Page load times are great, as long as the page loads correctly...or loads at all.

stability is where they need to concentrate.

I've never witnessed a stability issue with 64-bit trident since IE8 nor with any version of IE on 7/8/2008/2012 or vista ...and I service home and business computers for a living for quite awhile...

avatar

Shalbatana

There's a 64 bit version? Why is it so hard to find these? I find threads everywhere of every browser having a beta or unofficial versions, but none official. I've been using firefox's "nightly" for 64 bit (love it by the way).

Anyway, perhaps stability was the wrong word, it's stable for the most part (though I do experience issues with certain programs we use at work, but I'm not going to count those). However I do find that some pages hang, and others never load correctly, more often than other browsers it seems.

This message is not directed toward you Cy-Kill. Instead, it more or less meant to branch off of your topic that you had mentioned above. The modern English language as we know it today has several thousands of loanwords from French, Greek, Latin and other languages. We all continually use them every single day without ever realizing it. I too would like to mention that the English spelling system is quite dreadful when compared to some of its European siblings. A child can rapidly learn how to spell words in the Finnish language within a matter of months instead of a few years. Big names like Benjamin Franklin and Theodore Roosevelt wanted a major English spelling reform to become a reality. It is an idea that has never really taken off. Still has not to this day unfortunately.

when i first got my win7 note book it was quick and a pleasure to use, but now after thousands of windows updates it has slowed to a crawl. i have loaded only 2 or3 of my own program in it, so im sure im not the cause. to test this i used system recovery to put it back to factory setting and low and behold its quick again. whats going to happen when ie10 loads up.

learn how to maintain a system... first by never trusting an oem install!

more likely driver update (or lack thereof) or malware; possibly drive overcrowding (but am grasping at straws with that unless you've got an ssd)

use UAC with a standard user account, MSE instead of paid and poorly-integrated antivirus, add MBAM and EMET and always install all updates

my customers never have problems with their machines (:

AFDozeman, you read my mind perfectly. I don't know how you did it, but I was going to say the exact same thing about this article going on about IE 10, LMAO! I went from IE 7 to firefox, then go tired of the ceaseless what seemed like daily updated, and then my firefox kept crashing or having to re-install, so I then switched to Chrome. Been happy ever since! Not that I have anything against Firefox, its still a great browser...just doesn't work well on my PC anymore. IE? Well...I refer to your statement on the matter, AFDozeman.

I'm sticking with FF. You should give it another shot with version 19. I can't remember the last time it crashed on me at all running Linux Mint 13. I do remember plenty of crashing and memory leaking back in the older versions of firefox but it seems to be rock solid today.

avatar

AFDozerman

Agreed, firefox is back on the straight and narrow again. I'm on the border between it and chrome. I wish Opera would fix their problems, and I'd go back in a heartbeat.

avatar

TrollBot5000

Yeah I remember when I was experiencing slow browsing which turned out to be comcrap's dirt slow DNS servers so switching to opendns fixed that. When I thought it was browser related I tried out Opera again and noticed even with the excruciating comcast dns pages loaded noticeably faster BUT opera just still seems to really lack in the extensions department thus making it a deal breaker for me. I'm about to donate the 30 bucks to the mozilla foundation to get my nifty official T shirt.

avatar

AFDozerman

My dealbreaker with Opera is that it seems to have horrible issues with not rendering some of my favorite sites and crippling functionality. For instance, I can't comment on MPC with opera because the comment box mysteriously disappears. It's a shame, too, because I absolutely love being able to group my tabs in opera and their speed dial syncing is great because they are pretty much the only third party browser avaliable for my blackberry torch.

whr4usa

that's odd, Opera 12 x64 has never given me issues commenting here

On the other hand, I've been having problems with MSIE 9, so I'm eager to try Internet Explorer 10 . . .

Microsoft - bringing you stuff you don't really care about.

Ever since Google released Chrome and stopped blabbing about version numbers, I've come to realize how Unimportant version numbers are for something that should be in a constant improvement process, like a web browser.

Microsoft is still playing the usual game of "look a new version" and "hey you can only get the new version on this OS, unless we decide to be nice and release it on a previous OS for you."

Funny how Microsoft has such a slow development and release process for a web browser (something that should be in constant development) yet is moving to a constant development and release process with their OS, where you need stability (re: Windows Blue.)

Microsoft has it backwards.

avatar

whr4usa

you're correct in principle and I agree in practice but you've got your development factoids a bit backwards

with IE you, users, technicians, administrators etc. can always know exactly what it supports on which version of windows and how long it'll be supported and when it'll be patched and with what future releases and toolkits it'll be compatible

with Google you get a single browser that even within a single version might support 3 separate but overlapping featuresets depending on whether you're using the Windows 8, Windows XP or Linux editions of it or a third-party repackaging of it

versioning is very important still, almost more important now than it ever was, it just (should) have less to do with the codebase and more to do with support issues (something Mozilla learned the hard way when it moved to a rapid release schedule without making a canonical-style LTS provision initially)

as per usual, Microsoft doesn't have it backwards, people just refuse to research anything properly and go with their premisconceptions about competitors to their product of choice

Thank you for the link to download it sooner than later, but is there a way to explicitly prevent the upgrade (at least for now)? I'd rather not wake up to a new browser just because someone else says it's for my own good.

