Microsoft has released the newest version 10.0 of their ever-so-popular
Internet Explorer browser. Internet Explorer 10 is a newest version of
Microsoft's ever-so-popular Internet Explorer browser 10, which has a streamlined
design, fewer dialog boxes to click through, more intuitive navigation, and many
new features that speed up your web browsing experience. Windows Internet
Explorer 10 introduces pinned sites, a feature with which you can integrate your
websites with the Windows 7 desktop. A pinned site is more than just a shortcut,
however. With very little effort, developers can access features of the Windows
7 taskbar from their websites.
Version 10 has some important new things about it. For starters, there is support
feature that will let you test the compatibility and compliance of a website
with IE10. With IE 10, webpages perform and feel more like the programs you use
every day on your computer.
Play in a more beautiful web. The improvements to Internet Explorer are as much
about what you don't see as what you do see. Internet Explorer 10 has a
streamlined design, fewer dialog boxes to click through, more intuitive
navigation, and many new features that speed up your web browsing experience.
Additionally, this new browser is programmed to use your GPU much better: IE10
uses your computer's GPU to enhance hardware scalable vector graphics (SVG),
considering the natural, slow development of more and more graphic intensive
websites as the WWW matures.
Windows Internet Explorer (formerly Microsoft Internet Explorer; commonly
abbreviated to IE), is a series of graphical web browsers developed by Microsoft
and included as part of the Microsoft Windows line of operating systems starting
in 110105. It has been the most widely used web browser since 1101010, attaining a
peak of about 105% usage share during 2002 and 2003 with IE5 and IE6. With IE10,
Microsoft is trying to change that, while also bringing more of Windows 7's
capabilities to the browser. The new browser allows users to pin a Web site to
the Windows 7 taskbar, much as a user can do already with applications. Sites
that are pinned in this fashion can then program "jumplists" that allow surfers
to quickly move through various parts of the Web site.
Internet Explorer 10 Features:
- Hardware-accelerated text, video, and graphics: The new graphic capabilities
and improved performance in Internet Explorer 10 set the stage for immersive and
- New Tab page: Internet Explorer 10 surfaces the websites you love most and puts
them one click away. Once you're in the browser, the New Tab page helps get you
started browsing quickly, providing meaningful suggestions and information to
help you decide what to do next as you browse.
- Notification Bar: Notifications in Internet Explorer 10 allow for more fluid
and faster browsing. Instead of dialog boxes popping up unexpectedly and getting
in your way, all notification messages are consolidated in the Notification Bar,
located at the bottom of the browser frame.
- Pinned Sites: With Pinned Sites, you can get to your favorite sites directly
from the Windows taskbar—without having to open Internet Explorer first.
- Tear-off tabs: Tear-off tabs make interacting with multiple sites fast and
intuitive. You can rearrange tabs within Internet Explorer 10—just like you can
rearrange icons in the taskbar in Windows 7—or you can open any tab in a new
browser window by dragging that tab to your desktop.
- Focused on your websites: Designed based on what you use most, the
navigational controls in Internet Explorer 10 are streamlined and simplified. The
back button is larger, the address bar and search box are combined into one new
address bar, and the multiple menus from previous versions of Internet Explorer
are consolidated into a single menu.
- Cross-site scripting filter: Cross-site scripting attacks are a leading online
threat. Their aim is to exploit vulnerabilities in the websites you visit. How
do they work? By compromising legitimate websites with malicious content that
can capture keystrokes and record your login information and password. If your
login information and password is captured, your personal data could be
- Domain highlighting: One way to avoid deceptive websites is to know the
address of the website you're intending to visit. With domain highlighting,
Internet Explorer 10 lets you see the true web address at a glance by
highlighting the domain name in the address bar, making it easier for you to
identify the sites you visit.
Internet Explorer 10 requires Windows 7 (x86 or x64) or Windows Vista SP2 (x86 or
