Windows 7 Can Count on IE 10

IE 10 was really designed for Windows 8. Now comes official word that the browser will run on Win 7 as well, something that has been talked about less than the CIA's personnel files.

True to its recent words, Microsoft is now prepping an IE 10 preview for Windows 7, due out next month.

The last word on IE 10 for Win 7 was a Platform Preview this past June. IE 10 is a pretty big departure. It not only has a touch interface (along with the older interface), but it does away with plugins with the huge exception for Flash (at least on Win 8). Not running Flash would be a deal breaker for most.

But with IE 10 for Win 7 still a ways away, we're not completely sure it will share Flash with its Win 8 brethren. My guess? Yes.
