Internet Explorer 10 has finally arrived on Windows 7. It was initially rolled out for Windows 8, but today that has changed. This update has also brought some significant changes that improves user experience, such changes include speedier loading, a more stable system, Chakra and Java Script search engines, and Touch API.
The general manager for Internet Explorer, Ryan Gavin, explained to CNET in a recent phone call, “Gone are the days when developers aspire to build for the lowest common denominator. The way the Web becomes like an application is when you take advantage of the latest hardware. We’ve stopped the era of trying to maximize for aggregate browser share. One of the things that we hear from developers is that the depth and support across IE 10 means less time testing and more time developing.”
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) also reported the new specs for Internet Explorer 10, which is nothing short of impressive like HTML5 and CSS3 enhancements. The company also said this new browser is about twenty percent faster on Windows 7, when compared to the previous generation IE9. It’s also about sixty percent more standards-compliant. And with features like CSS Text Shadow, CSS 3D Transforms, CSS3 Transitions and Animations, SVG Filter Effects, HTML5 forms, CSS3 Gradient, input controls, validation,HTML5 Sandboxing, web sockets, and more. These improvements meant HTML5 websites will work on Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 operating systems.
