Is I.E.10 worth installing on Windows 7 desktops

Am I going to see any improvement by putting I.E. 10 on a Windows7 desktop or is it just for touchscreen laptops running W8

At the moment it is only compatible with W8 but a preview will be available for W7 later this month.

If you are thinking of installing it it will take about 15 minutes and Your favorites are saved and work on I/E10.

Not much difference between it and I/E9.On the theory that you are going to update eventually maybe be best sooner than later.

Now there were about 10 Windows updates from last night which I downloaded first and then installed I/E10.

So far so good.

1st minor problem it does not refresh the page when required. As I mainly use Firefox it is not a problem for me.

I, too rely on Firefox, up to version 17 at the moment and it does have many useful add ons but now and then there are sites that are better or designed for Internet Explorer. I get a lot of trouble with IE9 which mainly is it switching itself off , that prompted me to ask if IE 10 was better but suited for desktops as well as touch screen tablets.

So far I have found no problems using I/E10.W8 I don't like but IE10 is Ok.

Did you say it was W8 you didn't like, I've no intention of going that route, I only changed from good old XP because I had a new computer with it installed.

Who knows, W8 could be another Vista and I could find myself jumping to W9 however far behind that is.

I don't like touch screens at all, I have enough trouble with my Lumix Windows phone and the touch screen.
