    Anyone using IE10?

    Other than to download Firefox or Chrome with, that is?

    Seriously, I will use it for just a bit, start to like it, and then rediscover why I don't really use it. The problem I'm having is that when I am on certain sites (like this one) and typing in the text field, I am unable to advance the cursor past the last character typed. As in, the 'enter' key doesn't work .

    Anyone else experience this?





    this thread is destined to be absorbed by the Windows/Apple/Android mega thread in the near future...

    Press F12 and change the compatibility mode to IE9. If that fixes it, you can add it permanently to the compatibility list under the Tools menu in the menu bar (which you'll probably have to unhide first). I use Chrome 90% of the time but I do need to use IE at work regularly and I've run into a lot of sites with compatibility issues.

    I hit the 'fn' key + f12 (as f12 is also a manual networking switch). That brought up some mini window that ran the full width of the screen at the bottom and then hit the compatibility button in the browser....

    and it now works. Thanks .

    Its rendering ability seems fine. Speed is abysmal when compared with Chrome. Also, the lack of add-ins for it make it rather meh.

    I'm not noticing any real speed differences in general, though having gone back to Chrome almost exclusively the past few days (after quite a bit of time w/FF), there have been times when Chrome would lag loading or even claim to have lost the connection/website not found.

    The lack of apps and the inability to pin tabs is sort of a deal breaker...

    It won't load to XP.

    I'm not sure what to do. Windows 8 seems to be getting bad press. Windows 7 is already history and XP is due to be killed in a year.

    IE10 won't run on Vista, either. IE10 has been 'optimized' for W8- take that any way you'd like.

    Windows 8 does have a bit of a learning curve and is meant more for a touchscreen environment than the traditional desktop w/mouse and keyboard. However, if you have played around with the Gnome Shell/Gnome3 flavors of various Linux distros... then you get used to the quirkiness sooner rather than later.

    Same here...all of which is pushing me to Apple, which, other than my iPad will be my first Apple computer since my original computer, an Apple II. First to go will be my laptop which now takes 5 minutes to boot...and hangs up on shutdown, when wife's aging PC.

    Windows 7 will have support until at least 2020.

    Plus you can still get it. Both as an upgrade to your XP
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...1&name=Upgrade

    And as an OEM on a fresh build.

    OS X has it's own quirks and irritations when it comes to working in an enterprise environment but it is fantastic for Internet browsing and simple video editing. I'm typing this on a 4 year old MBP pro with a 17" screen and a Core II duo and I prefer it to my less than one year old Sony Vaio. The trackpad is such a differentiator. There's no comparison.

    Ah, the beauty of telling Corporate America where to go. A workforce dropout after the third "downsizing" layoff in 10 years and becoming self employed. Actually, if Apple ramps up it'd emterprise environment package, I wonder how much longer before Corporate America tells Microsoft where to go (like they did with IBM). Remember Microsoft forced virtually every corporation to retrain virtually every employee with the radically different "new Office" that began in 2007. Now we have an operating system that emphases play over work. Went by the Microsoft Store at the mall last week and they had a display immediatel outside their store encouraging teens to draw all over the screen...which they were. Just what a corporation wants their employees to do - as if football pools (real and fantast) and basketball brackets were not distraction enough.
