IE10 launch for Windows 7 looks imminent

I

In November, Microsoft released a "preview version" of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 to the general public. However, Microsoft has also allowed select users to test updated builds of the web browser via their Connect program. Now, it appears that Microsoft has given those testers their final pre-release builds.

ZDNet.com reports that Microsoft has informed them the current build of IE10 for Windows 7 they can download and test is supposed to be the final one before the official version is released to the public. Microsoft reportedly told the testers: While there is still no RTW (release to web) date to announce at this time, please make sure you are filing prompt feedback if any issues are found."

That would seem to strongly suggest that the final version of IE10 for Windows 7 is just weeks, or ever just days, away from its launch to the public. IE10 has already been released for Windows 8 and Windows RT users and a version of the browser is available for Windows Phone 8 smartphone owners.

It's looking like its going to be a busy next few weeks for Microsoft. The Surface Pro tablet is expected to launch before the end of the month and Office 2013 is also expected to be released in the near future.
