Hi folks Does anyone here use Internet explorer?If so is version 10 any good?I pretty much use Firefox exclusively but there was an update for IE 10 with my windows updates tonight.I currently have version 9 installed and was wondering is it worth installing version 109?Thanks folks!

@Batch that was the same scenario with my updates too(windows 7)although the IE 9 update installed fine for me. I left IE 10 unticked and just installed it a bit later. If you turn off clear type(desktop/properties/display)then look at this site on firefox that's what I'm getting on IE10.It wasn't like that on IE9?

BT Internet uses a modified IE9, will updating to IE10 make any difference?

Batch. I had the same experience, I let the IE10 install so perhaps the IE9 update failed because IE 10 uninstalled 9. Anyway I do not see much difference except IE 10 has a built in version similar to DNT+

Yes, IE 10 is actually very good and it can compete with the fox and the chrome-eo but there aren't many add-ons, mods, extensions/tools for it.

The only reason I switched from IE10 to Chrome was because in IE there was no option for a comfortable switching between bookmarks, where Firefox and Chrome support tons of these little customisable enhancements, take a look at at this example to see what I mean:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/%E5%BE%AE%E5%BA%A6%E6%96%B0%E6%A0%87%E7%AD%BE%E9%A1%B5app/dlmmfcbpgflaeiipmbhelananakfcodj

Other than that, Internet Explorer 10 is fast and reliable unlike it's previews versions. Good luck.
