Download Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7. A new browser for a new Windows
Microsofts new version of Internet Explorer might just be a serious competitor to Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome again.
The browser comes with an auto-update feature that keeps it up to date during Microsoft's monthly patch-day and clocks in faster than its predecessor.
Internet Explorer 10 has significantly increased its speed: in our test system it mastered SunSpider-Benchmark tasks in 153,2 milliseconds on average; with 221,1 milliseconds on the clock, Internet Explorer 9 takes significantly longer on the same system. It's the same picture in the allround test Peacekeeper: here, Internet Explorer 10 reaches 1.875 points but its predecessor manages just 1,613 points.
Note: Internet Explorer 10 overwrites previous versions installed on your machine.
Verdict: Although the user interface has remained the same, Microsoft has significantly improved the performance of Internet Explorer for version 10.
