An anonymous reader writes: Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 is out. Windows 8 may suck but now you can at least enjoy (most of) that version's Internet Explorer. IE10 for Win7, originally not planned, has seen the light of day after all â" four months after it debuted in Windows 8. It is available via Windows Update as an optional update, however if you've already installed a pre-release version, it will be updated automatically as an 'important' update. IE7 on Win7 requires a platform update to bring some Windows 8 APIs to the more mature Windows, and it will not feature embedded Adobe Flash as the Windows 8 version does (use the plug-in version from Adobe, as usual, instead).
