    "Just the usual improvements but still behind the others"

    May 1, 2013  |   By Johnny_S

    Pros

    Its free, its a little faster then IE9

    Cons

    It still has those nagging compatibility issues with sites who either are still IE6 compliant or they are using real standards.
    IE10 might be better with standards on paper. But its far from being standard.

    Summary

    I really do not think that much about a browser. As long as it does not crash, bring up BSOD or not load the content I need. I am fine with almost any browser. Having started with IE I tend to continue to use it by habit more then anything. I do not see why IE 10 has the UI flavor of Metro in Win 7? The scroll bar looks like something out of place on Win 7. IE 10 still fails to impress me in things like HTML5 compliance or the fact that much of its speed hype is already gone after only a few months. This is not something that really affects the average web surfer though. After all I still thought IE 9 was plenty fast for what I needed a browser for. Of course Microsoft will push IE 10 on you through Windows updates. So my only question is why if IE 10 is so important to Microsoft going forward. Is it only compatible with Win 7 and Win 8? I think Microsoft must admit to itself that it has lost the browser war and maybe refocus on Windows and allow the others to supply a decent web browser. IE has finally become a crutch for business who is stuck in the past and not willing to break free of apps that require IE. The rest of PC users have already broken free of that ball and chain. IE has become a browser you have to use. Not one that you want to use.

    Updated on Nov 5, 2013

    Lately IE10 hangs a lot on certain web sites. Leave it to Microsoft to build a good browser and muck it up with updates. It still has all the issues IE8 had. Compatibility, crashes, flaky plugin compatibility and honestly why create a decent browser with modern functions and web standards and then back track with the ever present Compatibility mode crap. Let it go Microsoft.
