Desided to switch to chrome like everyone was suggesting. - Page 2

post #11 of 15
The things with IE is it has come a long way to compete and compare with Chrome. If you go back and install IE 7 or 8 and the same version of Chrome back then, you'll see a big difference. With IE 9 they decided to finally give in and throw in a lot of features that chrome already had including the looks and way it was set up. IE 10 perfected that.

SO now if you look at both chrome and IE 10 side by side, it's almost the same. It's just a matter of preference at this point. I use chrome because it's synced with my desktops, laptops, and phone. So I always have access to everything. But IE is not a bad choice nowadays.

IE10 is pretty good, my only complaints with it are negligible "I don't like this because it's not how I'm used to it" type of things. What makes it or breaks it in favor of chrome for me is how small it is and how easy it is to get "your chrome" on any system with the browser installed.

With chrome, it is so tiny and lightfooted, even when it is crashing or something it has little effect on the rest of the system, whereas a major IE or Firefox crash can bring the whole system down with it.

Then there's the just awesome syncing features. You start chrome up, put in your google account info, and moments later chrome has set itself up to be indistinguishable from your experience on every other machine you've signed into, right down to your extension and user scripts. My browsing experience is literally identical as I go from my gaming tower, to my chromebook, to my dell workstation at the office.

I must be living in opposite world. I have never heard anyone give praise to IE --ever. IE has almost always been "the browser you use to download a real browser".

Perhaps, IE 10 is the bee's knees? I'll never know because I've worked with IE long enough that the hatred I have for it is permanently ingrained in me. Maybe I'm missing out, but somehow I very much doubt it.

To be fair, since I was using IE9 consistently and would install firefox and chrome at many times, I actually noticed a few features that chrome copied.
Like the "card" sites. Chrome didn't have this but Ie9 had it from the start. It shows you large "cards" of your most visited website.
I like the way IE10 does those cards a lot better.

Also the autocomplete URL, that's something that I noticed on IE long before chrome, and I love that. I still think chrome doesn't do it right. which is kinda annoying when you're so used to it in IE.

I have never seen this happen in my years of using IE9~IE10. I've seen it happen with firefox at work though...
god I hate firefox...

but IE10, nah I've never seen it bring down a whole system

HOWEVER MY BIGGEST GRIPE ABOUT IE10!
I was benching my new laptop build right? I had IE10 set as default on 3dmark11.... I was getting weird drops in 3dmark11 scores...
da hell? almost 2 ~300 point diffences.
Set chrome to default and restarted the system my 3dmark11 Pscore went back to normal ... what the hell IE...?
After overclocking and benching I went back to IE10, but cmoon... I like you IE10, but why you do me like that? mad.gif
