I can't remember ever hearing anything on the radio station like that before about any browser.
Odd for sure, I've never seen any news about MS on broadcast media, other than the annoying infomercials. M$ may have issued a well crafted news release to spark interest.

I can't even update my router's firmware using IE10, I have to use a Windows 7 machine with IE9 for that.

I also can't run my .gws router settings file using IE10. I'm sure that many others will be surprised to find out they have the same problems when using IE10.

I even tried to disable the security and script blocking to no avail.

Does Msoft really not work out these problems before they release a new browser version?

Sure it's more secure than IE9 but if you can't use it to do normal stuff then what good is it?

Impossible. Accounting for every crapware out there is an impossible task. Your router not functioning with IE10 is a problem with the router itself. Most likely it is browser sniffing (WHICH IS BAD) and getting hanged up on the new version number. Seen this before when other browsers reached version 10. Piss poor browser sniffing scripts saw them as version 1 instead of 10.

Either way, use combatability mode in IE 10. Is for fooling websites into thinking it is an older version.

War of the browsers? War between browsers and routers? Nothing like a little violence.

If IE8 was the Vista of browsers, what was IE6?

Hi there

Forget the IE10 preview that some might have tried on Windows 7 last November - the REAL version is superior by far.

@ poster with the router problem :

Not sure what the problem is with a Router and IE10 unless your router has some weird addressing scheme.

I've used IE10 on W8 -- and let's ignore the general abhorrence with W8 on this forum and stick to the issue (We can't test IE10 on Windows 7 yet and anybody outside an Ms test lab who says they have done this are just telling porkies).

IE10 is superior in EVERY WAY to IE9 -- for starters you don't need adobe flash to be installed any more, IE10 has minimal addons (why browsers should be full of bloated addons always amazes me --that's why I gave up Firefox PDQ), code has been considerably improved for performance and has considerably enhanced security.

Not only that the security updates for IE10 will be considerably more robust than for IE9 - that's been my experience in using it with W8 - and there's no reason to suppose the backport to Windows 7 will perform worse than it does on W8 (which is very good).

Note you get HTML5 and CSS3 support as well as HTML touch events if you have touch screens etc.

I'm talking about the standard DESKTOP -- I.E Windowed version of IE10 -- not the full screen Metro version --- on W8 it's possible to run IE10 in 2 different modes. I haven't tested the metro version as I hate that part of W8.


I can't wait to see IE10 on Windows 7

Cheers
