With the release preview announced today November 13, 2012, Internet Explorer 10 will finally be available on the mainstream Windows 7 desktop, with pretty much the same face as version 9, that is much different from the metro version of it on Windows 8.
For those who want to test drive, go to this page and download it from the icon sitting in the middle of 3 main choices. There are many languages available supporting both 32-bit and 64-bit version of Windows 7. So pick one that suits you and click download link next to it to start downloading.
Since it’s no longer a test drive version anymore, installation requires a full reboot to take affect. And to be honest, I didn’t find any differences between 9 and 10 after I installed and rebooted my computer. Even the introduction page that usually shows up for the first time user looks exactly the same.
One notable change, as we previously posted, is that IE now will take care of itself in terms of upgrade without human’s interference, which is definitely a welcomed feature that’s been long overdue.
Addition to already exist Pin-to-Taskbar feature, you can now Pin any site to Start Menu, if Start Menu is still your friend after it’s been dumped by Microsoft in Windows 8.
