Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 is a waste of time

Internet Explorer logoInternet Explorer 10 is currently the default browser on Windows 8, but in order to let previous Windows users get a taste of the new app, the company has also released a “preview” version for Windows 7 too.

Although it’s just a preview, most of our users are complaining that it’s actually slower than many other browsers out there on the market, even though Microsoft has already said that its browser is capable of providing a “stellar” web browsing experience.

One of the biggest problems with IE10 on Windows 7 is the fact that it disables the Aero interface, some of our users have suggested.

“IE 10 install disabled Aero on my Windows 7 computer. I've spent hours trying to restore it. No luck,” one reader explained. “Same story here. Disabled Aero, and I have no idea how to enable it again,” another confirmed.

Others, however, have claimed that AutoComplete doesn’t work at all in Internet Explorer 10.

“AutoComplete does not work on my machines (desktops & laptops). Form inputs, user IDs and passwords are not remembered even if the settings in Tools/Content are OK.”

Overall, most of our readers emphasize that Internet Explorer 10 brings absolutely no improvement on Windows 7, at least not in preview form.

“Messed up my desktop, saved cookies wouldn't stick, couldn't reply on some forums. Went back to IE9, reset everything and find that 9 is as fast as 10. Hopefully when they automatically update 9 to 10, these problems won’t exist!” one of the readers said.

According to sources familiar with the matter, Microsoft plans to release the final build of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 in a couple of months, but some other people are pointing out that such an app could arrive even before year-end.

If you wish to get rid of Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 and switch back to IE9, here are some step-by-step instructions on how to do it.
