      Nope. I have just removed IE10 and would definitely not recommend it at the moment.

      It was absolute <Removed> <Removed>. A pile of <Removed> <Removed>. I think that they picked it up from that sewage treatment plant in Scotland.

      I stopped using IE a while ago. I used to use it for accessing the router details, but it started acting up so I dumped it completely and now use Chrome for that and FF for browsing. I don't even use it on Win 8, although it is supposed to be good on that. I was going to try it on Win 7, but given your experience, I think I will hold off until they sort it out a bit.

      Taking bets that someone jumps in and says it is wonderful.

      Re: Accessing Webmail

      I have various browsers installed on this laptop. However I have accumulated a large number of links which I do not wish to lose.

      I know that you can import them into other browsers, but you just can't copy them between computers as easily in my experience.

      I am currently trying different browsers on my torrent PC, which has Win XP. IE8 has become too slow on it. I've been using Chrome and it just doesn't do what I would like to do. I installed Firefox and will be giving that a try next.

      Re: Accessing Webmail

      I see that the Sky Webmail sign in page has been changed to yahoo style.

      If you like Chrome but dont like some of the Google features then try Comodo Dragon (my default browser) which is a tailored version of Chrome.

      I cant understand whats wrong with IE10 on Win 7.
      Recent tests I carried out showed loading speeds on Win7 64 to home page in the following order with no errors.
      IE10
      Comodo Dragon
      Chrome
      Safari
      Firefox
      IE9
      All were the latest versions other than Chrome which was the latest beta version and not the last release

      The sign in screen in both their forum and on the website have also both changed style as off this morning too.

      I noticed the forum sign in, but got busy with the threads and forgot to raise it. I have just checked the website and found it was the case too.

      As for why IE10 messed up so badly, I don't know. I'm back to using IE9 and it has been working fine once more.
