As a web dev I'm looking forward to this. IE 9 was as step in the right direction, but still lags behind in "HTML5" tech. Now we just need windows XP to go away so we can drop support for IE8, which generally renders ok, but is sparse in the modern features department.

Mainly use Internet Explorer 10 for Netflix but its browsing speed wicked fast, even a tad bit faster than Chrome. As for Mozilla, its performance is the worst of the bunch. Been using it for years and the only reason I haven't fully adopted another web browser is because of its awesome and easy to use bookmark search, I have thousands of bookmarks and finding a thing without the search bar becomes impossible. But yeah Mozilla, is a memory hog, crashes a lot with Adobe (although latest updates have helped) and the performance is the worst. Still, it has great add-ons although I haven't checked to see if the other web browsers have those available... hmm maybe its finally time to put the ol' fox to rest.
 
Downloaded and installed yesterday. Can't tell the difference mainly because service provided by my ISP is not the latest and greatest. I don't think it matters which browser is used when Internet access is not very good.

I won't even let my mum(mom) use Internet Explorer.
I have set up Firefox for her (ADblock+, do not track me etc.), so she will not end up on porn sites or having big warning message on the screen telling her that she has been cough on child porn sites and have to pay money to.....

Try using tracking protection lists. That will get rid of a good amount of ads.

It is nice that I can finally use IE 10 as my "backup browser" in Windows 7, just like IE 9 (and 8, 7.... for previous MS OS).

Yes ! At last Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7. The only allowed completely functional browser in my school has become even better. Faster, more stable, more compliant. Uhuu.

Try tracking protection lists. iegallery.com has several.

Also, try using a hosts file. Search for "mvp hosts file". Works system wide.

Oh great, I can not wait for the error messages to begin! This plugin does not work with IE 10 and has been disabled, there goes all my printer plugins for easy web printing, again, and my printers OEM probably will not have the plugins that came wiith my printer updated, unless of course, I buy a new printer! I hope the next time, Toms does a story on printer plugins and printer OEMs, and their lack of printer software updates, every time M$ shoves a internet browser update down everybody's throats

[citation][nom]otacon72[/nom]..lol FF is memory hog of epic proportions. I had 4 tabs open and it was sucking almost a gig of ram. Ridiculous.[/citation]

I recall having about twenty tabs in one window, and two other tabs in a second window. There were also three Youtube videos as well.

RAM usage stayed around 300MB to 600MB. That's pretty decent.

I've got over sixty tabs open right now and it's under half a gig for me. It seems like you have a different problem.

The problem with Internet Explorer is that it is too interlinked with the system. This is why I will never consider it viable as a primary browser on my computer. Look at Firefox & Opera. You can easily do portable installs. Can you with Internet Explorer? Nope.

Aside from that, it's still not as good as a pimped out Firefox, so no dice regardless.
