IE 10 Scrollbar - Surprisingly spartan appearance

So surprisingly spartan, I can't help but wonder if I'm seeing what everyone else is seeing: the movable bar is just a darker shade of grey. The top and bottom arrows look like this: < > except on their sides and a little "fatter."

Just curious . . .

Hello Thri,

Yep, that's what I have as well.

Thanks, Brink. At least it's good to know I'm not the only one. I wonder if this style is permanent, or maybe MS's way of letting us all know we're using the Release Preview.

Speaking of which, my copy's a little glitchy. Does anyone happen to know when the official release is for IE-10?

It's that way with IE10 in Windows 8, so it'll be that way in the official release for Windows 7 as well.

Thanks, Brink. I can appreciate the "less is more" aesthetic, so I'm okay with it being permanent. Just initially surprised at what a departure it is from previous versions. —Thri

Looks like around March, this was published February 4th 2013:

computerworld - microsoft has released tools to block internet explorer 10 (ie10) from automatically reaching corporate pcs running windows 7, a sign that the new browser will not release for at least several weeks.
microsoft has issued similar toolkits for ie7, ie8 and ie9 prior to those browsers' public releases. For the last two iterations, microsoft offered a toolkit approximately one to two months before the release of the browser.
If microsoft hews to the same timetable -- probable, since the idea is to give companies time to deploy the block -- ie10 will launch as soon as the first week of march, but perhaps as late as early april.
March is the more likely of the two; microsoft shipped ie8 and ie9 that month in 2009 and 2011, respectively.

Sounds like a reasonable conjecture if history is a predictor of the future.

Kind of reminds me of a photo I took — and then (obviously) Photoshopped — back in the Spring of 2000 when visiting the National Archives building in Washington, DC.

I guess I can deal with the glitches for a couple months; they're pretty minor (so far).

Thanks, Anak.
