MS has released IE 10 – probably in the hope that it will win back folks who’ve migrated to Firefox and Chrome. Wanna bet?

Currently Firefox holds 20% and Chrome holds 17% of the browser market while IE (all editions) holds about 55%.

Since IE10 was tied to W8, it’s exposure has been limited (apart from the “preview”). Since W8 is only at 2.3%, MS is releasing IE 10 to try and compete independently from W8.

Download link:  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/download-ie

And watch out for the little check box “I would like Bing and MSN defaults”. You’ll have to uncheck that on the download page if you don’t want them.

People still use IE? Good way to mess up a good running system.

Interesting. No edit button.

By the way OP Wikipedia says Chrome has a bigger market share than IE.

Right. IE10 messes up W7 and W8. IE 10 is a speed demon, and messed up nothing.

I could care less what whoever wrote the Wikipedia article says. I base my statements on reliable sources regarding market share.

No edit button?

Try IE 10. Mine has it.

No thanks. IE isn't used but maybe once in a blue moon to access the net. I use Firefox. Why? Extensions. Customizable add-ons. Bookmarks are handled better.Rest of the house uses Chrome.

I haven't seen the edit button since they did a forum upgrade a few days ago. The quote button is missing as well.

There's an article about IE 10 on yahoo news. I scrolled down to the comments and you wouldn't believe the remarks I've seen. Most weren't willing to go for it. According to the article MS wants IE 10 as an upgrade for all those Win 7 computers, 730 million of them, they say its fast but could they at least make it look good and skinnable.

OK I can see the edit, quote, and other buttons while using IE9. Been awhile since I have used IE. In Firefox the buttons disappear. Even with Adblock disabled the buttons still do not appear.

Here's one for the books. I'm at the download page for IE 10 and on the bottom it says Internet Explorer download so I click on it. All of a sudden its taking me to beautyoftheweb.com not....to the actual download page. Microstuff really does need to get its act together IMO.

Well there you have it.   Following your kind of reasoning/comments one would have to now conclude that Firefox sucks.......... 

 

 

 

EDIT:

 

For the record.  On my PC machines I have always used IE and nothing but.  On my various iDevices only Safari.   Firewho?.......bah.......hehe

Well the buttons work in Chrome as well. Wonder why Firefox isn't working right even with Adblock disabled and removed.

I dunno....everything is working for me. Although I'm still seeing the view edits button on The_Monk's post this time. BTW....downloading IE 10...it comes with required updates and...may contain other MS software despite the fact that I unchecked the Bing and MSN defaults. We'll see what that's all about.

No worries. A reboot of Firefox cured it. Thanks Jafo.

Yes Ross, I took note of that as well and it did give me pause. But so far my browser speed has been impressive, and hopefully Microsoft has not compromised my privacy with the "other MS software" .......we'll see.          --Ace --
