Windows 7: IE10: Fast, Fluid, Perfect for Touch, and Available Now for Windows 7

IE's not all that bad, can font-stretch and you can strip the navigator all the way down so it can't be reused. Pretty handy for HTML intranet applications, Internet prefer Chrome.

I can't run Flash on FireFox 16, this is sad. Problem is I have FireFox setup exactly how I want it, why I don't switch. IE10 is promising.

Hmmm... haven't tried that one yet. Which router brand do you have? I've got a Linksys E3000. My firmware is currently updated to the latest version so I can't test this the update side.

Thanks for the info.
I'm using a D-link DIR-655 which is a standard Ethernet/wireless n router with excellent reviews.

My firmware is updated but I had to use another machine with IE9 and Windows 7 because apparently there is no way to do this with IE10, although I did try to bring down the security settings for this to work but to no avail, it may be possible to do so with more work.

I also can't use my router gateway settings .gws file to restore my routers settings in case it crashes, IE10 think's it's a script and therefore won't let me run it.

My worry is that if I updated all my other Windows 7 machines to IE10 I wouldn't be able to perform firmware updates on my router or access point or use the .gws file to restore the gateway settings.

I'm always puzzled by these incidents/reports, "(Firefox/IE10/Other) crashes all the time on my PC."

I've noticed this behaviour at my TAFE.
  1. All of the machines were bought in bulk (i.e. identical specs)
  2. They all use the same HDD image
  3. Some of the machines have problems with certain programs.

Firefox 17 "hosed" my "TabMix Plus" add-on (I'm helpless without it. ).

Luckily the FF installer made a backup folder of the previous installation (Mozilla Firefox.bak) so I just copied the FF files over the new ones to revert to the previous version (16.0.2).
Update was released it works with version 17.

I checked for a "TabMix Plus" update a few hours ago (in my Windows 7 VM).
I then updated Firefox (to 17.0.1) and "TabMix Plus" worked correctly.

Thanks for the "heads up" though.
