Hello all,
I've been noticing lots of questions coming through about uninstalling IE10. Personally I don't use IE for my daily internet browsing, but I have tried version 10 and I didn't notice many new features or a faster speed. From all of the questions coming in, it sounds like IE10 is causing quite a few problems for people. What do you think of the new version?

Thanks!

What do I think of IE10 - putting it bluntly, it's cr*p.

I'm a devoted Chrome user anyway, so no tears from me. Just thought I'd give it a spin to see if it lived up to all the hype, and predictably it doesn't. IE still has no compelling reasons to use it instead of what I'm currently using.

Oh, and though it worked okay on my 32-bit Win7 PC, no way would it work on my 64-bit Win7 laptop, despite removing & re-installing it. Chrome works flawlessly on both of them. Enough said.

I've been using IE10 at work since it came out and I have no problems with it. I'm not sure what version I'm using at home but considering I turned off the updates, it'll be 8 or 9 or whatever Windows 7 came out with.

For just surfing the web, I've found that any one browser is as good as the other and I've not seen enough of any advantage with other browsers to make me want to spend the time downloading and installing any other browser. Call me lazy but for what I need, IE is working good enough for me and using it saves me time and effort.

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 have found IE10 brilliant on Windows 8 (arguably the best version I have ever had). I think these reports are for IE10 on Windows 7 - seems there are issues with that combo.

Part of what I do as IT support for my job is managing an online report portal. IE10 on Win8 and Win7 has been a nightmare; I've tried everything I could think of regarding IE settings, I've even tried using the compatibility view that is built into IE.

I have rolled more machines back to IE9 than you can shake a stick at... Not to mention all of the threads on this site requesting the same...

Unfortunately, I'm now going back over my work on the site itself trying to figure out what is causing the issue... ugh....

Seems I was lucky with IE10 on Window 8 then. No issues at all, no idea why.
[I found IE8 was a real pig on XP but that's history]

I'm sure there aren’t many major issues with IE10, just depends on what sites you go to... Luckily, you don't need to view my reports haha!! I think the biggest problem with my report portal is me! Other than that, I haven't had any other issues with IE10.

Do you use the full screen “metro” version of IE 10 on Win8 or do you use the desktop version of IE10? I'm asking because I found the full screen version a bit tedious for users who aren’t familiar with keyboard shortcuts...

I guess I should point out that I am a Chrome user at home and have been for a long time! Never seem to have any issues with it and it does everything I need a web browser to do!

Didn't like the metro version for various reasons, so I generally use the desktop IE10 version with an "IE Desktop" shortcut to it on the metro screen.

I haven't used Internet Explorer in several years, maybe mid 2000s. I used to use IE back in the days of dial-up. Today, I am a Firefox user and satisfied with it ever since.

I use both IE and Firefox. Very handy to be able to open another browser and temporarily preserve your original search/website on the other one. Apart from the XP with IE8 issue already mentioned, I like both browsers.

Derek, perhaps you are not aware that you can open multiple instances of Firefox. I do it all the time.

I don't use IE very much but I do have IE10 on Windows 7 32 bit and don't see any issues with it.

Re #12
Yep, its probably just a matter of getting used to whatever method you use. Somehow I find it more definite (less confusing) to switch between icons on the quick launch bar. I might give the Firefox multiple instance feature another whirl and see how I get on.

I only ever use IE, im not a fan of any of the other browsers, iv tried chrome, oprah, firefox and various others but something always brings me back to IE.

I have Windows 7 64 bit OS and installed IE 10 as soon as it was available, i have had no problems with it at all, it all runs well and is as quick as it can be.

Not sure what all the complaints are about i have the same setup on two desktops and one laptop all running the same OS and IE versions with no problems what so ever.

IE 10 has problems with lots of controls in portal / cloud app situations, but Chrome is far worse. Business related tools are not designed to run in Chrome. IE and Safari, even still not as common, are the targets. I attribute this to the VS tools that make creation so much quicker.

I say blah to Chrome and IE10, and as an IT even I rolled back to 9 with the block installed. :)

I'm still learning everyday.

Looks like, as often, experiences vary but maybe there are more folk having issues with IE10 with Windows 7 in particular. It's OK on my wife's Vista laptop.

I 'had' IE9 on my older computer. And it was cr@p, big time. Wouldn't run Java, Couldn't download anything, was slow as hell,etc. etc. Now that I have Windows8 and the IE10 metro app, not much better.

I'm a Chrome user through-and-through, but the lack of 64-bit Chrome for online gaming is beginning to get to me.
