Microsoft launches Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7

Microsoft has seemingly rolled out its most recent Internet Explorer 11, web browser to the users of its Windows 7 OS.

The software giant claims that its new browser opens web pages 30 percent faster than its competitors and that it can handle up to 100 open browsing tabs at one time in one window. Internet Explorer 11 is also like-minded with all the latest web standards, including HTML5, and Microsoft hopes the browser will help pave the way for well-known access to 3D websites and apps.

Microsoft is also emphasizing IE11's better hardware-accelerated 3D Web graphics, with better WebGL optimization. According to the company, IE11 scans for unsafe WebGL content, and uses a software renderer to complement the GPU. Graphics subsystem failures will supposedly now also not result in fatal occurrences, with WebGL ongoing to run.

The Microsoft is also stressing on how IE11 is interoperable with existing sites, and how Compatibility View is still supported.

The browser was officially released on October 17, concurrently with the launch of the Windows 8.1 update. While IE11 may be downloaded from Microsoft's website, the company is not yet offering an automatic update to previous versions of IE.
