    Microsoft has just launched Internet Explorer 11 Release Preview for Windows 7, so its no surprise that the company has already started a media campaign to promote the browser.

    In a blog post describing the improvements it made in Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft claims that its new browser is 30 percent faster than any other browser on Windows 7, while also loading pages 9 percent quicker than Internet Explorer 10.

    It wont be better than chrome because: no adblock and no pop up blocker. I honestly forgot about pop ups and ads until i accidentally opened IE one time and went on a few websites. I was bombarded with pop ups its was insane how bad the web has got with advertising. IE is junk
    What? Adblock Plus is available for IE, and IE blocks all popups as a default. I had to change mine to allow popups from trusted sites. Sounds like you haven't used it.

    Pure speed is not as important as what Chrome gives me:

    - ability to be signed into multiple accounts
    - full cloud sync of bookmarks, history, extensions, open tabs
    - rich extension library
    - super clean UI

    Also Chrome does not create a new window for every tab, polluting my Windows taskbar. I'm sorry but Microsoft should take a hard look at why people do not like IE and re-do it.

    IE doesn't create a new window for every tab either if you don't have it set like that. I've always turned it off as the first thing I do. I don't know about FULL cloud sync, but my PCs IE for example syncs everything just fine to my Surface. I also honestly don't think an UI can get more minimalistic than what IE10 has, Chrome certainly isn't anything special in comparison.

    What I do give you those is the lack of extensions and the ability to log on multiple accounts, especially the multiple login thing would be useful to me occasionally.

    More small things that make Chrome a superior UX to IE:

    - searchable history
    - searchable settings
    - much cleaner context menu. IE deluges you with a gazillions things, makes the context menu useless to me.

    +1

    As much as I hate Google, Chrome is unbeatable. By far the best browser to date.

    IE needs more third party support. It is a decent enough browser but when you have used FF and/or Chrome and have access to many extensions that make life much easier, it makes the transition back to IE that much harder.

    IE7 Pro was a very neat collection of tools for IE7/8. It included mouse gestures, accuweather in the status bar, ad and flash blocker, the ability to use userscripts in the same way that Greasemonkey does, drag search, customizable Speed Dial type homepage, spell checker, download manager, prefetching, text saver and more. It made using IE so much easier. The developers abandoned the project...probably to invest their time into other browsers but it's a huge shame something like that isn't available for IE10 as I'd be seriously tempted to switch back from FF.

    try changing this in settings helps.

    don't be like a child and expect everything to be exactly how you like it out of the box.

    I find it very intriguing Mucrosoft would quote figures from a 3? Year old (albeit most used) OS instead of Windows 8 figures.

    Personally I've always liked to use IE, although I do like Chrome and Opera too. Never did get on with Firefox.

    IE has a builtin adblock...
