If you were one of the people worried that Windows 7 would be left behind with regard to Internet Explorer 11, then you will definitely feel better after today’s news. Microsoft has just released a developer preview of Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 32 and 64 bit operating systems.
When you install the developer preview, it will check for and download any relevant updates (minor on our test system) needed before starting the installation process. Once the installation process has finished, you will need to restart your system.
Important Note: Keep in mind that the developer preview will install over top of (a.k.a. over-ride) your regular version 10 installation!
Here is the official Microsoft video about the new developer preview…