...not that I use IE very much as all, but still.

avatar

whr4usa

scatter means well and is technically correct but on most oem images that method won't 'stick' and can create other issues down the road under certain circumstances or with atypical network, hardware or OS configurations

try this instead;

Got to windows update, check for updates, find the update to Internet Explorer, right click on it, choose 'hide update'.

Does it really matter that websites load a second faster than before? I chose my browser because of features and options, not because of load time. This is the era of broadband. The majority of us aren't on 56k modems any more. For the most part every browser loads pages in a second or so.

avatar

illusionslayer

You're right, we should have stuck with the first few rendering engines we came up with and called it good enough.

avatar

Scatter

That's really not what I meant and I'm sure that you know it. I just don't think that shaving a fraction of a second off of the load time of a page is really that big of a deal considering how fast they already load.

manageability, maintenance and security then options, compatability, featureset etc. in that order.

Hey.That_Dude

Because anyone on this site waited for it... does anyone here NOT use Firefox or Chrome?

avatar

Ledoubleu

I have all 3 installed on my home computer but offsite work requires IE. I have used Chrome but I'm actually hobbled by it because it only allows a single session whereas I can have multiple sessions and file network access simultaneously using IE. Our IT department won't support Chrome or Firefox (Or Linux/OSX or anything else for that matter).

avatar

Baer

I no longer use Chrome. There a number of reasons I do not like it and the fact that it gets pushed on some of our employees computers almost clandestinely when getting other updates has actually angered us and made us proactive in avoiding both it and that useless Google toolbar

Google Updater and Apple Updater are probably the biggest security holes in history, regardless of which OS you're using, besides Air/Flash and Java

avatar

I'll wait a while to make sure it's stable. I tried the Beta some months ago and got my first BSOD on Windows 7.

avatar

Zanshi

That's odd, because I have IE10 beta on my desktop, and I haven't had a BSOD at all. Just because YOU had issues, doesn't mean others did.

Did you look up the 0x code in the MS Knowledge Base?

avatar

Ledoubleu

yup

avatar

whr4usa

if you got a bluescreen from a beta component update there's a lot seriously wrong with your system that has nothing to do with IE10

Has Wintel been kicked? I haven't seen him/her around for a while.

avatar

rsaotome

And from the looks of it, all the posts made as well.

Finally!

Thank you MPC!

avatar

TrollBot5000

ahhh so thats what happened with that Lian Li case post. I was wondering why there were only 12 comments. I was drunk and left some stupid comment about it thinking maxpc was censoring its articles. that can't be right though. out of 45+ posts over 30 of them couldn't all of been wintel accounts....right? if thats true then that guy had wayyy wayyy too much time on his hands.

avatar

AFDozerman

Ahh. Drunken posting on MPC. You aren't the only one doing it, my friend... I"m drunk right now.

myh1tlist101

Rsaotome I approve of your name. By the way how does he hold himself like that. Now I want to watch Ranma 1/2 instead of doing homework. Damn you...

avatar

Neufeldt2002

Wintel's account is deleted and I would assume IP has been banned as there has not been a new account claiming anything, but sadly the fake accounts are still around. I have sent an email to the webmaster with the fake accounts and the real ones that they were created from and suspected other accounts and hopefully they will be gone soon.

avatar

siramic

How do you "guys" pick up so quickly on what a troll/post account is? By the 1 sentence posts, or do they just try to say something controversial just to get people riled up? How do you tell?

Holly Golightly, my, that's one I haven't seen for awhile, good memory blkpanthr.

avatar

TrollBot5000

yeah it's usually something idiotic relating to macs or saying something sucks. If you click on the profiles they show they've only been created for hours or a day or two.

avatar

siramic

Thanks for that follow up, I appreciate it :)

avatar

Baer

She was so annoying... And Wintel also. Glad they are gone!!

avatar

TrollBot5000

lol. So tell me more about your apple logo bed sheets and the poster of steve jobs with the hole cut out of the mouth.

avatar

Engelsstaub

Haha! I'd actually buy Apple logo bed sheets if they had them. No shit. That would be obnoxiously cool. ...but the only poster I have in my room is an Iron Maiden "Powerslave" one. You can do that crap again post-divorce :D

Dude, you know what I would totally do if I could? I'd wear pajamas that had Apple logos all over them and go walk around by a Starbucks carrying my MacBook Pro and talking on an iPhone.

...f__k aybody. IDC.

I thought it had been available for a while now. I guess I had still been running the Beta version. In any case, the only time I run IE is when I want to open up setup files without saving them somewhere first (Firefox can't do it).
