IE_h_cLast month, Microsoft finally broke silence and announced that a preview version of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 will be coming in mid-November. It appears that tomorrow will be the day when Microsoft releases the latest IE10 browser for Windows 7 users. According to Chinese technology blog iFanr, who attended an IE10 media press event in Beijing earlier this afternoon, noted that Roger Capriotti, Director of Product Marketing for Internet Explorer, had announced that the preview version of the browser will be released for download tomorrow.

      I sincerely hope you don’t actually USE Internet Explorer….it hasn’t been innovative, impressive, “fast”, or anything new since Netscape was around.

          As far as IE9 is concerned, it was an improvement and is the step in the right direction. However, browsers still have it beat in standards support because competing browsers just update themselves all the time, while IE is a per OS upgrade normally. Microsoft needs to become like their competitors if they wish to stay alive.

            See, another idiot. I.E. updates with any Windows Update that occurs on a weekly (or more frequent if needed) basis. And, I.E. supports HTML 5 fully and more. How do you guys survive from day to day? I sure hope your job isn’t in computers…

          • http://www.techmansworld.com/ Michael Hazell

            IE9 does not support the latest HTML5 stuff coming out. I do have a job in computers, and I even run my own tech site (Techman’s World). IE9 still doesn’t support the simplest of CSS rules. Oh, and watch your mouth. Take your (worthless) personal stabs somewhere else. If you think I’m wrong, then start a website and try some of the newer HTML coding. Subject: [liveside] Re: Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 preview coming tomorrow

            Michael, hate to break it to you, but you’re wrong. The CSS rules you talk about are not HTML 5 compliant either. Both Chrome and Firefox have been going outside the standards now too. So none of the browsers are perfect, as you might think. In the end, the browser is NOT the concern. It’s the user, and they all use something different, so if you can’t code to meet that need you are failing.

          • http://www.techmansworld.com/ Michael Hazell

            What is a rule that is not standards compliant? I’m pretty sure that those rules should become compliant as well. Nevertheless I don’t care that much for IE9 as it still can’t beat Chrome or Firefox. IE10 probably won’t either as the other browsers can be one step ahead of it instantly with an update.

          • narg

            One other fact for you Michael, no browser on the market support HTML 5 fully. So your arguement is not very well applied in this case.

          • Nummy

            the latest version of Internet Explorer is v9.0.10 which was released on 21st September 2012, how is that slow?

          • http://www.techmansworld.com/ Michael Hazell

            Those are security updates. Not standards support updates.

            OK, idiot, what’s coming through the updates now? I.E. 10! Get a clue.

            Did I say IE10? I was talking about IE9. For the last time, I’m not an idiot. Take your worthless attacks somewhere else. Subject: [liveside] Re: Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 preview coming tomorrow

    There is Chrome…and Firefox…and Safari…and Opera…and every single other browser in existence that happens to be faster and stabler than IE.

    I’ll look into the beta if I can, for the sake of my own website. However, I still will most likely use Chrome after trying IE10 because I have gotten so used to Chrome. Hopefully IE will pull itself back together.
