    This is an awesome browser.. I'm using Windows XP with Internet Explorer 8 installed. I use ths browser regularly but find no faults at all. This is a great browser. Pros: Its so simple to use. I love its metro mode and compattibility with other Microsoft Products.

    Don't like it!. Internet Explorer is the worst browser I used. it keeps crashing on me so I now use Mozilla Firefox. I did download internet explorer 10 and still the same thing occurs. I will never use internet explorer again and I am looking at not using Microsoft products again. Pros: Nothing. Cons: It need to be more stable, quit crashing

    IE. Bad HTML5 support, overcomplicated UI; terrible for devs and users alike. IE9 and IE10 aren't too bad, but <IE8 are almost completely horrible. Cons: everything

    Are you serious?. Internet Explorer 8 is like Netscape Navigator. It's old and slow and horrible. The startup takes like 5 minutes, page loads like in 10 seconds. Games freeze and lagg, Internet Explorer has problems everywhere. Pros: -less memory. Cons: - Everything you can think of.

    Internet Explorer 8. It is terrible! It will not let me download my Facebook page and the sound on Youtube is terrible. I have to go over the Chrome to get both. And AOL is compromised by this problem and says it will cost me $129 for a tech to "fix" it. Pros: Looks pretty. Cons: See above review

    IE8 Does not Even work with Microsofts own products. Recently implemented in the Government, IE8 does not work properly with Share Point 2010 portal services. The web parts and images do not display correctly or work properly. And of course, because it is the Government we can't upgrade to IE9 until it is done by committee agreement and approved globally. Pros: Works with most non-government web-s More

    just use its engine. I always have IE installed in my computer,but never use it.Actually I prefer IE based browser such as Avant browser,maxthon ect,don't like firefox,too many addons ,it too big to me who just use the basic functions. The browser I use most is Avant who is cute and easy to use.Of course I choose it instead of IE due to its stability and compatibility.

    don't like IE. If you like Trident Engine ,I suggest use the Avant browser.The download is relatively small, the interface is extremely stable, mouse gestures and dockable tabs. Pop-up and ad blocking are excellent. The ability to block ActiveX, images, Java, and more "on the fly" is superb. Pros: nothing to say. Cons: If you like Trident Engine ,I suggest use the Avant browser.T More

    What You See Is What You Get [Updated Review]. I have updated my ratings to factor in 5 things. Out of the box, Security, Customization, Add-ons and Appearance. The reason I chose these factors is because these are what cater to the average user. The average user isn't going to notice the speed difference nor are they going to care about web standards. They just want a browser that works for their More

    Internet Explorer don't perform. I am a web page developer and each time I design a web page I have to take in to consideration that internet explorer will most likely not support more advanced feathers such as AJAX that is used to enhance web page browsing performance. What does it help me to be able to implement AJAX if most people wont be able to see the full page properly? Pros: The only pro t More

    The worst browser in the World.. The worst browser from the big five (Opera, Chromium, Firefox, Safari, IE). Does not support web standards W3C, slow, crashes in complex web-pages with scripts & flash, very slow Java Script engine Trident ( Opera Carakan is in 40 times faster than MS Trident ) It is strongly connected with OS Windows and it cannot be removed completely. Epic fail. Pros: 1). Ma More

    _Zak. Though i donot use interent Explorer a lot but this is the only tool that's saves me at the end - I have palyed around it - Tweaked it - Crashed it - Done all sorts of things to it and still at the end of the day it is one of the Best Exploeres out there. This is because it is integrated to Windows - Designed to be run under windows Environment. Works like Charm ! Pros: - Nothings changed i More

    New Look, Same Outdated Technology. Internet Explorer comes with a new look and feel built off Internet Explorer 7. However Internet Explorer is also behind in technology in almost any category you can think of. It's one of the slowest browsers, it's less secure than the rest and it has less features than the other browsers. On top of that it does worse on the Acid3 test than all other browsers. H More

    Crashes the PC all the time. sorrry I downloaded IE8......... ever since the change fro IE7 the thing crashes, especially when clicking on an emailed link. trying to figure out how to purge it and return to IE7 or maybe back to Fire Fox again........ Pros: Better options for deleted browsing history. Cons: crashes daily.
