    I think that they should fix IE 9 before worrying about IE 10. At least give it a decent freeware adblocker & an inline spellchecker! :D

    That would be classed as adding features, not fixing. It is highly doubtful you will find any information about features other than the rendering engine until beta 1. Though they did hint at a spellcheck in ie10 in one of their blogs.

    It is all a matter of semiotics ... ;)

    Since it can use Adblock lists, I do not see what exactly are you requesting here. o_O

    Much as I admire Fanboy's lists, they aren't as good as an adblocker. I'm just requesting a freeware adblocker that catches as many as ABP. I can't see the sense in paying for an adblocker for a browser I virtually never use.

    Hehe, well, I hate to be Captain Obvious here, Dave..but adblockers aren't much without their lists ;) Now I know there are certain technical functions that make ABP what it is, but, for the most part, effectiveness is all in the lists. Off-topic, I personally think Fanboy lists cover more and conflict less with websites than Easylist and others do.

    Sorry Captain, I know what you mean though LOL! :D I just thought I was getting a few adverts sneaking through that the list wasn't catching. Fanboy's Iron/Chrome list is very good. I assumed it was more a of problem with IE 9 than the lists themselves.

    Pssst .... I think that MS may have released IE 9 a tad prematurely ... ;)

    Just as lists can catch "too much", which is where the conflicts arise, they can miss things too. Also, most of them whitelist some ad servers, usually to prevent the aforementioned conflicts. However, what you deem whitelist worthy and what list makers deem whitelist worthy, can be a conflict all its own.

    Yes, that makes a lot of sense.

    Semantics?

    BTW, Vista won't run IE10 PP1?

    No, I meant semiotics. ;) In a linguistic subjective ontological way (I think).

    Vista's (mainstream)support will end on april 2012, I guess that's why IE10 is unavailable for Vista.

    That's another thing that bugs me. Mickey$oft should support Vista as long as Win 7, after all, they are virtually the same kernel. :mad:

    Mickey$oft would have liked to do so, but Uncle $crooge stomped all over that idea.

    Maybe because Windows doesn't employ a monolithic kernel model where everything is built into the kernel instead of separated into different modules, therefore just having "virtually the same kernel" doesn't guarantee the same level of support.

    Not to mention that, of course, Vista and Win7 don't have "virtually the same kernel" at all.

    Not to mention that mainstream support for Vista ends in 2012.

    (Don't feed the trolls ;) )

    Does mainstream support mean that there will be no security fixes for Vista? I honestly still don't know why they released it in the first place if they were going to terminate it so soon.

    I mean, what was wrong with it? LOL

    Vista's mainstream support will last ~6 years, not that bad I would say. There is a extented support for Vista business/enterprise until 2017 (~10 year support).

    Oh, OK. Thanks for the info. :thumb: :cool:

    (Mind you, if I do my sums right ... that still makes its support terminating in roughly 2013 if you count the 6 years from when it was released on January 30, 2007). I bet its support would have been longer if they had waited until they had got it right in the first place.

    Also, I generally don't accuse educated users of trolling, so keep me out of your personal issues with Eice.
