The general availability of Windows 8 is getting closer and closer. Even though Microsoft is focused on this new OS, it hasn't forgotten about users who won't upgrade right away. Windows 7 users who want to get their hands on IE10 will have the option to do so: Microsoft plans to release a preview of IE10 in mid-November. Final availability of IE10 will follow as the company collects developer and customer feedback.

IE10 on Windows 7 will have the same standards based platforms as IE10 on Windows 8. This browser is said to be 8% faster than Chrome 20, making it the fastest browser on the market according to Strangeloop. IE10 also supports additional standards that Web developers have asked for.

Although Microsoft can claim to have the fastest browser, IE10 currently has a very small market share since it's only available to those who have Windows 8 installed. Since a small minority of users actually has access to this browser, we're glad to see Microsoft will expand the availability of IE10.

I'm glad that Microsoft will give us a new IE 10 soon to add on to Windows 7. IE9 still good and surf fast and with that new IE 10 will be huge improvement and faster than IE9. I will wait for new IE10 come out soon.

8% faster then chrome but still not good enough to convince anyone to switch to it.

That one browser which is only good for downloading other browsers.

(my opinion)

The speed of IE has never been the problem.  The problem has always been standards conformance, and general security issues due to OS integration.  If speed is the only improvement, I wouldn't touch this with an IE10ft pole.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
