Don't know if it was a good idea or not, but I just got thru installing IE10. Getting really tired or the ie has stopped working errors. Dont' know if IE10 will fix that or cause more errors - but thought I would give it a try.

Let us know how you like it Fay. Does it load any faster? Does everything work that worked before? It has gotten mixed reviews, but most indicate an improvement over IE 8 and 9. I tried IE 9 for a while, but went back to IE 8. I've been thinking about trying IE 10, but have hesitated because of reported cons, i.e., No built in Flash or PDF reader. Still lags on new Web tech support. Still haven't seen anywhere if you can uninstall IE 10 if you don't like it and revert back to IE 8.

HI Repa,


How can I show the effect of no built in Flash or PDF reader - what can I do and what should I expect to see? If you can tell me what do - I'll se what happens.

The Ie has stopped working errors did not bother me much for a while, but the longr I have gone, the more irritating it has gotten. Since I just got IE10 don't yet know if it will sovle tht, but have not gotten that error yet.

I did not do a lot of reading about ie10, just glanced at some things, and some stuff said it was more stable, but I don't know.

I'll post back after I have used it for a while.

Fay

You can check flash by viewing a youtube movie, and PDF reader by seeing if you can open an online PDF file. You can see if the following IRS 1040 form can be opened:

I have been a die-hard IE users, but I may end up changing. The errors about IE has stopped working are starting to get to me. I had hoped the new version would fix it, but it has not.
Have you ever found anything that explains the problem at all.

Not sure if I would want to switch to Firefox or Chrome - I really hate change LOL

I'll look to see if there is a solution to that problem in ie, but nothing concrete in past research. I use firefox on occasion, but prefer ie. I think Firefox is more secure than chrome and ie and faster than ie, although chrome is supposed to be the fastest, but a more stripped-down browser. Google also spys on you and collects data from your computer if you have an account with them from what I have read, and is in kahoots with the government on providing them with data they collect from people! Don't know for sure all this is fact, but I wouldn't doubt it! Firefox is very secure with the NoScript add-on - you chose what 3rd party sites can be allowed or not, and there is also an IE plug-in that makes it look more and work more like ie. You might find having both to be acceptable as far as how firefox looks and works.
