Not that's the only sheer ignorance that's been posted so far

I'm sure people will use which ever browser they use in any version of windows.
Sure isn't any primary reason to upgrade to 10 for.

It will be if they announce it as Win10 exclusive

And that would make total sense because it's already known that MSFT is NOT killing off IE. So there will be IE updates for older versions of Windows, but Spartan for 10 (and possibly 8, though somehow I doubt it)...

Senseless sounds better,
I like most people here are testing 10TP
The last item I'm considering is a browser which are a dime a dozen,

I could very well use ie11 in 7 to get a feel for 10's version there's no difference beside a silly smiley face next to the favorites star :/

If that's all it takes for you to step up to a newer os then 8... would be your os wouldn't it allot of hype was pushed about ie10-11 then
Why hang with 7 :/
I do because so far 7 rules

Recently I find myself using my browser 99% of the time. All the programs I used to use on my PC have either been replaced by cloud solutions (Office Online, for example, or Spotify) or I just don't have any more need for them.

Literally all that I've got installed on my PC right now is PeaZIP, Adobe Reader, paint.net, Spotify, TeamSpeak, Skype, Steam and Origin... That's it. Literally everything I do in the browser, in my case - IE.

So yeah, in my case it's the browser that's make or break for upgrading to 10.

Then win-8 is what you should be using not 7 ie works the same there is no difference.
Net gain in that respect is zero.
8 sold at first for 14.99 or 19.99 as a upgrade I expect the same early bird special for 10.

There's a lot of stuff I didn't like about 8.x at the time so I didn't upgrade to it, regardless of the fact that IE might perform the same as on 7. Though it doesn't, it's actually better on 8, but still.

But "Spartan" won't be IE, that's the main difference between 7/8.x and 10

lol what a non internet explorer from Microsoft now that funny
It just one silly setting buddy not a remake.

So in 8.. you looked at the os :/
Seems a bit allot like being hypocritical considering how you entered this news thread bushing prior post to that point = classic

Installing Firefox pretty much killed that popup message

Otherwise ie is much faster than even Chrome and loading websites
Can't speak for gaming not interested in that usage,
Firefox is pretty slow still on my brief usage,

Interesting

Here is my speed test per browser that I installed using windows 7.

Using Free online browser speed test - SPEED BATTLE

Firefox 34.0.5 is 871.24
Seamonkey 2.31 is 860.71
Google Chrome Version 39.0.2171.95m is 502.50
I.E. is 433.96

Higher number equal better performance according to that site.

If that site is accurate on my windows 7 system, Firefox is the fastest with Internet Explorer being the slowest.

I compared 7 and 8 to see if there's any OTHER reason for upgrading aside from IE. And there wasn't. Even with 8's faster startup, IE's tab and bookmark syncing with my WP, there wasn't much more that I could do or enjoy on 8 that's not already on 7.

But 10 is different. First of all, it's been confirmed that, the way things look now, there actually WILL be two browsers in 10: IE + Spartan. Having two options on 10 compared to one on 7 is a plus for me. And since I'm pretty sure Spartan won't be released for Win7, and that my primary use of the OS has become the browser, there's my reason for switching. I don't see how that's hypocritical. Weighing the cons and pros of an OS based on its browser which happens to be my preferred one is not hypocritical.

Also, for those who actually care, there's been more information about the new browser from Neowin, who sources The Verge saying Spartan will have inking support.

These internet speed test require 2 browser add-ons Java and flash usually,
None of which are built into Internet explorer and neither really care about Internet explorers abilities they usually hamper operation instead of helping,
Modern browsers don't need either to load a webpage,
If the site is old it will have flash content embedded in a way a visitor will need that add-on to see it,

Odd which Firefox is faster Chrome is usually the sponsor of these test,
They also usually use an interesting routing system to gauge the speed which all of the above is suspect to me :/

I don't need a internet speed test to tell me how fast a webpage loads it's an obvious observation of which Firefox usually looses badly,
Chrome I haven't used in quite some time

And I don't use weird named browsers.
