It was just last month when Microsoft revealed the preview version of Internet Explorer 10 would arrive for Windows 7 in mid-November.  Well, a look at a calendar says we're in the middle of November now, and Microsoft has delivered right on cue. The Release Preview of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 is now available to download direct from MS. The look of IE10 on Windows 7 is very similar to the look on Windows 8, and many of the features made the jump. Full-screen browsing, hardware acceleration, multitouch support, and a "Flip Ahead" feature that predicts what page you want to view next are all in the W7 version of the browser. Many of the multitouch gestures can be performed on a trackpad with the right drivers if you lack a touchscreen on your Windows 7 computer. A mouse and keyboard work just fine, too.
