"Good but lacks a lot of simple features"
Very fast - with no add ons loaded
tabbed bar is smaller increasing the browser window area
(tabbed bar can be moved below address bar by right clicking)
Resolution is very good, text size appears smaller and slightly crisper than other browsers
About all I can think of when compared to other browsers
No spell checker - Google chrome has this as standard
No ad block - Chrome has this
Essentially interface ripped straight from chrome
Still has handling issues of some websites (compatibility mode???)
Why is IE the only browser that requires this mode?? It clearly is not necessary? (still bloated a bit?)
Still causing me a headache when I have to write code for websites.
W3 standards exist for a reasons Microsoft! either you've got it wrong or all of the other competing browsers have it wrong.
I would happily use this browser, however since switching to Chrome I have never looked back due to it's features and apps.
I have used Firefox, Opera, Safari, IE7,8,9. IE9 is the quickest but only if it is not customized by the user. This is why I prefer Chrome because after customization it still runs quickly.
