Hmmm

Maybe part of the punishment will be code available to completely uninstall IE.

no problems..
Looking at my Downloads folder I installed IE10 pre-release on November 14th and never had a problem with it. RTM went flaky after checking the protected mode feature and unchecking it did not resolve the issues. Something in the system synergy I guess.

If it isn't installed, just open the software manager and type Firefox into the search box.

What the software manager is called will depend on the Linux distro you are using.

If you are using Linux Mint, you should be aware that the default icons look different to the normal icons.

IE10, installed over IE9, runs just fine on my system. Speed wise, Opera runs circles around both, IE and FF:

Maybe it's my eyes, but the IE10's font rendering engine isn't as good as FF's or Opera's.

As for browser security, IE10 and Chrome run in a built-in virtual-box; Chrome runs in a single instance of virtual-box, while IE10 runs it per tab. FF and Opera do not have this feature and it shows in NSSLabs malware test:

If I need a sandbox, I use the one that came with Avast Internet Security. I don't believe that a Browser should be an AIO tool.
