Internet Explorer 11 is Officially Available for Windows 7

Back in September, Microsoft launched the Release Preview of Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7. Currently, the company is releasing the full version of Internet Explorer 11. The company announced today that Windows 7 users can now enjoy the same version of IE that is shipping with Windows 8.1.

The browser is available worldwide in 95 languages and will be rolling out to Windows 7 users over the next few weeks. First to get the update will be those already running the Developer and Release Preview version of the software.

Internet Explorer 11 brings improvements in performance (faster page loading, faster interactivity, faster JavaScript performance) and is less taxing on your CPU and battery.
