Microsoft IE 11 Preview Now Appears On Windows 7 Too

Promises faster browsing, 3D graphics, and better video experience.


Microsoft has released the developer preview version of its latest Internet Explorer 11 web browser for Windows 7. The browser has been seen in the Windows 8.1 preview update that was recently released, and its official version will be available with the final version of Windows 8.1. While it is meant to be for developers, anyone can download and experience how it works.

Microsoft has promised several improvements in the new browser including faster and more responsive browsing, hardware accelerated 3D graphics, professional quality video experience, and easy to use developer tools. While Microsoft had stuck to its in-house graphics API DirectX until now, it will introduce support for WebGL in IE 11 to create dynamic 2D and 3D graphics. It will also support SPDY (also supported by the latest Opera browser for desktops), to speed up the web. Additionally, it will be the first IE version to implement the W3C Resource Priorities standard that helps decide and load the important parts of a webpage first with the rest loading later.
