Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 Arriving Next Month

Microsoft Group Program Manager Rob Mauceri has today revealed that Internet Explorer 10 will be bringing its bells and whistles over to Windows 7 in mid-November. The catch is that the release planned for next month is (still) a preview as the Redmond company wants to "collect developer and customer feedback" before rolling out a final version.

Internet Explorer 10 integrates Adobe Flash Player and comes with improved JavaScript performance, better HTML5 support, the Enhanced Protected Mode, plus other tweaks and fixes. IE10 can be experienced in full on Windows 8 which arrives on October 26.Source: IEBlog

IE8 was slow. IE9 is fast. Don't see why people hate it.

I installed Chrome, Firefox, used it couple of times, then stop using it.

again thats my preference.

Chrome for life. I may play with IE10 for a week or two though just for shits and giggles.

IE9 isn't all that bad, however I have grown to like FireFox since the IE6 days. I prefer FireFox however will surely install IE10 and give it a shot.

Now here is a thought for all of you folks that think IE is the bomb.

Harvard Universities sites are all built and optimized for Google Chrome and FireFox! Must say something about the two. LOL

I have, chrome works just fine, and it's speed makes up for the majority of hickups. Where as IE is just slow and unstable. But just FYI I mainly use firefox.
I call trolling, uses firefox says IE9 and Chrome w.e latest stable is the most unstable of the browsers. Unless all he thinks is IE9 is unstable when adobe flash crashes.

IE8 was slow. IE9 is slow and clunky and unstable.
Fixed.;)

Call whatever you wish, my experience has not been positive with IE9, and the lack of addons that I am accustomed to in chrome and firefox are a serious detraction from IE9. I don't hate IE 9, I just don't love it either, as I said I am forced to use it for work and school content, and as such I dislike the lack of features.

Not really, it lacks the addons of chrome and firefox, and hardware acceleration is still clunky, and no gesture support is serious issue.

So now it comes with one of the biggest security risks already installed :roll:

Perhaps IE 11 will include Java, just to be well rounded :laugh:

IE has come a long way, and unless IE 10 is the browser equivalent of Windows ME, Firefox and Chrome, will have some legit competition from Micro$oft, but again these are the same people that brought you such favorites as Windows ME, and Windows Vista.;)

Even if I won't use IE, I hope MS improves Web Standards even more, IE10 still lags behind others in HTML5 and CSS3 even if did a huge step. I hope there won't be any IE6-times anymore, despite Appl€ is using now Webkit propietary options.

Interesting, not that it bothers me to much, lets just hope its not as buggy and is an improvement over 9, not saying 9 is bad its the best one microshaft has launched yet, but id like to see improvements.

Sometimes (very often) when I try to download files with Chrome, it just froze and I have to restart the damn thing over and over. I tried all existing "solutions" on the net, nothing works...

I wonder why browsers are so temperamental, I have no problems with any browser I have used so far, crashes or otherwise. If you would like to share what you did with IE to make it crash over and over I would like to give it a try.

I believe it to be a script on my colleges website that hangs, and causes a memory leak that makes it freeze and crash. It doesn't crash 100% of the time, sometimes it recovers from being frozen, but most of the time it does not.

In my case, because it's slower even if it did a great step over IE8, doesn't respect web standards enough as I commented,I prefer Opera/Chrome/Firefox extensions, it's less secure, some modern websites don't work as intended, it's very little customizable, it doesn't innovate as much as the rest, I don't like its UI, and I think more.

And because lots of people now assume that IE is slow/buggy.
