    That's a matter of opinion.

    Ever since IE started that 125% zoom crap, it became useless for me. Probably since i use medium fonts, it gets all distorted. If i set zoom 100%, fonts are tiny. At 125% it's too big and photos are losing crispness.

    That's why i still have IE8, which is what Win7 came with and i don't bother about IE10,11,12.

    When and if this happens, as I have been watching this for a good while, all are encouraged to examine all the scenarios presented prior to opting for IE 10 under a Windows 7 operating environment.

    No, it's the same as with manually changing zoom level with the mouse. If i increase zoom, fonts get big enough, but images get blurry. If i reduce zoom, images get right, but fonts too small. This problem exists only with IE and only since they made this 125% default zoom level. Chrome and Opera have no trouble to render correctly the pages.

    So i 've put IE in pension. I use it in the rare occasion that Iron has a problem with a page.

    I don't really ever use IE anyway & haven't for years. I don't think that IE 10 for Win 7 is as fully functional as it is for Win 8 anyway. Maybe it should be called IE 9.5?

    Have you tried to change the font? Not the size of the font, but the font. What font are you using?

    The default fonts... I haven't changed anything. Simply the Windows setting for fonts is 125% (Medium).

    Don't worry, i wouldn't trade Iron for IE anyway, so it's not a big issue. Just saying... Simply i 've used more IE6 than i 've used and ever will IE8 or 9, because of this issue.

    Awwwww, the nostalgia! It's heartbreaking! To IE i owe the fact that today i am Wilders' member! How many trojans had dropped into my IE temp files! How many activeX had infected me before i got fed up and decided to learn why i get infected! It's so touching to rethink of these moments MS and IE gave me! IE was there to make me learn about PC security, it took me by the hand and taught me.

    Thank you, IE! You can't forget your first malware, i guess, can you... :'(

    About time. This is the only browser I would use for daily browsing, besides Opera and IE9.

    Very good, :D

    Their marketing department used to be the worst (almost non-existent), nowadays they are doing fine in this area (maybe they weren't proud of IE before?)

    Best video from IE Team marketing IMO:

    Holy Crap! when did MS get fresh players on their marketing team?? This and the vid JeffreyCole posted are the right track. Their surface commercials are pretty damn good too.

    IE10 "preview" tested with W7..too buggy!! I stick with IE9 for now.
    I would not use it anyway, but my company's intranet is not set for other better browsers..:(
