Internet Explorer 10 review


ie10It is no secret that I like Google Chrome and I have never been a fan of Internet Explorer, not for many years anyway. In my work I need to use it, as a developer you can not disregard the fact that IE will always be there to run your web applications and as much as I like the Google browser the IE is getting better, however the browser is not really a big thing.

The upgrade to Internet Explorer did went nice and fast, when the upgrade was done there had to be a mandatory reboot (Windows way of getting on your bad side). After the reboot I ran IE 10 for the first time, I was actually surprised that it did load fast. The IE 9 on a new laptop felt like a slow car running up the highway in need of a boost injection before getting there.

ie-scrollbarOne of the things you will feel directly with Internet Explorer is that Microsoft has made changes to the scrollbar and the way it looks (I really think it looks terrible but maybe that is only me). The loading of pages with much JavaScript from different servers do load slowly. In this aspect IE 10 is no Chrome threat. However when the content has loaded then we see some real changes, the scrolling down and up are blazing fast, I really like that since it feels like a scrollbar on steroids.

Many techs remember that IE 9 was a nightmare on many JavaScript libraries since they had implement a new loading style that worked more like Chrome and Firefox does business and IE 10 is no change in this matter, it is still the same old 9 and JavaScript does not load much faster than IE. I have not timed it but since I see a change on load time without a stopwatch this is just to show that IE has more to learn from their rivals Firefox and Google.

I am happy that IE is changing but it is not really there yet, hope soon it will. :)
