I'd be willing to try it out, too bad the MS web page it's on never starts the download it just sits and sits.... so far not impressed at all.

That's your fault not Microsoft's. Common sense states that if something like that isn't working then its something with your computer (most likely ad-blocking software). Learn how to use a computer and stop blaming your problems on companies that are doing everything perfectly.

Blah blah blah... does it have an Adblock+ add on? If not, it's worthless.

I noticed Microsoft had marked IE10 as an "important" patch to be installed.

I decided to pass.

Such underhanded trickery.....

if IE 10 does prove to be a significant upgrade speed-wise over IE9, I'm all for it. The only thing killing the Surface for me right now is using IE9 as the default browser. It sucks!

Ahmm, My Surface came with IE10 installed, not IE9.

You are correct, it's IE10 - looked last night

jgottberg

oh really? I'll have to take another look... I assumed it was IE9 since it looked identical. I'll have to check when I get home.

How has your IE performance been? The landing page via the UI seems really slick and smooth but it seems like once you leave the reservation, things get a little bogged down.

It's very fast. I did my own "unofficial" speed test. Beat Chrome with every address I put in, some pages loaded significantly faster.

Yup, I have been using it for a day now and it is fast and except for that no other changes that I can see. It was a transparent upgrade. I will load it on our other computers today.

Unless there's some absolute must have feature I'll pass.

That was easy, a quick and painless download and install.
No problems here, it does seem fast and I am not seeing any compatibility issues with sites as well as on line gaming.

This is a definite upgrade to IE9, IE9 slows down sometimes and loads like a turtle. This Preview is fast, and responsive, and also brings pages faster.

I'd need to see some metrics, first. One does not go after gutter trash when you've been dating supermodels for years.

I dunno. Sometimes a trashy woman can rev you ya up pretty good.

Oh wait! We're talking about browsers here aren't we? My bad. :-)

Love it. I'm going to have to steal that line from you...

Be my guest! No room on the internet to be VISA, right?

I'm noticing the speed bump on page rendering.
