    Really, how so? Cuzz I find it works way better than previous versions and never crashes on me and is super smooth....remember back with previous version when you zoomed in the page to like 150% it would looked garbled and or sometimes crash! lol

    Its bad. My back button almost completely refuses to work with IE10 to say nothing of wonky site performance, slow loading pages, missing images, etc etc... I rolled back to 9 and wow am I glad I did. 10 sucks.

    Microsoft fixed a lot of IE10's ills with IE11, it's much more responsive now.

    They need to make 11 available for 7 sooner rather than later. They have recently confirmed plans to do just that, but I fear it will be when 8.1 drops live.

    No, IE 10 just sucks in Windows 7. Not that I loved it in Windows 8.
