Internet Explorer 10, the default browser of Windows 8 is now available for Windows 7 users too. All the Windows 7 users will be auto upgraded to IE10 in the coming weeks if they have Windows Update enabled. The update will be first pushed to IE10 Release Preview users.
 
Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 includes improved JavaScript performance, integrated spell checking, auto-correction, improved support for web standards like the latest CSS3, and a focus on battery life improvements for mobile PCs. The user interface in IE10 for Windows 7 is largely the same as IE9.

And Windows 8 is getting IE11...

Windows 7 users will still have to depend upon Chrome and Firefox for experiencing the latest technology on the web.

Feel free to pass on this update while others install it  :)

 

That said, I think we can agree that Chrome and Firefox will both still be updated far more frequently than IE.

Don't get too excited though. Your browser is still behind.

Agreed!

Thats the attitude of a beggar in the street

Thats not the point. The point is how MS support its product (W7), or rather uses new technology (IE11) to force new products (W8) up to its customers.

Nothing new here but I don't like it.

Wow. Not like any other technology company ever also does that.  :rolleyes:

 

You can continue to cry more, but there always will be one platform lagging behind the other. You choose to remain behind on Windows 7. Microsoft didn't.

I believe Safari on OSX shares the same story. Anyway, as of now, Internet Explorer on both Windows 7/8 are on par with each other. The latest technology is available on both the old and the new. I'd say Microsoft has shown good commitment Windows 7.

Downloaded and installed successfully  but I don't know why it won't run. I am still trying to find the culprit.

 

Edit:

It needs unpatched system files... I had to revert to the orginal files as patched by windows 7 visual style (theme). So if you used 7tsp, resource hacker, etc. IE 10 will fail and refuses to run.
