Is the IE 10 preview that is available from connect a real functional Browser or are some of the functions not available? I may have posted this in the wrong section??

I downloaded it and it would not install. I kept getting these strange errors to do with IE4.inst or some such thing. Then it would not let me re install IE 9. I had to re image my PC in order to get it back to normal. I think I will now wait until it is available on Windows Update. I don't use it anyway but was just curious.

wow, not good, I haven't bothered with it yet, I don't use IE so decided to wait until its final too

Not sure how accurate this is, but when it first appeared, people were saying it also brings DX11.1 to Win 7, not everything that Win 8 gives with DX11.1 but enough to make Win 7 support it

The preview version of IE10 is VERY stable on Win7, and fully functional! ...as for your "IE4.inst" issue, I wonder if that's possibly due to a corrupt download of the IE10 Preview setup? I know I had some with the IE10 preview not installing at first, and had to redownload the setup again (and run it from a different location too - not from my SkyDrive folder!)

But I would certainly recommend Windows 7 users upgrade their IE to the IE10 preview, as I say, it's really stable, fully functional, and is a LOT more standard's compliant than IE9 - you really will have a better all round browsing experience!

I don't know, but since I do not use IE, I will wait until it is final.

Oh, I agree, IE10 still has a long way to go to match the standards compliance & speed of the latest versions of other major browsers currently available, but if you're an IE user, IE10 preview is a significant "step forward" from IE9.

We develop a browser-based scheduling app that's supported in all 5 major browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera AND Safari), and so we regularly have to use and test all of these browsers.

In fact, when we did a side-by-side test of them the day after the IE10 preview came out back in November, we actually found that IE10 preview had a higher memory consumption than IE9, and that browser start-up times were slower for IE10 preview than IE9. But those two issues aside (which I'm sure will be improved on for the full IE10 release), IE10 preview is far more standards compliant (HTML5, CSS3, etc) than IE9, and does perform better both in terms of page load/rendering times, and javascript performance.

Anyway, If you're interested, our full browser report (where, alongside IE9 & 10, we also tested Chrome 23, Firefox 16, Opera 12, & Safari 5) can be found here

Yes, we concur that a full IE10 release date for Windows 7 will likely be at the end of this month, or early March, based upon the time between when the IE9 blocker kit was released, and then when IE9 was subsequently released. ....IE10 really can't come soon enough!!
