Last Tuesday's Microsoft released the Internet Explorer 10, aimed at PCs running on Windows 7 -- the most used version of Microsoft Corp.'s flagship operating system for PCs. Today we will detail some features and the IE 10 bugs reported.
A preview version of Internet Explorer 10 has been available for Windows 7 machines since mid-November. The final version of Internet Explorer 10 will be automatically sent to all Windows 7 computers set up to get updates. And Microsoft's stock gained 18 cents to $27.55 in morning trading Tuesday.

Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 packs some handy-dandy usability features, including integrated spell checking and auto-correct features. The improvements continue under the hood as well. The browser offers better support for Web standards such as HTML 5, and Do Not Track—which asks websites not to track the users' browsing history in order to serve targeted ads—is enabled by default. Internet Explorer 10 also reduces strain on CPUs and batteries.
"Tens of millions" of people downloaded the preview mode on Windows 7, Gavin said. About 90 percent of Windows PCs have been programmed to get the automatic updates, Gavin said. It could take several weeks before the Internet Explorer 10 updates are sent to all those computers. Internet 10 doesn't work on XP, Vista or other older versions of Windows.
Microsoft, which is based in Redmond, Washington, is counting on Internet Explorer 10 to reverse recent trends in the Web browser market. By some estimates, Google Inc.'s Chrome browser has supplanted Internet Explorer as the world's most popular browser.
Other research firms still assert that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used, although all measures show it has been losing market share to Chrome, Mozilla's Firefox and Apple Inc.'s Safari.
Microsoft believes the barrage of new products will prove it remains on the cutting edge of the latest technology trends, 38 years after the company's founding.
The push hasn't swayed Microsoft's stock, which is hovering around the same price as when Windows 8 came out in late October.
I believe that time will finally prove us which of the 2 browsers enjoys a larger popularity.
