    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.

    This is good news. I don't use IE very often, but when I do, I drink Dos Equis to forget the horrible experience.

    Maybe with this update the minimize, maximize, and close buttons will work.

    Bah, Opera FTW. But at least MS is doing good job regarding Web standards in IE10 albeit it is behind Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari...

    No, it wasn't "ported" to 7.

    Nope, they finalized it for Windows 8, then moved on to work on the Windows 7 version. I still use it for site compatibility (the odd time I encounter the issue), but it's actually gotten pretty speedy, whereas Firefox for me has gotten slower and slower.

    I see a lot of old hate here. The prudent enthusiast tries large changes in a standard software/hardware before passing judgement. Fortunately I also see the people who have been bit by M$ before laying out their concerns, but still interested in testing the waters. :toast:

    Good news for people who use W7 and IE indeed. However W7 needs SP2 more than IE10

    I personally really like IE9, and I bet I will like IE10. Speed wise I have not been able to see a difference what so ever between IE9 and chrome. I do stick with chrome because it works with all the websites I got to and IE does not. Chrome also has so many luxerious add ons like adblock and so on.

    I still haven't installed I.E. 9, I wish I could remove the thing form my computer all together, but, unfortunately I need it to access work and school related content.

    Lets see how this does. I quite like IE9, but its inflexibility is keeping me from using it.

    Win 7. I'm a PC game dev and gotta test my software. :toast: You do know why its the most widely used. Being shipped with an OS doesn't mean it is any good. But it should be good security wise due to high usage but the company doesn't have a very good track record in that matter.

    And as long as Bill Gates still has billions in his pockets and I don't :cry: I'll call it M$

    IE9 is just as secure as any of the other browsers.

    I use 3 browsers

    Aurora for main internet use / browsing / music and everything else.
    SeaMonkey for bookmarking hot women names
    Netscape for porn(information) / bookmarking porn names

    Set for life. ":) And by way netscape is safe, been using it for that purpose for about 5 years now and never had a problem with a virus.

    I will be glad to see it. The industry needs all the competition it can get to keep the innovations flowing in all areas.
    And, if MS (M$ abbreviation is old and lame) comes out with something I prefer, I will use it.
    IE9 is not bad, it just does not have some functions I want to use, maybe IE10 will.

    Also, my opinion, I don't understand why certain people have to clog up almost every thread with hate, pictures, and useless posts.

    I don't see any hate . . . MS lost a lot of people business and confidence in IE, long ago, you really shouldn't be surprised that people are still skeptical of IE, given it's lack luster track record.

    I use chrome as my main browser, so far it has not done anything naughty yet. I would say browsers have evolved to a point where there is little difference between them unless you look hard enough, or want specifics (eg. adblock) which another does not have.

    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.
