The new IE10, favorites, and two different experiences

  1. #41


    We still have to wait and see what the competition will come up with, considering the limits of IE10 in Metro mode, but for now, both desktop and Metro, IE10 is my only option, and I'm not even considering anything else.

    Even before IE9 it was the same. I would use IE, then get annoyed at some of its downfalls, bugs etc. then switch to another browser. After no more than a few days I would just miss the look and feel of IE, how it operates and what I can expect from using it, then just go back after removing the secondary browser. With IE10, even in this stage (on the Release Preview) I'm not even going to bother with other browsers.

    I don't honestly think I have used IE since IE5.

    Yes, I have tried every browser there is each on different OS' some suit one OS while others don't. I use IE on Windows, Firefox on Linux and if I was using Mac I would use Safari. Each of these Internet browsers as built for that OS in my opinion. I stick clear of Google Chrome and I use Opera for my mobile phone as well as Wii, DS and PSP.

    We seem to have the same practice in browsers. IE on Windows, FF on Linux, and Safari on OS X. I've used all the browsers in all the combinations of OSs, and this is what I'd always go back to.
