    "Faster but not better"

    March 27, 2013  |   By kweinkauf

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Faster than any previous IE browser

    Cons

    Interface is not intuitive
    Does not support add ons in Metro mode
    Metro is ugly
    Might as well not have it unless you have a touch screen tablet or phone

    Summary

    First of all, I hate the Metro interface on a desktop. That goes equally well for IE 10. It is OK for a tablet or phone, but for a keyboard and mouse, *************. Most of the features are disabled or impossible (try swiping with an arrow cursor). The interface is not intuitive. On previous versions, I have been able to figure out what I want to do just by looking at the browser, menus, etc. But, three dots? Does that say private browsing to anyone?

    Add ons are not supported. That means that my password archiving utility does not work. That is a deal breaker alone.

    Did I mention that the interface is ugly? It looks like it was designed by a fourth grader (forgive me for casting aspersions on fourth graders). Remember, these are the same folx who brought us Microsoft Bob.

    When it comes to software development, this seems to reek of "simpler is better." For power users this just gets in the way of what we want to accomplish.

    BTW, I did not use profanity where you see asterisks. It is a word that generally means "it ain't happenin'" I like using colloquialisms in my posts, but sometimes the word check algorithm does not.

    "Works well on Windows 7"

    March 27, 2013  |   By pwood20

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    More stable than IE9 was on Windows 7. Don't really notice much difference except need to use compatibility mode more often.

    Cons

    Yahoo keeps telling me to update to IE9 Enhanced for Yahoo.

    Summary

    Glad I upgraded after going to Windows 7

    "A bust. Crashed consistently."

    March 27, 2013  |   By jrmmolinaro

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Thankfully when IE10 was uninstalled, Windows reverts back to IE9.

    Cons

    Unusable...always crashed after opening.

    Summary

    Very disappointed. Although IE9 is my least favorite browser behind Firefox (favorite)and Chrome, it works far better than IE10 on my computers all running Windows 7 Pro.

    "A BUST!!! Can't - Won't Use It - Crashed!!"

    March 27, 2013  |   By joelb662

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Not one. Not a single one...

    Cons

    Crashed my system. Couldn't salvage anything!

    Summary

    Selected the update from Windows Update, downloaded, retarted, and found myself looking at the desktop. Could not access the net, could not download another version. Couldn't do anything. Then everything locked. Had to do a complete re-install and revert to IE9. Microsoft should not be surprised to see losses in market share and profits. They are their own worst enemy. Read the reviews above... Would you buy a used car from this company? I won't.... ever again! I HATE MICROSOFT!!!

    "Stopped using IE after updating to 10"

    March 27, 2013  |   By jsherry47

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Works as it always has for most sites.

    Cons

    I open the browser, check my mail, see what has changed in my reader, then I go on to other things. GMail does not like IE10. It has a text about compatibility settings, but Google is not using them. I try adding Google and then removing, but nothing changes. It may be Google hasn't caught up, but Microsoft should have taken this into account during development.

    Summary

    I'll stick with Firefox till the next update.

    "People who develop for the web don't and won't use IE10"

    March 27, 2013  |   By drhowarddrfine

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Much better than IE9.

    Cons

    It still doesn't support, or doesn't support well, many of technical properties available on any other browser, and it will be at least a year before the next version comes out. IE's history shows it will always be years behind every other browser in the support of modern standards and practices.

    Only works on Windows 8. Force fed into Windows 7. Doesn't work on any other desktop platform and never will.

    Summary

    If you visit any technical web site which shows their user statistics you'll find that those who program for the web do not use IE. That fact alone should tell you something. If the people who program for the web don't use it, maybe you shouldn't either. Unfortunately, users look at a web page and see that it might work well in IE10 but they either haven't compared how it works on any other browser or don't realize how much extra work was involved to make it work in IE.

    And now it will sit for at least a year before you see any updates or improvements unlike any other browser which updates itself every 6 to 8 weeks or so.

    IE has always been the worst of the major browsers and IE10 is no different. No one has any reason to use it.

    "Needs Regular Updates"

    March 27, 2013  |   By petert2005

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Seems faster than previously
    Better support in some areas

    Cons

    Will become out-dated too easily due to lack of updates.

    Summary

    As the article states, Microsoft aren't going to release updates in the same speed as Chrome And Firefox, but they will release them more often than in the past.

    I think they need to take a leaf out of Chrome And Firefox's book. Technology is changing daily these days and the problem for me has been for a long time Microsoft have been playing catch up. They work on their next browser for a year, often longer, and by the time they release it, it and its features are usually out-dated.

    For example I use Chrome and there are always 3 versions available (Firefox works similarly). These are the main stable version, a beta version for people to try new features although not fully stable and a developer version intended for developers.

    Chrome always is releasing updates and unlike Microsoft it's not just security fixes, they also try new features, sometimes to security, sometimes usability. Microsoft should do this to, and when it has new feature ideas, it should try to get them released as soon as possible if it wants to stay in the browser race.

    "Text is Unreadable on Windows 8"

    March 27, 2013  |   By Frogg11

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Works OK in Windows 7. Text is not as clear as Firefox or Opera but at least it is usable.

    Cons

    On Windows 8, IE10 text is so blurry it is unreadable.

    See here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-performance/poor-font-rendering-in-windows-8-blurry-text/f52a2002-d748-485c-8b9c-4862806ea94a?tm=1364376730097&lc=3081&auth=1

    Summary

    Microsoft are losing the plot.
