Microsoft on Tuesday released Internet Explorer 10 to new users running Windows 7 OS on their computers, hoping the latest version of its browser will win back customers who have migrated to Google Chrome.
The move will bring the IE10 browser to over 700M Windows users of Windows 7 computers. IE10 delivers a 20% increase in real-world site performance over IE9. The browser has been available since late October for users of Windows 8.
IE10?s advancements run deep, from a 60% increase in supported modern web standards to security, privacy and reliability.
In conjunction with the release of IE10 Microsoft is also introducing a new IE commercial which features singer, song-writer, and composer Blake Lewis. Microsoft came together with Keith Rivers and Blake to showcase what is possible on a new Windows 8 touch device with Internet Explorer 10. A new site is also live today at ExploreTouch.ie. The Explore Touch website provides the individual music components of Blake's track - vocals, strings, bass and other elements - in an interactive touch player that you can use to mix, explore and experiment with via multi-touch on IE10.
Built entirely in HTML5, Explore Touch takes advantage of the touch support of IE10 to create a site that can be swiped, tapped, scratched and rotated.
