    This is by far the most bizarre IE distribution strategy ever. They offer it only to Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 users, but not to Windows 8 users?

    I tried to install it on Windows 8, just in case, and the installer said: "Setup can't continue because a more recent version of Internet Explorer is installed on your computer". And my version of Internet Explorer is 10.

    Installed it and the text is horrible. It's too thick and aliased. Reminds me of Firefox a few versions ago.

    IE needs a serious UI overhaul. Like yesterday.

    Otherwise, it's actually a fast browser; faster than Firefox for sure. Can't tell the diffidence between Chrome.

    Sounds like MS are giving Win 8 a vote of no confidence.

    I'll take it for a spin when it finally gets officially released on Win 7

    Installed it, won't open. Uninstalled it and reinstalled, same problem. Oh well back to Pale Moon.
