Also Windows 7 users will get auto-correct and spell checking, Do Not Track (DNT) feature enabled by default to prevent advertisers from automatically tracking users’ online behaviors, a much improved support for CSS3, HTML5, Web Performance and an number of other web standards. The folks at Redmond also noted: “IE10 delivers a 20% increase in real-world site performance over IE9 making IE10 the fastest modern browser on the market according to third parties.”
The software giant will start pushing the auto upgrade to IE10 in a few weeks, users currently on IE10 Release Preview will be the first to receive the new bits. But, of course, if you don’t want to wait, you can download the latest version with the link below.
Lastly, even though, this version of IE has the same code base as the version of the browser in Windows 8 and Windows RT, Win 7 users will not get the chromeless modern version of the web software.
With the new release Microsoft also unveils its new video promoting the web browser, which highlights the touch support. Also the video suggest users to visit exploretouch.ie, which is a new Microsoft page to demo the touch capability on the browser (but of course it works with the mouse too).
