Microsoft has revealed that IE10 will be coming to Windows 7 and 8 next month.
The iconic browser will first be released as a preview version in mid-November followed by a final release shortly after once the company has had time to process and implement any developer or user-requested changes.
Group Product Manager for Internet Explorer Rob Mauceri made the announcement via blog post earlier today. He pointed out that IE10 for Windows 7 has the same standards based platform for developers that will be found in the Windows 8 version of the browser. He highlighted the fact that the browser was built with performance and developer capabilities in mind – key traits that will also make the cut for Windows 7.
Internet Explorer 10 has been in development for some time now. It was first shown to the general public more than a year ago at the MIX web developer and designer conference. At that time, it was revealed that Microsoft was only about three weeks into the development of IE10.
