Microsoft has released a new preview version of Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 users to download.
The browser is already available to those who have downloaded Windows 8.1, and the company first rolled out the IE11's developer preview for Windows 7 after its Build conference at the end of July. Now the updated "Release preview" fixes some bugs reported by users, with improvements to WebGL support and the addition of new F12 developer tools.
Microsoft has made bold claims about its browser's performance. At the Build conference this year, the firm boasted IE11 wouldn't slow even with 100 tabs open.
"Performance matters to everyone who browses the web," said Microsoft. "The IE11 Release Preview for Windows 7 includes additional performance tuning so that real-world sites download and display fast and are highly responsive and interactive."

Its funny that they all talk about speed of browsers as if its the only thing that matters. I can't remember the last time I cursed a browser for being slow.

Firefox and Chrome are very slow on my tablet. IE10 runs rings around them. Their touch friendliness also leave a lot to be desired.
