This is the current version,

Not sure what you mean about patches but you should fill in basic information about your machine.
As stated earlier some utilities are less willing to work well with ie10.

It's an Alienware laptop running win 7 ultimate 64 bit. Hybrid gpu radeon 6970m. I just wondered if ie10 had changed in anyway other than the security updates ms rains down on us every 2nd Tuesday. It might be that it works better now but I think having had my fingers burned I will stick with IE9 until I absolutely have to. Cheers for the suggestions though mate. I think I have unfortunately become bitter towards the likes of ms and apple. I don't like changing for the sake of it. And every change is not generally for the better. Too radical and too many bugs for users to endure. I really dislike windows 8, why get rid of the desktop start menu ??? But that's another story ...

At one point nobody liked ie9 because of mostly conflicts/ changes in the downloads manager,
I have seen no noticeable visual changes in ie10 from 9 except a few different wording of internet options and a couple of extra screens in the delete browser history Settings pages.
As most things go Google only supports the latest 2 versions of a browser when ie11 full is released only that and 10 will be supported/ Not that you said anything about Google=Just saying.

Ok I tried it again. I stand slightly corrected. External browsing seems fast and responsive. Ever so slightly quicker I guess. And the pictures bug was gone so that's good. It still doesn't like my router UI but if I choose in private browsing it then works fine so that's kind of an acceptable workaround.

One thing I knew would glitch is sky go website. It doesn't display TV guides properly in ie10 but is fine in ie9. Guess sky need to pull their finger out.

So overall I say it's ok. I still prefer ie 9 but guess got to roll with the times and I don't like not being up to date!

Post a link to the website with the issues might be an easy comp-view fix.

Thanks for offer mate. I would do but sky is the main UK satellite TV provider so it needs subscription to use. It's a known issue with IE10, I checked their forums. I didn't realise f12 to change the mode would help but it seems to make it work better. Only trouble is have to do it each time in the site. Sky need to sort this out but I guess they have only had 10 months or so since IE10 came out to fix it!!!!!!

Anyway thanks. Your posts kind of inspired me to give IE10 another crack and I am happy I did now. It gave me a cold sweat but it isn't as bad as I remembered and I am upto date again. Hopefully onwards and upwards!

Cheers
Wayne

No problem if you can confirm Browser mode and Document mode the site uses ?
Also refer back to unchecking download comp-view list automatically and delete browser history to remove the prior downloaded lists might help,
To properly clear the cache, Alt+TD
Check all of the boxes and uncheck the top box/ Delete.
Then you can alter the settings boxes for the features you want to use in ie10 or as I use in the examples.
Cheers.

I have to say that works pretty smoothly, I guess that they have ironed out a few bugs. Been using from few days and didn't see any issue really, never had the annoying "this tab needs to be closed" that happened every now and then with IE9.

I know you started this thread back in August but I'm really surprised that you were able to maintain IE9 up to then without much trouble.

I say this because my Windows update installed IE10 automatically back in April or thereabouts.... I actually held off as long as I could by hiding it in the update downloads but eventually it installed itself without my knowledge or permission. The reason I held off was only because one of my favorite sites was having issues with IE10 so they posted a banner on several pages asking members to hold off.

Its funny because other sites had pop-ups every single time I visited telling me I needed to upgrade to IE10. I'm just amazed that you didn't experience that especially keeping 9 until August.

Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?
