  • In this IE-blog post from Nov. 2011 it says IE10 will be compatible with Windows 7:

    "Of course, spellchecking will also be available as an IE10 browser feature on all supported versions of Windows (including Windows 7)."

     

     

    According to the IE-Blog they will have IE10 Beta/RC for Windows 7. It does't mention the final version of IE10.

    "We will release an IE10 Beta and Release Candidate on Windows 7 prior to IE10’s general availability."

  • Hi TrekDozer

    Thanks for that - your links add weight to what I already suspected. However, its still a bit implied rather than a definitive statement that IE10 RTW will work on Windows 7.

    I'll wait a few days and see if anyone else has anything official/conclusive to offer before marking this thread as answered.

    Thanks.

    This comment:

    "We will release an IE10 Beta and Release Candidate on Windows 7 prior to
    IE10?s general availability"

    from the blog is a definitive statement. There is no way that Microsoft
    would expend the development effort to produce a beta and a release
    candidate for Windows 7 if they weren't going to ultimately release a
    version of IE10 for Windows 7. What would possibly be the point of that?
