    Windows 8


    I can use Chrome, Firefox, Opera and I don't have anyproblems with them.
    But in Metro, just only IE XD imagine app name Chrome will be appeared someday

    have another look in start or Search. I only had Firefox and IE installed. After your post I installed Chrome and Opera. I now have all (automatically selected) in my Start?

    win8 dev


    I came to the forum hoping to find a way to kill IE10.... first thing I do on any machine that doesnt have FF or GC is, install either. I cant stand IE at all. Nothing works, not even the 8 year old girl trick. (0.0.0.0) I can handle MetroIE I think Windows should stay grounded on the hard drive, inside its house with WINDOWS and not be gallivanting about on the internets, I leave that to the information conveyancing professionals.

    So... in the meantime while I look for something...

    Ive had massive and awesome success with all browsers -- I have installed Opera a couple times, it ran fine. Ive installed Chrome maybe about 30 times since July and not one installation went amok. All have worked as advertised. Firefox has been installed about maybe 20-23 times and sometimes it just disappears, but is resolved with a reinstall. No problems for me. Win8 is a great great system, its like the most perfect OS to date, and cant beat the boot time. I just need to incarcerate the IE10.

    Cheers

    Hi there
    Can't understand what all the problem is with IE10. It works just fine -- perhaps you are trying too many addons etc.

    You won't be able to kill it anyway -- basically it's "Windows explorer" which is part of the Windows kernel with IE access enabled.

    If you don't believe me just go into Windows Explorer and type in an internet URL.

    As far as browsers are concerned there are plenty available -- choose the one you like. Personally for basic simple quick browsing I like Opera and Google Chrome is coming up "fast on the rails". It is improving fast and the new login feature with profiles etc is a great idea too.

    Cheers
