they still have alot of work to do for IE10 metro version imo, i feel that they don't need to still show the page when you're trying to go through the favourites to find a site and they really should have folders for them as well
but i must say, they've definitely made it better than the ones in release preview, just hope they update it fast

To say something is a flaw because a feature is missing doesn't make sense. There's no SilverLight, is that a flaw or just something that's missing? Obviously MS didn't think it was important enough to put in this version of IE. Maybe in a future update, but in the mean time it's there and waiting for you in the desktop version. OK??
20 browsers is quite a number. You must be going back to CompuServe and Prodigy.

He doesn't come off as a fanboy at all. Is it a flaw or a feature not in it?
Sorry you don't like it...but i don't think many people are sitting in their history on their tablets (at least i have never once pulled it up on my iPad).

having an argument over semantics isn't terribly productive...whether it's an intentional function left out of scope, or a true design flaw.
having the ability to organize/sort favorites and view full history is not really necessary...possibly even a bit overly cumbersome on a tablet. that said, having the ability to change over to the desktop app gives you the flexibility to do what you want/need.

The browser does have history, what part of that are you missing? Use IE on the desktop if it's that important. To make it easier for you, why not just replace the IE Metro tile with a shortcut that takes you to desktop IE? Problem solved. Then you will have your "flawless" browser.
Still waiting for that list of 20 browsers. And I don't mean counting IE 4,5,6,7,8,9,10 as 6 browsers. Or Chrome on 3 PC's as 3 browsers.

i don't know how long MS had been working on IE10 app version, but im pretty sure they still have alot on their plate to update it, good thing is, like others said, at least we still have the desktop version to fall back on

By the way, this argument is moot as there is a history in the metro ie10. All you have to do is click on the URL bar and start typing -it will pull up all websites you have visited that have that phrase in it. It is a list and is different than the favorite and the frequent tiles that pull up when you first click the URL bar and before you type. I like it much better than the relic history in other browsers where you have to go through day by day. It is much easier to search than to hunt through folders.
