If it can match Chrome speeds, I MIGHT give it chance.

Every time I inadvertently open up IE9 I always notice right away how slow it is compared to Chrome. There's just no compelling reason to use IE.

When you hear IE, you think of a granma. When you hear firefox you think a hot readhead. When you hear Chrome... yeah, i never met a girl that could match chrome...

All these hate for IE,
for your information, IE 9 is actually a better browser than Opera and Safari

Oh no wait, nevermind, Chrome steals your data and updates itself without your permission. Use Comodo Dragon, not Chrome, if you want a fast-ist webkit browser.

Without add-ons/extensions similar to the other major browsers, I couldn't care less how fast IE10 is.

Why don't they just use Chrome as windows web browser by default. It's all we want.

Everyone loves beating a dead horse (IE6-9)... I don't know if you guys have win8 installed yet, but I can tell you that IE10, is probably 2-3x faster than IE9. I have yet to see direct comparison with Chrome and FF, but I have a feeling the race just got tighter.

I for one don't care about speed. I care about compatibility. I care that Microsoft has been so slow to be 100% compliant with W3C standards, web programmers have to waste a ton of time writing exceptions for Microsoft's crap platform. If IE10 will display pages the same way Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc. do... I'm fine with it regardless of speed.

Yes the compability is big issue. I have many problems in work, because IE does not work correctly when rendering some pages and some funtionality does not work like adjusting the text boxes etc...

Haven't used IE for a long, long, long time. If not for those periodic cumulative IE patches i would have forgotten all about it.

And in other parts of the world only IE is used as some websites do not load up properly on alternates, welcome to the wide world of more than the 20 or so websites that you personally browse

And there are some websites that will ONLY work with IE8 or lower...

You Sir are the bane of IE. Why haven`t I thought of this before...
Now there`s absolutely no excuse to use it ;)
