Internet Explorer 10

The successor to Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9 Web browser, Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) is integrated into the Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 operating systems, which made their official debuts on October 26th, 2012. Among other enhancements and performance improvements, Internet Explorer 10 significantly improves the browser's support for CSS3 and HTML5.

Internet Explorer 10 can be run as a traditional desktop application or in Windows 8 Metro, and its engine powers the Metro applications that utilize HTML5 and JavaScript. IE10 will also be the default Web browser for smartphones and other mobile devices powered by the Windows Phone 8mobile operating system.

Internet Explorer 10 is currently available only as part of the Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 operating system releases. IE10 was originally expected to additionally run on the Windows 7 OS, but that issue has been in question recently as Microsoft focuses on the new operating system releases. Microsoft has said it will provide a preview release of the Web browser for Windows 7 in the near future.
