    IE10 OK to use or stay away?

    Building up our standard image for the summer, is IE10 OK to include or are there any issues with it? We use Group Policy to send out the proxy settings but have heard if issues with that, whats the general consensus?

    Not sure from a GPO view but fro personal use it is fine, quicker and has some cool features when used in touch mode.

    Main thing is to prepare your servers to administer the preferences. Internet Explorer Maintenance no longer works (and indeed it disappears if you install IE10 on the machine hosting the console). So, you need Server 2012 or Windows 8 with RSAT to create a GPP item for IE10 that'll then work with Windows 7 / S2K8R2 and later machines. You can also manage IE10 preferences with other tools, but we GPP to be easiest. We never managed to get the proxy setting working with Windows 8 though, even though it works on 7.

    I'm using Windows 8 so its on by default.

    The ONLY issue I am aware of as it affects UAG 2010 - in fact, if you use UAG - don't use IE10!

    You need UAG SP3 for it to support IE10 - and we can't use SP3 due to the IE bug with File Access - not likely to be fixed any time soon due to MS deprecating the feature from UAG!

    Not had any issues other than this, but I need to keep at least one IE9/Win7 machine so I can use the UAG

    have you tried the fix in Microsoft UAG 2010 & Windows 8 Support As we use UAG with Windows 8

    I released IE 10 for windows 7 a last day of term on the WSUS(got my dates of when term ended mixed up), only problem we have come acrossed is something to do with downloading files they fail to download properly. i have the details at work i'l post them when i get in tomorrow.

    I installed it at home and it broke our Exchange 2007 webmail. May or may not be relevant to you.

    I have problems with IE10 and assigning sites to zones, it works fine on IE9 but not at all on IE10.

    In my opinion, it's not quite ready yet for non-home users.



    Neither of these occur on Windows 8, so it's clear that there are issues with the Windows 7 build that you won't see on Windows 8. I can't help but wonder how many others there are that we haven't found yet.

    Personally given the issues I've experienced with IE10 on Windows8 at home I'd steer clear of it for now. It doesn't really have any stand-out features beyond what IE9 offers and seems to break a lot of websites in my experience.

    For info, IE10 is not supported for SIMS .net reporting until the Summer release.

    I have seen the odd error with OWA on 2010 as well as on this forum and some other sites the enter key does not work unless you are in compatibility mode.
