Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 released today

Microsoft today announced the release of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 in 95 languages.

Initially it will not be offered except as optional. At one point unless you have the Internet Explorer 10 delivery blocker [ https://ebraiter.wordpress.com/2013/02/06/internet-explorer-10-for-windows-7-is-coming-soon/ ] installed, it will be release like a regular security update.

If unsure, you may wish to test it first in a lab, a virtual machine or a machine that you can “blow away” to see if there are any compatibility issues.

Unfortunately, even with the size of the installation, the installer will still probably need to grab additional components off the Internet.

One thing I did notice with the installation is that no questions are asked. You go straight into Internet Explorer.

Second thing I noticed is that unlike the Internet Explorer 9 installation, the installation of Internet Explorer 10 doesn’t disable your previously used toolbars [well at least those that are part of Internet Explorer].

There will be no Internet Explorer 10 for Windows Vista or Windows XP as both are in extended support phase.

Update 2013/02/27: Here are more direct links to the installations [note: they are .EXE and not .MSU].
