Internet Explorer 10, the one that’s currently available for Windows 8 exclusively, is a much more secure version of the Microsoft browser, a security expert has confirmed a couple of days ago.
The InPrivate browsing tool, the App Container sandbox and the built-in Adobe Flash Player make Internet Explorer 10 a safer browsing environment, thinks Gunter Ollmann, vice president of research at Atlanta-based Damballa Inc.
"IE10 is much more advanced from a security context,” was quoted as saying by TechTarget.com.
Although it’s currently available on Windows 8 exclusively, Microsoft plans to release a dedicated build of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 users too. A preview version is going to be unveiled this month, while the final release of IE 10 for Windows 7 is going to be introduced in early 2013.
