Have you even tried IE 10 on Windows 8
I have. It's nice. If I had never seen any browser other than Chrome 1 and Firefox 3, I'd be over the moon to have discovered it. But I'm a creature of habit. I've gotten so used to the clean, uncluttered interface of Chrome, that I just won't switch now. So IE 10 is a good browser, several years too late.
With Chrome, Google really offered something new. To me, the fundamental look of Opera, IE and Firefox are similar. I wouldn't expend the energy to switch from one to the other unless the one I was using was causing serious problems.
Unfortunately, I think that's how people feel about their iPhones, their Android phones, their Kindle readers and so on and on. Microsoft could come out with products tomorrow that would be incrementally superior, but people won't switch for incremental superiority at this point.
