Can it still use Cleartype in Win7? If it doesn't, I'm not installing IE10 because it hurts my eyes not to have Cleartype.
It does. I wonder how people were able to use computers before Windows XP, what with all this eyestrain going on everywhere.
I can confirm IE10 doesn't have the ClearType issues (ie no ClearType) on Windows 7 like it does on Windows 8.
Personally, I can't stand ClearType, and have it disabled on all my Win7 machines.
However, as far as I'm aware, IE9 doesn't actually use ClearType, but uses its own rendering technology, which I absolutely despise - to the point where I ended up having to set ChromeFrame as the default rendering engine for it, and deal with all the problems that causes.
I am interested to know which technology IE10 uses, ClearType (which I can disable) or the same specific techniques used in IE9, which can't be disabled.
Regardless, now that I know there is a problem with VS2010, I can't install it anyway.
With IE 10 on Win 7 you will loose the 64 bit version icon.
Since Tuesday IE10 has been pushed through Windows Update to Win7 customers, so I suspect the answer is now "everyone has IE10, unless they don't religiously update their OS".
Updated old tablet with IE10...got "IE Not responding" on every site...installed Chrome
@evildictaitor: IE10 is available as "important update", so it won't install for now unless user explicitly run "Windows Update" in Control Panel and selected it.
Brief testing show that many of our coperate web applications won't work (I mean... won't even login) unless I put IE10 into compatibility view... that means I have to find out why and rework the login code afterwards...
EDIT: Apparently the jQuery UI widget is broken in IE10 so the project selection overlay screen cannot be shown, so the web applications stay in the login page as if they haven't login... have to wait until they fixed it.
I've noticed that if I try to upload something to Skydrive in IE10 it just gives me a regular file selection box instead of how it used to work where you could drag files into your browser window. I don't use SkyDrive very often so maybe that's just the way it works now but I'm thinking maybe it's because I installed IE10.
I love having a built in spellchecker though
Another dev and I installed it on our work PCs. No difference visually from IE9, but I have noticed some odd JS issues. Our main external site menu doesn't work at all, a forum I post on swallows enter presses in the reply box, etc. Switching to IE9 mode fixes them.
Have it installed in my Win 7 ultimate dev system as a test environment for our silverlight applications. Seems to work well, no additional issues to note...
