Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) is currently the default web browser for the Windows 8 operating system, which is certainly no surprise. However, in Microsoft’s continued efforts to remain the major player in the browser game (depending on who you ask), IE10 is now being released on Windows 7.
With it comes a number of new features, including a faster speed and better overall performance. As you update your browser and are connected to the Internet better than ever before, now is the perfect time to update its look as well with a new IE10 theme.
Check out a few of Brand Thunder’s favorite Internet Explorer 10 themes below.

Learn More about Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7
Though Internet Explorer 10 has been around on Windows 8 for months, Windows 7 users were previously left in the dust with only a preview version. Now, they’ll have full access to the new features of IE10, which include better web standards support, improved tab functions and a much faster overall speed (in a number of tests and studies, it is actually the fastest browser out there). Additionally, Microsoft says that users should experience a 20 percent increase in performance from IE10 compared to IE9.
Internet Explorer 10 also comes with improved features for web developers, as there is now better support for CSS 3, HTML5 and related APIs.
It does not, however, have a built-in Flash or PDF reader, though it will tell you if an add-on is slowing down your web browsing.
The new browser started as an optional update, but will end up as a completely silent background update for users of Internet Explorer 9. Though IE10 has taken a while to get to Windows 7 users, they will enjoy the better overall performance of this browser, along with its top-of-the-line security and privacy features.
