    Chrome Browser Versus Internet Explorer 10 on my Tablet

    Hi , i have been using my w8 tablet for a few months now and i have tried IE 10 , Chrome , Safari , Opera , Firefox browsers on it . So far my findings is IE 10 is still the smoothest scrolling , but chrome is the fastest in loading up the page but sometime got issue of when i touch the screen , the keyboard will pop up with no reason at all , it's disturbing . Safari is third fastest , then Firefox , but the Worst is definitely Opera - this i dont know why they are so slow in loading most pages - i have compared all browsers like just loading the same Gsmarena and Gizmodo on all , try and see for yourself . IE 10 and Chrome still have some bug problems to be solved , but it's usable for now , hope they will improve when w8 is official on sale

    Windows 8 is beta, and so technically is IE10. Why not try the beta versions of the other browsers - they may or may not perform better than the mainstream versions:


    Firefox: Firefox web browser | Help us test the latest beta

    Opera: Opera web browser | Opera Next

    I don't see that Safari has a beta program

    There is another supposedly fast browser, with tablet versions, which is under day-to-day development which you may like to try Welcome to Maxthon, Your Full-Featured Browser | Maxthon Browser
