I probably missed the announcement somewhere, but last week I saw this post by Rob Mauceri mentioning that IE10 will become an update for Windows 7. That’s great news, I was afraid that Window 7 users would have to miss the goodness that IE 10 offers.
That was the good news, the bad news is that we’ll have to wait longer as expected(most people thought that IE 10 would become available to Windows 7 after the Windows 8 release).
To quote Rob Mauceri, Group Program Manager, Internet Explorer:
“As we approach general availability of Windows 8, we want to provide an update on IE10 for Windows 7. We will release a preview of IE10 on Windows 7 in mid-November, with final availability to follow as we collect developer and customer feedback.”
So no official release date yet .
