I use Chrome personally because IE got its act together so late in the game and now all of my settings and preferences are already tied into Google, but I can't bash IE10's performance. It's excellent. Much faster than Chrome and FireFox (latest versions) on my new high performance laptop.
As to Win8, I despise the Metro interface and wish it would go away, but all I had to do was install Classic Start Menu and avoid the top-right/bottom-right corners of the screen to forget that it's not Win7. Performance is great.
