Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 released today

Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7. Initially a browser reserved for Windows 8, it’s good to see that it’s made it to Windows 7.

More good news, courtesy of Martin Beeby – a web developer evangelist at Microsoft:

Just incase you were wondering… IE9 User will be automatically updated to IE10 starting in March.

Internet Explorer has come a long way since IE6 and, to some extent, IE7. Mandatory browser updates ensure that the monumental problems for web designers IE6 caused will (hopefully) never happen again.

Speaking of browser testing, I actually find more problems when testing new sites in Firefox than I do in Internet Explorer. I’m genuinely excited to download this later on my Windows VM to see what it’s like.
