Microsoft confirmed that Internet Explorer 11 will be coming to Windows 7. The new browser is part of the upcoming Windows 8.1 update, but Microsoft did mention exactly when the browser will be released for Windows 7.
Previously Microsoft wouldn't say whether Internet Explorer 11 would come to Windows 7, although it was speculated it would as Internet Explorer 10 eventually made its way to Windows 7 several months after the launch of Windows 8. The news that IE11 is coming to Windows 7 will please many people who don't want to upgrade to Microsoft's latest OS, but still want the benefits of a modern browser including improved battery life, better speed and WebGL support.
