    I was not sure if this was an appropriate entry in this section. I know it is not directly related to Windows 8 but, like it or not, IE10 is the default. There is a surprising lack of interest on the web, regarding this feature.
    I have installed Firefox, as a standby, but am using IE10 as much as possible to see if it has any gross
    failings. So far, so good.
    Has anyone had any bad experiences with it?

    Nothing realy bad... just the same issues that I have had with 9. Locks up when starting up for the first time for about 30 sec. The Beta of 9 did the same thing and the issue is still not fixed. Other then that I have not had any issues.

    In the non-immersive IE 10, I've experienced lock ups and could not load page errors.

    Ah. Yes. I did mean the non-immersive.

    Lock ups, random freezing and clicking on links that fail to launch (in Hotmail).

    Yeah, my IE10 Explorer version has been playing tricks on me as well.

    I am running it it total compatibility mode. Not satisfactory, I'll admit, but no blocked sites so far.

    No freezing or instability either?

    Hi there

    IE10 for me using Windows 8 x-32 works absolutely fine -- I always switch it to "Desktop Mode" and ensure the default is to display all menus and toolbars

    I have stopped using Windows 8 x-64 for the moment since I have a few problems with two programs that I really need -- Vmwaare Workstation Rel 8 / vmware player rel 4 doesn't work nor does a program I need for "Stock Market trading" == "Equis Metastock".

    For serious use of Windows 8 I need to have vmware working -- I use Virtual servers etc.

    (Note there is no problem in using vmware V8 / vmplayer v4 on a W7 HOST system to bring up Windows 8 - either version).


    Video doesn't have probs either -- Sky GO works properly too as does BBC iPlayer and the UK ITV domestic channels --- Will be watching Eng V France Rugby World Cup 1/4 final in a few moments on a laptop -- Hotel doesn't have UK ITV channels !!

    Cheers
    jimbo

    Hmm... that's interesting. I'd've expected more work would've gone into the x64 version, rather than the x86 version. :/
