Internet Explorer 10 now available for more than 700M Windows customers

Today we are excited to announce the availability of IE10 for Windows 7, bringing the most modern and high performing version of IE to over 700M Windows customers. IE10 delivers a 20% increase in real-world site performance over IE9 making IE10 the fastest modern browser on the market according to third parties.

IE10’s advancements run deep, from a 60% increase in supported modern web standards to industry leading security, privacy and reliability that makes IE the browser of choice for millions of Windows customers worldwide. For a deep-dive on all of the great enhancements that come to Windows 7 with IE10 head over to the IE Blog for the full update.

You can download IE10starting today.

Perfect for Touch

In conjunction with the release of IE10 we are also introducing a new IE commercial which features singer, song-writer, and composer Blake Lewis. We came together with our friend Keith Rivers and Blake to showcase what is possible on a new Windows 8 touch device with Internet Explorer 10. Check it out…

The site you see Blake interacting with in the spot 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 innovative touch support of IE10 to create a site that can be swiped, tapped, scratched and rotated to fully explore the richness and depth of Blake’s track, Your Touch.


We are huge fans of Blake’s new track so we made it available for streaming for a one-week exclusive at ExploreTouch.ie, and as a free download from Xbox Music.

Whether you have a great new touch device with Windows 8 or are a Windows 7 customer who is about to have your web experience upgraded with IE10 – we invite you to hit play and turn up the volume.

Thank you for helping us continue to create a more beautiful and more touchable web!
