    "Better than IE9 but still lacks proper CSS support."

    March 27, 2013  |   By bulbasos

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Cannot give any over FireFox or Chrome.
    Much better than IE9 - supports more CSS tags and is faster.

    Cons

    Does not support the "preserve-3d" CSS tag.
    This means that most 3D web pages simply do not work (but work fine on FF and Chrome).

    "Okay but still suck"

    March 27, 2013  |   By 1stsim144

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Starts WAY better than the previous version
    Simplified look
    Faster start up

    Cons

    IE itself
    Bing search. Just stop. Google > Bing

    Summary

    It's okay for its own league.
    But it will never beat Google Chrome or even Firefox.
    Just stop trying to make IE/Bing the 'it'.. Just stop.
    Focus on the damn OS instead.

    "Okay to good, but definitely not great or amazing."

    March 26, 2013  |   By m4ch4x0r

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Faster than MSIE9, more secure than previous versions of MSIE as well
    Clean, modern interface in Win7 and Win8 desktop mode
    Touch is almost as good as iPad's Safari

    Cons

    No Vista or XP version (lack of Vista support is a joke, since Vista shares most components with 7 and 8)
    No support for other operating systems
    Not as fast as Chrome or Firefox

    Summary

    I installed this on both a Pentium Dual-Core e5300 (overclocked to 3.2 GHz) and in virtual machines on a Core 2 Duo e8400 (overclocked to 3.8 GHz) for both Windows 7 and Windows 8. It's good enough, but I'd still rather use Chrome or Firefox as both of those browsers have the fastest feeling experience.

    "Most efficient so far"

    March 26, 2013  |   By drrasheed

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Fast response
    Easy to update
    Download folder can be relocated

    Cons

    Everything went fine until 'outlook.com' mail client failed to open on IE. Outlook.com can be opened in all bother browsers, but not on IE 10. Windows 8 mail can be opened smoothly

    Summary

    -but for the failure to open 'outlook.com'

    "Doesn't Properly Set Color Scheme In Metro Mode AND...."

    March 22, 2013  |   By PC_Hamster

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Not bad BUT.....

    Cons

    .....If set to a customized dark color scheme, the Trident Rendering engine WILL NOT set it for Metro Mode apps such as the App Store. That's like walking into the local Walmart at night before closing but during a power outage

    Also, it crashed once & has now rendered my Logitech C615 Webcam COMPLETELY, TOTALLY & UTTERLY USELESS to other applications by LOCKING THE DRIVER !!! Tried uninstalling the Logitech driver & software, cleaning out the registry, rebooting the PC, etc. etc etc. ALL to NO avail

    I'm afraid I'm gonna have to take the computer in for a professional cleaning & diagnostic checkup

    Summary

    DO feel free to use BUT I DO NOT recommend making it your default browser

    "Internet Explorer has caught back up!"

    March 21, 2013  |   By acerhater96

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Blazing fast, spell check (finally!), simple interface, SmartScreen Filter

    Cons

    Some websites have trouble with support for IE10 because the web developers are stuck on IE6 and IE7. Third party add ons need to be disabled in settings to prevent toolbars and other garbage.

    Summary

    This is by far the best internet explorer yet. Starts up instantly and loads pages almost instantly. In this version, they added a feature that when closing tabs each tab expands so you can close many tabs without moving to each tab. It works very well and I find myself missing it on IE9. Security in IE10 is amazing. Personally, it has told me not to go to certain websites and also verifies that downloads are safe. Overall, there is virtually no reason to be using Chrome or Firefox with Internet Explorer being this good!

    "worst browser ever had."

    March 17, 2013  |   By stiverss

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    there are no pros.

    Cons

    the browser was downloaded without my permission. when I tried to watch videos, they became jerky. wasn't a very pleasant time.
    Can't access a tool bar.
    No way of uninstalling it. The tech. support just sends you around in circles. then you end up talking about your os. someone please try and explain that one to me.I have my windows update set at auto. but I set it to let me choose what to download. Them downloading this without my permission really upsets me.

    Summary

    stay away from this product. you will be sorry.

    "Finally Internet Explorer is back!"

    March 3, 2013  |   By boki101

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    Wow,I'm stuck to IE 10,which is really weird,because I'm a big Opera and Firefox fan,but the competetion now is fierce. I'm happy with all 3 browsers,but IE 10 is a huge positive surprise. It's really fast and low on memory usage! It has a tracking protection now,so no more advertisments in IE!

    Cons

    Really can't think of any.

    Summary

    Welcome back IE!

    "Fast, smooth, nice looking, beats Chrome and Firefox"

    March 2, 2013  |   By gernaman001

    Version: Internet Explorer 10 10.0

    Pros

    The nice interface is easier to use, and more streamlined than the awful IE releases of the past (excluding IE 9). It is much faster than IE 9, Firefox, and terrible Chrome.

    Cons

    none so far

    Summary

    I would recommend this to any PC user. This is the reason to ditch Firefox and Chrome now, Microsoft has truly published such a compelling web browser, it's hard not to appreciate the improvements.
