Internet Explorer 10 will come to Windows 7

Internet Explorer 10 will come to Windows 7

Microsoft up until now was tight lipped about the upcoming version of Internet Explorer 10 in regards to Windows 7. While everyone assumed that the company would release Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7, no one knew for sure if this was really the case. All demonstrations and preview versions of Internet Explorer 10 up until now were only available for various versions of Windows 8, and not for Windows 7.
The main indicator for a Windows 7 release of the browser is Microsoft's two operating system support rule which the company switched to in recent time. Internet Explorer 9, the current version of the browser is only available for Windows Vista and Windows 7, and not supported by Windows XP. It was therefore assumed that Internet Explorer 10 would not be available for Windows Vista, but only for Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Rob Maucerie, Internet Explorer Group Program Manager, has just published a post on the official Internet Explorer blog about the browser's future on Windows 7. According to him, Internet Explorer 10 will come to Windows 7 in November, shortly after the release of the Windows 8 operating system.
It needs to be noted that Microsoft will release a preview version of Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 in mid-November, and that it will take time after the release before the final version for the operating system gets released. According to Microsoft, the preview of IE10 on Windows 7 is necessary to collect developer and customer feedback.
The browser in general will offer the same standards that Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 8 offers.
IE10 on Windows 7 has the same standards based platform for developers to target as IE10 on Windows 8. We built an entirely new browser with Windows 8, with more performance and developer capabilities. IE10 brings improved real-world site performance and additional standards support to Windows 7 that Web developers have been asking for.
It will be interesting to see how the version of the browser for Windows 7 will turn out, and whether there are any major differences to the Windows 8 version of Internet Explorer 10 besides the missing start page version of the browser.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 

Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…
