    Yeah, run a windows built benchmark to analyse browser speed. No thanks, it'll be built to prefer IE10. I'll run browsermark2.0 for a proper test.

    At last the Gmail bug has been fixed. I can finally click a link in an Email and then go to a different website without it freezing. Its possible it was eventually fixed in IE9 but I've been using Firefox for a while now.

    Re: News - Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7

    Whole lot is a bit "meh" for me - since I stopped using IE, bar a few badly coded websites, a while ago. Firefox is more flexible and Chrome faster. On the Windows8 boxes I've borrowed, (I didn't buy the upgrade), though it's always struck me as horrifically slow to get that initial connection, but after than it is quicker on rendering linked-to pages on the same website.

    Work use tends to be predominantly IE (see the "badly coded websites" comment above) but even there Firefox is usable (although frowned upon by the great and good in corporate IT support)

    Maybe relevant to the figures quoted, but a lot of people I know using Firefox have it setup to masquerade as IE, so maybe those figures are a percentage point or two optimistic in favour of IE?

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Re: News - Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7

    Right now it just strikes me as FF is the leaky bloaty thing, not sure if its due to plugins or FF itself, but I've felt this way for the past few years now.

    Chrome is just fast, with a nice UI, i love the use of space for tabs and small title bar for Chrome. Only downside is google owning even more of my soul.

    Then their is IE, which sadly no matter how much they improve the rendering, Chrome has that 'good enough' vibe to it, with the UI I prefer.

    I've noticed the memory problem with FF too (although it does seem to have improved recently, I've not been keeping an eye on it for a while), but its beaten into insignificance once you have a ton of tabs open, Chrome is a terrible memory hog when used like this. Running it with the '--process-per-site' lessens the problem a bit, and IIRC you can also force it into a single(ish) thread like FF, but it's a trade-off as it harms speed and stability.

    To avoid Google stuff, you could compile it yourself, or use something like SRWare Iron, but you lose stuff like auto-update and built-in Flash IIRC.

    Personally I use Chrome and FF side-by-side, just I've forced a 3.6-style theme to work as I'm really not keen on the new UI. I only really use IE for the occasional strange website.

    Re: News - Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7

    I'm glad they have released it for Win 7. I like IE10 but most of my home PC's and laptops don't have Win8 driver support.

    I have never liked Firefox, so I stuck with Internet Explorer even in the days of IE6. I have chrome installed on my home laptop, but only because the registration page for *Microsoft* visual studio express is badly broken in IE9 and IE10.

    Re: News - Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7

    OK so I downloaded the new IE10 and ran browsermark2.0 on it, and chrome. For anyone who doesn't know browsermark tests all of the websites capabilities both graphically and compatability wise to get the best analysis of real world performance possible on a simple benchmark "score".

    Here were my results:

    Re: News - Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7

    i like IE10 it seems pretty damn fast and actually better than chrome alot of the time however I always end up going back to chrome and the main reason is that Microsoft have got rid of cleartype so the text rendering is HORRIBLE in IE10, IE9 was fine and dandy but now they got rid of one of the key things it just makes me hate it.

    If MS ever bring it back then I will jump back to it but until then I will stick with chrome which has just been updated, liking the new context menu scheme its a nice grey .

    Re: News - Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7

    In fairness there is an element of how the browser is being tested. I have noted that a lot of the anti-MS crowd do run around with a kind of selective hearing about this, once it was sunspider, now its browsermark2.0.

    My point is there will always be some functionality that is vendor specific, some performance bits which are more suited to one browser over the other.

    I fear that these benchmarks don't really take control of the 'experiance' of someone browsing the web, for instance if you've got an API that blocks until an event is complete, vs posting to a queue, it can effect performance benchmarks that are in javascript.

    For me its about the usability of the thing, I'll be honest, I just can't gel with desktop IE. I can't firefox either thou.

    Although I prefer firefox over anything else, if I had to choose I would definitely go with ie over chrome. Chrome takes way too long to boot up, and the only websites that seem to load faster on it are google and youtube (go figure). There's also just too little customizability (not including add ons) for my taste.

    I prefer to actually use the thing instead of running a fake benchmark.

    That's how I learned, for example, that Google Chrome is every bit as buggy and unreliable as every other browser: quite a bit more important than knowing it renders many things a little faster.
