4. Explorer 10

4.1. Pros

4.1.1. IE10 actually respects web standards, which is another big step in the right direction. Facebook, Twitter, Google, Google Drive (where this post was written), and denverpost.com all worked flawlessly, without having to resort to the sneaky little “Compatability Mode” button like so often had to be consulted with IE9.

4.1.2. Microsoft definitely knew its reputation of being the slowest browser around, and this update seems to at least get parity with the competition.

4.2. Cons

4.2.1. IE used to be a hotbed of terrible toolbars, and unfortunately, that’s still the metaphor that it tries to force on to anything that tries to extend the functionality of the browser.

4.2.2. Still missing some HTML5 features.
