re: IE10 on Windows 7: 5 Essential Facts
Great coverage Michael. It sounds like Microsoft is making some welcome adjustments in IE10, ones that may indeed meet users expectations, keeping Chrome and Firefox at bay. However, I still think this statement is rather telling:
>Available in 95 languages, IE10 continues Redmond's
>efforts to reclaim its status as the top Web-surfing option.
It's certainly an admirable goal for IE to be the top Web-surfing app. But so many things are working against Microsoft. For starters and forgetting version numbers (9, 10, etc.) for a minute, running a Microsoft operating system is a prerequisite. If 100% of new devices coming on line were based on on a Microsoft OS, I'd say that Microsoft stands a chance. But with Android, iOS, OSX, Linux, etc... that's just not the case. Now, if IE were cross-platform, that might be a different story.
