Well most people don't use Internet Explorer anyway. They use either Firefox or Google Chrome. There are some sites that require Internet Explorer, but no so many of them now days.

The point is: Keep your system up to date, whether you use the app or not.

Well I am not going to install IE10 on Windows 7 or any other version of Windows any more than I would install IE9.
IE8 is good enough. But it could be worse.We could still be stuck with IE6 or IE7 on Windows 7 if they had not made an IE8. And you know what IE6 is like.

she thinks that because she doesn't use it, that most people must not use it.

I use both IE10 and FF17 on Windows 7 ...

I'm loving IE10, moved up from IE9.

In comparison IE8 is a slow, slow, slow pile of outdated junk that should be banned from the internet.

Yes you all correct. This says a Pre-Release version. So it may not be the Final !!!!!!

I wouldn't expect much to change in the Final release.

I'm testing it at work. The performance is fine, no complaints there. But what's with using Win8 scrollbars in the Win7 version? That's just lazy, MS.
[/quote]

not just the Win8 scrollbars, but the win8 check boxes, textboxes, list boxes, comboboxes, radio buttons...... ugh

The OP doesn't know much about computers or the software that runs on them. Don't give them anymore of your time. I'm not sure why I am even replying.

I do know that we rolled out IE9 to around 2000 computers at my work and the users were very ELATED to receive the upgrade.
The browser isn't crashing on them like before, stalling on loading up, is more compatible with websites and because I am in IT - we would like to have these computers run more secure. (We give our users administrative access).

Looking forward to IE 10 final.

They've always done that with IE... IE8 on Windows XP looks out of place too (even though it's less obvious). For some reason they hardcode everything instead of letting the OS itself handle it.

[/quote]looks exactly like IE9 except the gradients in the tabs and that have been flattened (in other words, looks exactly like it does on Windows 8 minus lack of glass)

Well I have got Windows 7 and I have never upgraded to IE9. I have stuck with IE8 which is the default version of IE that comes with Windows 7, when you install it. IE10 is exactly the same as IE9. It is slow and slows down the whole of Windows.So if Microsoft think that I or anyone else is going to install IE10 they must be joking. I have uninstalled IE10 from my Windows 8 as well. So the answer to the question will I install IE10 on my Windows 7 is NO WAY.
[/quote]

You're out of your mind and I remember some of the ridiculousness you were talking prevoisly about your setup!! Sheesh!

IE8 totally sucks comapred to IE9 and DOES NOT slow down anything!

I had asked this question already a few days ago, in a totally sepearate topic, when I installed IE10.

Does anyone know what that dllhost.exe/COM surrogate service is that now runs since installing IE10?

I know what the COM surrogate is, but can find no way to disable the service. I'm almost sure it's related to the Do Not Track feature, but not positive.

I solved that issue though by removing IE10. It is not much of an improvement over IE9 on my machines.
