I've always been fine with IE and since it says that IE will still be in Windows 10, it's probably what I will stay with. I would imagine the new browser might turn out to be only for the "modern" UI and IE will still be the desktop version.

A browser is a tool of choice and we all have our favorites.
As long as Windows 10 allows you that freedom, What Microsoft chooses
as it's "favorite" only enhances our choices.

Beat me to it.  Works very well and is portable, meaning it does not get installed as a resident program on your system.  Good for the family tech to have in his/her toolbox.  Even allows new and fresh program installs with just one click of the mouse if you select a program marked as black text.

I tried this on a Windows 8.1 system and it didn't work properly.
Any one game to try it on a Windows 7 or lower system to see how it performs ???
