IE10 may get a new test build for Windows 7 soon

Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 is still alive, Microsoft officials confirmed. And another test build is coming in November.

October 17, 2012 12:00 PM PDT

 

It's been almost a year and a half since Microsoft released a test build of Internet Explorer (IE) 10 forWindows 7. Since that time, Microsoft officials have refused to comment as to why there were no further builds or when a final version of IE10 for Windows 7 would be available.

On October 17, there was finally a ray of hope for those IE10 loyalists wanting Microsoft's latest browser on Windows 7. In an IEBlog post, Microsoft officials said a new preview of IE10 for Windows 7 would be out some time in November 2012.

Microsoft delivered its most recent preview of IE10 for Windows 7 in June 2011.

There's no updated word as to when the final IE10 for Windows 7 will be out. But at least there's finally official confirmation the product is still alive.

A leaked Microsoft roadmap from late last year led some of us to believe Microsoft was planning to deliver IE10 for Windows 7 at the same time as IE10 for Windows 8 was released to manufacturing. But that turned out not to be the case.

IE10 for Windows 8 will be generally available on October 26, as it is built into Windows 8.

Update: This just in from my ZDNet colleague Ed Bott: The coming November preview is a full browser with the UI. This isn't just another developer preview, according to Microsoft officials.

This item first appeared on ZDNet's All About Microsoft blog under the headline "Microsoft commits to a new preview test build of IE10 for Windows 7 in November."

IE10 Coming To Windows 7 In November With Improved Performance

The general availability of Windows 8 is getting closer and closer. Even though Microsoft is focused on this new OS, it hasn't forgotten about users who won't upgrade right away. Windows 7 users who want to get their hands on IE10 will have the option to do so: Microsoft plans to release a preview of IE10 in mid-November. Final availability of IE10 will follow as the company collects developer and customer feedback.

IE10 on Windows 7 will have the same standards based platforms as IE10 on Windows 8. This browser is said to be 8% faster than Chrome 20, making it the fastest browser on the market according to Strangeloop. IE10 also supports additional standards that Web developers have asked for.

Although Microsoft can claim to have the fastest browser, IE10 currently has a very small market share since it's only available to those who have Windows 8 installed. Since a small minority of users actually has access to this browser, we're glad to see Microsoft will expand the availability of IE10.

I think we can all agree that if you had IE, Chrome, and Firefox open and went to load the same page simultaneously, each browser would load it in basically the same time give or take a few hundred milliseconds. They need to focus on standards adoption, trimming memory usage, and getting Flash and Java the hell out of existence in favor of something which isn't 15 years old.

Fantastic post, black_zion. What needs to be fixed is the memory usage--it's absolutely ridiculous for all three major browsers right now. It's not as noticeable on decent machine, but I have a slightly older laptop, and I shouldn't need 1.5GB to comfortable browse the internet. What a joke!
