Well, Microsoft wants to make it easier for developers to build content for the latest version of its web flagship web browser, no matter the choice of the operating system. If you’re on Windows 7, you can take the newest version of Internet Explorer for a spin.
If you’re an app developer or website designer, and want to check for compatibility, you can simple use the RemoteIE tool to test using the browser, without have to set up and run a virtual machine.
