Microsoft offers "enhanced" IE10 with Bing and MSN [Update]

Microsoft launched the first non-beta version of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 earlier this week. Microsoft has already promoted the fact that their latest version of their web browser is faster and supports more web standards than the older IE9.

But if you really want to go all out and get the full "enhanced" Microsoft experience, the Bing team has created a special version of IE10 that you can download right now. This version sets Bing as the default search engine on the web browser and also puts Microsoft's as its main home page.

Of course, you can just go in and reset the defaults on this "enhanced" version of IE10 so that some other search engine (maybe one that starts with the letter "G") handles your web searching needs. You can also change the default home page to something else other than after you install it as well.

Still, if you really love Bing and really love MSN, than this is the version of IE10 to download rather than the "non-enhanced" version (yes, that's how they refer to it on the download page).

Update: As Neowin reader "GreatMarkO" points out, this version of IE10 also has a Bing/MSN title bar that can only be changed by going into the Windows registry. "You'll want to change back the 'Window Title' setting under HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\ back to just 'Internet Explorer'"
