IEv10 vs IEv9?

    I'm running Win7 64bit and IE9. Today, I had 12 Important updates
    available and one of them was IE10. I installed the other 11, but not
    IE10 as I have being see mixed reviews on IE10. So, my question is,
    how does IE10 compare to IE9 and what does it offer over IE9 to make
    the update meaningful. How do the two compare in normal Internet
    Website processing?

    Thanks for any insights!

    I think it loads web pages a little faster, but other than that, I see no
    discernable difference between it and IE9.

    (I just tried it on your CFCU site, and it still took 12 seconds to load
    it.)

    Tom,

    I went ahead and installed it. I agree with you, it seems to be a bit
    faster and I have not encountered any problems yet. After installing,
    I spent a lot of time in it going to my favorites sites and did not
    encounter any problems. Thanks for the reply and as in the past, I
    will trust your advice :)

    You're welcome. I did run into one small problem a couple of hours ago, but
    I don't think it's IE10's fault for certain. I went to one of the sports
    streaming sites that normally works fine, and it wasn't displaying quite
    right. I clicked on the Compatibility icon, and the whole thing became
    unusable. I had to close it and reopen it to get it back to where it was,
    but the next time I clicked on the icon, it didn't change anything, so I'm
    thinking it was just the site having a small problem and not IE.

    And thanks for the props :)

    That is interesting, because I ran into a similar problems on a site.
    On MSN.com, on the home page, it presents the highlights of the day,
    up to 8 and have an item from 1-8 that you can click on to go from
    highlight to highlight item. That is now not working in IE10 -
    clicking gets you nowhere. What site are you having the problem with?

    Try MSN.com and tell me what you think?

    I had no trouble at all with MSN.com. The arrows worked well, going forward
    and back, and the Halle Berry story link worked just fine <wink wink nudge
    nudge>. I didn't even have to click on the Compatibility icon to display
    anything or make the arrows work.

    Other than that one short glitch, I haven't seen any problems at all with
    IE10. The site I was using is http://www.streamhunter.eu , but be careful
    what you click- it's always trying to download or install something. I don't
    use it often; mainly for tennis matches or football (American) games that
    aren't televised in my area. The quality isn't always the best, and the
    broadcasts are often in something other than English, but I can suffer
    through that for a good match/game :)

    I just tried msn.com again and it arrows still do not work. Any
    thoughts on what I might have to do to fix it? I'm running the IE10
    on Win7 64bit.

    Did you try clicking on the Compatibility icon?
    I'm running IE10 on Win7 HP (x86), but if Win7 (x64) is like Win8 (x64),
    it's running 32-bit IE by default.

    You could try starting IE in "no add-ons" mode. That's located in Start/ All
    Programs/ Accessories/ System Tools, or, if you don't have that, the
    shortcut is

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff

    If it works that way, then start re-enabling your add-ons one at a time
    until it doesn't work. Then you'll know which add-on is causing the problem.

    If "no add-ons" doesn't work, you can do a reset of IE to installation
    defaults. Go to Control Panel > Internet Options and click on the last tab
    (Advanced). Down at the bottom is the 'Reset...' button. If you click on it,
    you'll see what it's going to do, along with a check box to remove all of
    your personal settings. You can Cancel now if you don't want to do it; I
    would run it only as a last resort. A better option to try first might be to
    clear your Temp files and cookies from the first tab (General, Browsing
    History).
