Internet Explorer 10: Surf fast, surf safe

IE10 keeps you safe online, guarantees peace of mind

The all-new touch enabled Internet Explorer 10 may deliver a fast, fluid online experience, but it's not just a pretty face – it's one of the safest browsers around.

The respected independent testing firm NSS Labs thought so too, finding that IE10 has the best protection from socially-engineered malware of any major browser in recent tests. A new feature called Enhanced Protected Mode is enabled by default, and provides super-strength protection from online attacks, locking down access to your operating system.

Additionally, Microsoft has invested heavily in a new shielding technology called SmartScreen. Smartscreen uses URL Reputation and App Reputation to protect from online threats like no other – it has blocked more than 1.5 billion socially engineered malware and phishing attacks already, and continues to block between 3 and 5 million attacks each day.

Of course, Internet Explorer 10 keeps its clean and uncomplicated ethos, in spite of all this ingenuity under the hood. It's designed with tablets in mind, so touch and gesture navigation is baked in to it, giving you a smoother, more intuitive experience of your favourite online content.

IE10 offers industry-leading privacy features to help keep your data private – something that is ever-more important online. Features such an InPrivate Browsing can easily be switched on when you're using a public PC, while Tracking Protection Lists and support for Do Not Track privacy protection are both designed to help manage online tracking concerns. Do Not Track is easily enabled with just one click in Internet Explorer 10.

Overall, Internet Explorer 10 offers industry-leading security and protection, as well as a stunning internet experience. Keeping you safer and helping you to browse better on tablets or laptops, Windows 8 or Windows 7 – why not try it today?
