RemovedWindowsKey

internet-explorer-10-for-windows-7Internet Explorer 10 has just recently been released for Windows 7. Even if you prefer another browser like Firefox or Google Chrome you might want to know what have changes in the new version of Internet Explorer 10. In my opinion Microsoft has been falling a lot behind in the browser war. One of the reasons is that there is years between the browser upgrades from Microsoft. That been said Microsoft Internet Explorer is still the most used browser worldwide and that is why you should not ignore this new version even that you don’t want to use it yourself. If you have your own blog or website you need to make sure that your site is looking good in IE10. If you don’t want to upgrade your own IE yet you can test your blog or website using this free browser tester.
