Microsoft Brings Internet Explorer 10 Preview To Windows 7 PCs

Sarah Perez

Ventura Computer Repair Services

As assured last month, Microsoft today expanded access to its Internet Explorer 10 web browser, by debuting a preview of IE 10 for Windows 7. Previously, IE 10 was only obtainable on Windows 8. The update contains the same standards-based platform that Ventura Computer Repair Services Windows 8 users received, says Microsoft, including support for touch, a full screen user interface, security improvements, and support for HTML5 and CSS3.

The update will also send the “Do Not Track” signal to websites, also now supported by the latest version of Google Chrome, which is meant to allow customers to guard their privacy by opting out of having online advertisers and websites track their movements for the purpose of sending them targeted ads. That option, however, is somewhat unsuccessful in its current form as it requires websites and services to answer to the DTR requests appropriately. Yahoo, particularly, said it would not upkeep DTR, despite being partners with Microsoft, where the option was switched on by Ventura Computer Repair Services default. (Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari have it shut off).

Microsoft took the time in today’s official announcement to further press the issue, saying:

Microsoft’s consumers have been clear that they want more control over how their personal information is used online.  While “Do Not Track” is a technology solution that’s still in its developmental stages, it holds the promise of giving people greater choice and control of their privacy as they browse the Web.

The link above points to a lengthy post from Brad Smith, Microsoft’s General Counsel & EVP, Legal & Corporate Affairs, which sets forth the case as to why Microsoft wants to make DTR a web standard, adopted by the W3C.

However, outside of the DTR controversy, the majority of IE 10′s features will be welcome new additions or upgrades. Microsoft took the time to highlight Ventura Computer Repair Services some of the technical underpinnings in the browser, including improved hardware acceleration, the Chakra JavaScript engine, improved HTML5 support, and more. Browser performance test results were also highlighted.

Although the world is rapidly shifting to mobile, IE still holds a top spot in desktop browser share. According to Net Applications, IE has 54.1% of the desktop market, ahead of Firefox, Chrome and Safari. Other browser tracking services, which analyze data differently, have seen Chrome overtake IE in months past, though. And on mobile, Safari leads.
