chub_tor , strangely enough, the other night, PCA site ran faster on IE10 Win 8. One moment it was opening pages slowly (blue circle) then bingo - pages loading faster. Thought it was the Towers had done something but FE said it wasn't their efforts. This happened before the new updates.
Installed a couple of days ago - does seem a little faster than IE9.
There does not seem to be a separate 32 and 64 bit version, as was the case with IE9, even though files have installed in both Program Files and Program Files (X86) folders. Curious. Apparently in Win8 you can choose to enable either version. Anyone concur?
I do not wish to 'hijack' his thread but would appreciate some advice from those of you who have updated/upgraded to IE10. I am running W7 Home Premium SP1 and IE8, with IE10 waiting in MS Updates to be installed. I did not install IE9 and hope I can go straight to IE10. My main concern is that I seem to recall reading somewhere that when installing (updating?) EITHER IE9 or IE10, one will lose the Favourites and History files. Can anyone confirm or refute this please? Also it has been suggested to me that IE9 is a pre-requisite to installing IE10 and therefore one cannot go straight form IE8 to IE10.
