Oh my gosh!

:roflmao:

Sad thing is, this is pretty true when you go around some hard core tech forums. But I really do like how Microsoft takes crap stereotypes and satires them, it's rather entertaining!

But I kind of used to be that guy, at least there was a different video where the guy was getting rid of IE EVERYWHERE and preventing the use of it. IE 9 converted me back, and loving 10!

LOL, cute.

Funny though, since I upgraded to 8, I've been using IE10 almost exclusively without too much trouble. It used to be unstable when I was running the release preview, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Not that I don't like other browsers ... used to use Firefox at one point, and then I switched to Chrome. But right now it's IE10 for the most part for me.

I've been a very long time user of Chrome, but it was not doing well with my Windows 8. So I gave IE10 a try. Other than missing a few extensions, I see no reason to return to Chrome. Really enjoying IE and never thought I'd ever say that.

What is it about new versions of IE that really drew you guys back?

For me, I use the bookmark and bookmark bar sync feature of chrome extensively across my computers and devices. Plus I get support for my Linux boxes as well. So, for me it's not a hate of IE, but rather a need for features that IE simply does not provide.

I think for me, part of the reason is experimental. In other words, without actually using it for an extended period, you don't earn the right to say whether it's good or bad or be an authority on it. So ever since I installed Windows 8, I've been going back to IE in an effort simply to give it another chance and form an actual opinion. I wanted to see how well things would sync, like my favorites and my history, and so far that seems to work well. (I know that apparently Chrome does that as well.) Protected mode is a nice feature to have IMO, and for quite a while now it seems like Microsoft has been putting a lot of effort into incorporating various security technologies into the browser (thank goodness those old days are behind us). Can't really complain about the speed -- based on my experience, it seems fine in that area.

Ultimately it's about the whole notion of spreading my Windows 8 experience across both my PC devices, my desktop and my laptop. I'm trying to take advantage of that as much as I can, and using IE is a part of that, along with the other apps I use, like Calendar, People, etc. (I don't use Mail, though -- I use my ISP's portal instead.)

Yeah, I truly agree with the experimenting. And yes, you won't see me say that IE sucks because I don't use it. But like I say, it's not out of spite, but rather because I use features of other browsers. I love my synced bookmarks on chrome, I have them linked on multiple pc's at work, my machines at home, the chromebook that I use, and I like the fact that it works on Linux, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. I'd feel lost without them. And it eliminates bookmarks as something that I have to back up on my computers..as they are always in the cloud.

For me, I use the bookmark and bookmark bar sync feature of chrome extensively across my computers and devices. Plus I get support for my Linux boxes as well. So, for me it's not a hate of IE, but rather a need for features that IE simply does not provide.
Well, I used to hate on IE until 9 came out back with Windows 7. Even then, I hated it a bit because it caused me to do a superfluous reinstall of it because I didn't realizes the beta version of IE 9 was screwing with some things. But when it got running fine, I was impressed. It was faster than safari (yes, I did used to use safari but that was then) and it was faster than firefox. Simply, it was the fastest browser out there and I stuck with it. Later learned it's also the most secure...

But with IE 10, THAT'S a different story! The metro immersive version of IE 10 really drew me in. I love the full screen, immersiveness of IE 10. It's faster than 9, and still rather secure. It's just internet, no chrome, no tabs in your face, no distraction, just internet. When you need to see tabs and the address bar, just right click. I can pin sites to my Start Screen and keep them in a group, or pin them to my Favorites. Although some improvements are needed, like a better Recent list as Windows Phone's IE mobile has a better Recent history access than Windows 8, I love it! There is also the Desktop version, when I need it, but I don't usually use it.

It does seem though that the immersive version of IE is one of the complaints I've got about Windows 8, some find it a bit confusing and prefer the Desktop version...

Actually, if you utilize Windows 8 and the Start Screen and IE 10 and a Microsoft Account, you get what chrome offers and more, on Windows that is. When you pin a site to the Start Screen (when signed into a Microsoft Account), those IE tiles transfer over to the Start Screen on the other PC signed into a Microsoft Account. Not only that, search history (at least for Bing) carries over, which is definitely nice. I can do a search on a laptop for a Dell XPS 600 case, and I can go back to my desktop and go to Bing, that search is there. If I got a site on my desktop, I can go back to that laptop and type in the website address and get that specific link in the Recent history list in IE. Pretty neat.

Its funny because the exact reasons that I dislike the immersive IE, is the exact reason you like it. I always have lots of tabs open as I am usually at work researching issues and flipping back and forth between various tabs all day long. Last thing in the world that I want/need is for my tabs to be hidden.

Yes, I think you are right. I'd like to think I'm not a huge fanboy of any particular browser, as I've hopped around from one to another in an effort to be open-minded. I even use Safari on my Mac mini. And the way it ties into the cloud is nice because you get consistency on multiple machines -- I might not rely on the cloud completely, but for cases like this, it's nice.
