    Disable Internet Explorer 10


    Haven't seen any post yet concerning this, but if so by all means redirect me. Just wondering what are the ramifications of disabling ie10 in windows 8 via windows features. Can I expect any issues that would impede windows 8 from working properly, or issues with Firefox 16+.

    No, things will work fine (the base engine gets left around, but the IE app pieces that use it will be removed - thus making sure things still work from a Modern UI or WebBrowser Control application perspective). Firefox doesn't have a shipping (non-beta) modern version, but you'll still be able to use the desktop version. Right now the only released/stable browsers with modern components/browsers are IE and Google Chrome.
