Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Internet Explorer 10 has been released. Discuss here if you still use Microsoft's web browser, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

I've been using IE pretty much all of the time since Windows 2000 released. Prior to that Netscape had been my browser of choice but after AOhell bought it, it's never been the same and I stopped using it.

I've taken the time to check out a few other browsers in recent years but have seen no major differences so have continued to use IE. Because IE comes with Windows I don't have to download and install anything else. Call me lazy but, since IE works as well as all it's competitors, I see no real reason to change.

I'm not excited about a "new and improved" version...it's just more of the same old.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

I believe I launched IE10 once on my Win8 machine, and that was to download Chrome. At the time, I wasn't even aware that it was IE10!

I installed IE10 for Win7 on my main computer a couple of nights ago. It is exactly like IE9. Same interface, same font smoothing, same errors on the same webpages, and definitely not "20% faster" than IE9.

I'm no IE hater. Despite its flaws I still think it's a good browser. I'd choose IE10 over Firefox or Opera any day. It's just that Chrome is even better.

I installed IE10 as soon as it was officially released so I've been running it for a few days now. Supposedly it's faster but I haven't noticed any major difference over IE9 (maybe a little?) but there are some additional privacy settings in Internet Options. However, they're not much good if the advertisers can simply ignore them:

Despite numerous positive reviews & the public's overall willingness to dive head 1st into the Google Chrome pool, it will never be installed on any of my systems. I've tried Chromium on my Linux system just to see what all the hoopla's about & don't understand what the major attraction is. I know it's not the same as Chrome so maybe I'm missing something? But with all the reports (whether real or imagined) about Google's ties with the NSA & Obama administration, I'd rather err on the side of caution.

Firefox is my 2ndary browser & will most likely stay that way until I make the full conversion to Linux.

Agree men...installed IE10 yesterday and don't see it as faster. In fact, only thing I noticed different is that it says 10 when ya click on Help>About.

Since I'm still running XP the latest version of IE I use is 8. And I only use it to run windows update.

Haven't used IE routinely since Firefox was named Phoenix. Recently moved more towards Chrome (it does appear faster than FF) and see no reason to use IE at all anymore (aside from occasional updates).
