The IE11 Developer Preview edition for Windows 7 is now being seeded from the company free of charge. Microsoft had previously announced the latest version of its browser almost a month back when the pre-release version of Windows 8.1 was made official and now, it has taken the first steps of bringing the latest technology to the earlier platform.
This release running on Windows 7 is around 4% faster than IE10 and 30% quicker than the top competitor. These estimates are based on the WebKit SunSpider benchmark tool. The company is also providing a guide for coders which has a full list of the latest features incorporated within the IE11 Developer Preview browser.
The IE11 Developer Preview browser for Windows 7 can be downloaded thorough the company’s website and it’s said to work with both 32- and 64-bit systems with Service Pack 1 or higher installed. Do note, this pre-release is primarily meant for developers and may not function to its full capacity. A Consumer Preview version is expected in the coming months.
