I have changed from Firefox back to IE.

IE10 is faster loading and faster opening a lot of sites including this one.

If anything I would say that IE10 is clearer than Firefox (on my PC anyway).

I have moved from Chrome to IE10. IE10 seems faster.

I have also downloaded IE10 and I too find it quicker on this site. Rather too soon to say if it is actually better than any other browser though.

I found IE10 (on Win7) somewhat blurry as well. It struck me as soon as I started it up.

When I went to Windows Update this am, it said 4 important updates. 2 of them (one being IE10) were not checked. There was also a critical update for IE9. I decided to check IE10. In doing so the IE9 update failed and doesn't seem to want to install again, so I guess it is not needed with IE10. Odd, because MS has been better at managing this sort of thing in the past.

Hi, I bought a new windows 8 PC late November and have been totally impressed with IE10. I have also installed Chrome 25 (for my g mail account and for translation etc) as well as Firefox 19 (for downloading you tube stuff etc). IE10 (both versions in windows 8) is very fast but sometimes prone to "stop working" now and again-but not often enough to put me off it. Firefox 19 is fast and stable but doesn't import my bookmarks etc properly from internet explorer which is a pain. Google Chrome 25 is very fast, even faster than Firefox but I don't like the fact that you have to enable the bookmarks bar to have easy access to your bookmarks/favorites etc.-and by doing so you loose quite a bit of your viewing area. All things considered, for day to day surfing etc I have (after several years of championing Firefox and despite the odd crash) tend to use IE10 as first choice, Firefox as second with chrome bringing up the rear. Obviously this is purely my own subjective findings and others may find otherwise, all the latest reviews indicate that chrome is the fastest and I won't disagree, but for me IE10 has the best balance Hope this helps!!!
