integrated spell checking and auto-correct functions and supports for more web standards like the new CSS3.

Internet Explorer 10 has the same design-wise as IE 9. There are some disadvantages in this version if to compare with the same version on Window 8. It wouldn’t have full-screen browsing and metro-style interface.
