Mcafee 8 0 not updating

Despite that, even IE7 and 8 long trailed newcomers Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome in Java Script performance and support for new standards.

IE9 improved things on the first count drastically, but still fell short in support for all the new capabilities of HTML5 which promises to give websites near parity with installed applications.

I appreciate that I can close a tab without switching to it, as I can in every other modern browser.

But this only works if the window was sized large enough—nearly full screen on a laptop.

With Microsoft focused on Windows 8, it's no surprise that Internet Explorer 10, the company's latest Web browser version, made its way into that operating system first.

But now Windows 7 users can take advantage of this faster and far more standards-compliant browser.

This is as it should be—adhering to the Snap feature in Windows 7—but other browsers don't do this.

Internet Explorer has long been a whipping boy among browsers.I actually prefer Firefox and Opera's separate search boxes, since searching and address entry are, to me, two different operations.The sparse controls in IE10 aren't as drastic as Google's reduction to a single menu icon, and you can still enable IE's menus and toolbars, by right-clicking on the top window border.I, too, think users would be well advised to do this: They may discover that IE actually feels faster and looks cleaner than what they've been using.And its leading privacy protection tools, including the controversial default enabling of Do Not Track and a powerful Tracking Protection tool, will appeal to those who'd rather not have large ad companies creating a detailed profile of all their Web activity.

Just install Firefox's Collusion or the Ghostery add-in (available for all major browsers) for an idea of just how extensive the tracking is—especially scary is that much of it's done by sites you never even intentionally visited.
