    That is awesome, haha.

    I actually stopped using IE when Xbox.com quit working on it. I could not ever sign in, no matter how many times I reset everything...so I moved to Chrome. Now on my Win8 Touchscreen, I am back!

    Microsoft's new advertising continues to impress across the board, except Bing, which is a product I love. But overall, they've really turned things around.

    lol, you act like you're buying a house. Trying ie takes no more than ten minutes. Install, surf, uninstall. Done.

    IE10 is pretty sweet on Windows 8.

    Awesome.. Made me reminisce the good times... I remember the Yo Yo very well, my friends use to compete who has the best moves and then the Modem..very slow with weird sounds to connect to the internet..I remember the floppy disks were all black and then suddenly new colors were available and everyone got to school their favorite colors, good days. Walkman and (tape+pencil) ppl who used it know what im talking about :) ....lol the hair cut, the ad got it very well.. Best memory for me was the wallet with the chain, was very helpful especially in fights. It was my weapon when things dont go well..i actually still have mine hanging beside my bed damn its long :).. Ah the shoes, i recall that all my friends who had the shoes with lights were always the cool guys then all kids got it and it wasnt cool anymore..hehe i love the ad and true it was IE in the beginning of the Internet

    I heard good news about IE10 being actually a worthwhile browser compared to the previous iteration. I've pretty much used Firefox for the last decade or so. When I got Windows 8 I decided I would give IE10 a fair chance and I havn't downloaded other browsers yet. I also like how it syncs with my Surface RT, that doesnt really have choices in the browser department anyways.

    But I'm happy with IE10 and having done most of those things in the video (except the haircut), I loved the commercial.
