Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 now available

Back in October last year, we heard for the first time that Internet Explorer 10 would be making its way to Windows 7, and right on schedule the release preview became available to users in mid-November. Finally, though, Microsoft has quietly rolled out the final version of Internet Explorer 10 to Windows 7 users today.

Internet Explorer 90’s ad aims to reconnect with your youth

Internet Explorer 90’s ad aims to reconnect with your youth

It would appear that Microsoft is aiming to pull in the masses of 20 or 30-somethings that started their web experience with a 1990's-themed advertisement for exactly the same browser the company wants them to now use again: Internet Explorer. This advertisement does, we must admit, strike more than one chord in the nostalgic banjoes in our heads, and like any good SuperBowl commercial, only gets to the product in the last few seconds of the video. That said, whether you're all about IE or you hate its guts, you're probably going to enjoy this advertisement thoroughly.

Microsoft takes on trolls with new Internet Explorer advertisement

Microsoft takes on trolls with new Internet Explorer advertisement

In a new advertisement focused on Internet Explorer, Microsoft addresses the elephant in the room, which is that the company's web browser hasn't been up to snuff in recent years, but Microsoft is slowly changing that by introducing new features that appeal to those who use competitors like Firefox or Chrome. Specifically, the add features a persistant internet troll who bashes Internet Explorer, but eventually comes around to accept that it's getting better.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 13, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone. We had a pretty big day, what with the reveal of the HTC DROID DNA and all. HTC announced that the DROID DNA will be arriving at Verizon on November 21, and we even managed to go hands-on with the device and its wireless charging dock. Of course, today was also the day that the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 became available on the Google Play Store. All but the 16GB Nexus 10 sold through pretty quickly, so we hope you got your hands on the device you wanted before Google put up the out of stock notices.

Windows 8 security update prepared for November 13th

Windows 8 security update prepared for November 13th

The first software update for Windows 8 is already headed right out the door, here with security in mind for the masses. Recent word is that this version of Windows is already significantly less venerable to malicious attacks than its much earlier brethren, but until the operating system is ready to fight off all of its enemies, Microsoft will continue to update. Thusly there is this Version 1.0 Microsoft Security Bulletin scheduled to be bringing you an update on the 13th of November.

Mobile Internet Explorer 10 flash workaround discovered

Mobile Internet Explorer 10 flash workaround discovered

Depending on who you ask, Windows 8 and Windows RT are either awesome or terrible. We happen to fall in the former group (at least as far as Windows 8 is concerned), but there's one thing that is an annoyance to anyone using either operating system: the Internet Explorer 10 Metro browser comes with limited support for Flash. It will likely stay limited for at least a little while too, as websites need to be added to Microsoft's whitelist before Flash functions properly.

Yahoo! refuses to recognize Internet Explorer 10’s Do Not Track

Yahoo! refuses to recognize Internet Explorer 10’s Do Not Track

Back in 2009, Microsoft announced support for Do Not Track in Internet Explorer 9. Soon after, DNT support was added by Mozilla, Apple, and Opera to each company's respective browser. With Internet Explorer 10, Microsoft has DNT enabled by default. Yahoo! doesn't like this move, and released a statement that it will ignore the browser's DNT signal.

Google shows Windows 8 users how to easily ditch Bing and IE

Google shows Windows 8 users how to easily ditch Bing and IE

Windows 8 is here at last and, for the most part, we think it's pretty great. However, as with all new Windows installs, Internet Explorer and Bing are both present. Most people would rather leave those two behind and use different browsers and search engines instead, and today we're seeing Google capitalize on that. Google has launched a new "campaign" of sorts to get new Windows 8 owners using both its search engine and Chrome as quickly as possible.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 17, 2012

It's time to begin counting down to the weekend once again, because we've hit Wednesday evening. Today we heard that the iPad Mini could launch on November 2, which makes sense considering that date is just over a week after Apple's October 23 press event. Later in the day, more sources were mentioning a November 2 release date for the iPad Mini, as well as spilling a few more details about the long-rumored device. The Isis NFC mobile payment system will apparently be launching on October 22, and Microsoft said that Internet Explorer 10 will be coming to Windows 7 in mid-November.

Windows 8 will be getting a completely-redesigned version of Internet Explorer when the new operating system releases on October 26, and Microsoft has mentioned in the past that it plans to bring the same version to Windows 7 at some point. The company announced today that Internet Explorer 10 will be hitting Windows 7 in mid-November.

Advertising lobbying group criticizes Microsoft for IE 10 Do Not Track feature

A US-based advertising lobbying group has sent out an open letter to Microsoft that criticizes the company's decision to enable Do Not Track by default in its Internet Explorer 10 that comes bundled with Windows 8. The Association of National Advertisers (ANA) called Microsoft’s decision “shocking.”
