New IE11 on Windows 7

I have been wondering since Windows 7 is on mainstream support until January 14, 2015 and will it be released fully before this date

I very much doubt that IE11 will be compatible with Windows 7. It will be for Windows 8 and later only.

Actually, according to Internet Explorer 11 will be coming to Windows 7 - Neowin, it will.

Opening line: Microsoft confirmed to Engadget today that Internet Explorer 11 will be coming to Windows 7, although it wasn't mentioned exactly when the web browser will be available on the last-generation operating system.

I just realized something this will be the 4th browser that has been on Windows 7, because its already had IE8, IE9, and currently IE10 and now IE11 when it is released and this is one of the first versions of Windows to go through 4 different versions of Internet Explorer

I hope not. More change for the sake of change. Everytime a new version gets released it creates new bugs/problems. Apple are the same with ios and iTunes. New features but existing things break. I would hope Microsoft focus on getting IE10 right for sometime to come. At the moment it is alright but far from perfect.

If you don't want to be surprised one Tuesday or Wednesday morning Review windows updates before downloading and installing them automatically,
Makes for a more predictable morning

Developer tools would say otherwise.
Uninstalling ie8 would still roll back.
Some people said ie10 on windows 8 was impossible to uninstall as well.
