Redmond has gradually restarted its browser development. With the preview version of IE9 now available, it shows that work to be back at full steam.
The new Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 Release Preview is 30 percent faster than the competition, says Microsoft. But more importantly, Web browsing is once again a big deal in Redmond.
As Internet Explorer 10 reaches Windows 7, Microsoft readies a massive auto-update campaign for the browser's previous version.
Internet Explorer 11 ships by default in Windows 8.1, and a developer preview of the browser for Windows 7 confirms that the older OS won't be left behind -- for now.
