    From what I've seen, there are other browser with more features than IE. See Nokia Xpress, UC, Maxthon. However, all these browser seem significantly slower for some reason.

    If you can live with a bit of speed lost, give them a go.

    PS: There are other browser. I just can't remember them.

    Try several and run them through html5test.com for a detailed comparison under the hood. :)

    Every "alternative browser" is simply a wrapper around IE/using the built in engine. It's the same as with Chrome on iOS.

    Exactly, and unreliable as shi*. Crashing and bugging out all the time. IE would be perfect if only it would get me back STRAIGHT AWAY after i press back, and not render the page again..

    I'm very happy with Fire Browser, and prefer it over IE. It has all the features that I want... I decided to buy it just to support their efforts. Now if I could only get it to scroll to top of a page!!!

    Internet Explorer is fine. Other browsers have more features but take longer to load stuff.

    I'd really like to have chrome, it's the best browser ever, in computing and smartphones . I use IE although it sucks since I don't have much choice on windows phone.

    No to Chrome. I find it to be really inefficient in its use of memory and the processor, by the way. If there's anything I want on WP, it's Firefox.

    The most feature-filled browser out there is UC Browser, but if stability is your concern, you'll either have to use Speed Mode in UC Browser, or just use IE.

    Back under WinMo 6.5 I used to use Opera. That was a real good browser !!!

    However I like what is built into my 1020. IE seems more then enough for my needs. Same for my Surface RT IE

    I'd love to have Opera, or at least I would have. Opera is moving away from Presto in favour of Chromium, which is pretty disheartening.

    Even Google doesn't want us to be suffering with Chrome. xD No thanks.

    You'll see chrome on WP about the same time you see an official YouTube app, some time shortly after hell freezes over.

    That would probably be the HTC HD2, originally runs Windows Mobile 6.5 but has been hacked to run Windows Phone 7.x
