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

    And because it's made by Microsoft too.

    But in my case it isn't slow nor buggy (except some websites), nor doesn't matter me if its made by MS or not, but there are better browsers for my needs and there isn't a real reason for me to use it.

    Sounds like your college is not bothered with IE compatibility. My college doesn't bother with Chrome, but it still works (to some extent).

    Still no color management. Really disappointing, not supporting something so basic on one of their own core software.

    Yep me 2 ,I find certain sites load slower with FireFarce then IE10.Under Win8......IE is 10.0.9200.1634 version numbers.So yes it is final and is being ported to Win7 just like DX11.1 and those 2 will be the only things ported to WIn7 from 8.

    IE10 Is theme options with colour changes,None are out until WIn8 hits Oct26th,Do any of guys watch The Walking Dead commercials last week??????????? YOU CAN CHANGE THEMES IN IE10 ....there no more of the talk from you guys not seeing it.

    It's a JC in a bankrupt state that continually cuts funding for classes to pay for teachers pensions.

    You either are trolling or didn't bother to read the conversation, that and given I stated why I believe it does what it does and that it in fact does not "work perfectly fine", please GTFO :shadedshu

    In which case do your community a service and improve the IT :)

    Also, shoot the retired teachers to you need less pensions, they are not productive to the community anyway after retiring (no don't do this).

    If IE is crashing its two things.

    1. Something isn't coded right in the site. Could even be malware and is causing IE to crash.

    2. Something is wrong with your computer.

    I spend way over 12 hours a day working off the same computer going to TONS of sites for work and Ill bet you money my event viewer and reliability monitor is better then yours. IE is industry standard. If a site crashes IE then its something wrong with the site or your computer. Not IE.

    This time I agree with the Postal Dude. I hate addons, and except AdBlock I have none installed. I use IE sometimes because of shitty sites codded with ActiveX and also for Sopcast TV sites and such. We all know that most of the live broadcast sites ONLY work with IE...

    What irony, clicking on the link in the quote, it shows garbage in anything but IE9, some server is sending a image as plain text a HTML document (text/html) and IE doesn't respect that :rolleyes:

    You call Microsoft "M$" only due to that? then almost all big companies should had currency symbols on its names. In my case I do that only with Apple due to other reasons.

    Wow you copied what yet still was unable to grasp it . . . you want to play semantics go for it, but the reality is the browser crashes regardless of if you like it or not.;)

    No offense, but Bill Gates is more generous and does more good with his money than you would probably ever do if you had as much as him.

    Components of IE are so tightly integrated into the OS that there probably is a problem with Windows on your computer.

    Nope, brand new installation, and I have checked there are no registry errors or anything of that nature.

    I find it funny how the M$ faithful will grasp at any straw to attempt to shift blame away from M$ products.

    well if you have a problem with the stuff put unix/linux on your machine then, oh i forgot, most games are still Windows Only Compatible or require WINE on Linux.:D

    In other news, MS has came a long way since IE6/7. 9 just works period. I wonder how 10 will be

    a pico corner of the Web lmao
