The long awaited Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 is getting closer. Microsoft has hinted that the upgrade will be becoming available within the next month or two.
Ironically this has been suggested by the release a blocker toolkit that blocks the installation of browsers through routine updates. The toolkit keys have been set to prevent IE10 being automatically installed, it can however be put to action manually. This move suggests Microsoft are buying some time for IT admins to ensure the release is compatible with their companies in house web apps.
A preview version of the browser was released back in the autumn, in line with the release of the latest OS, Windows 8, which uses IE10 as default.
A date hasn’t been announced yet, and Microsoft aren’t giving anything away, simply saying IE10 is ‘expected in 2013’.
