    Is Internet Explorer 10 worth using as a full time web browser?

    Hello mickey12guage,

    I can almost guarantee that you will receive varying opinions regarding your question; however, I believe it all boils down to a matter of preference on the user's part. Now, for my purposes, I have opted to use Firefox as my primary browser. Why? Just because I prefer the look and feel of it. That is not to say that IE10 (or IE11) might not work for you. Good luck with your own personal decision.

    Thank you for your response, I should have put a little bit more thought into the question before asking... I will continue using firefox as I have for the past decade.
