Internet Explorer 10 icon IE10 brings to the table several handy features, such as fast browsing speed, improved protection against phishing, retrieved tabs from last session and more

When it comes to choosing the weapon of choice for browsing the Internet, the opinions are quite divided and there is a good reason for that, because the major players are each better than the other in some respect. Looks, speed, ease of use, extensibility are some of the major aspects to be considered before making a decision.

For those who would like to skip countless benchmarks, reviews, comparative tests and simply start browsing the web, Microsoft equipped Windows with its proprietary application, the well-known Internet Explorer.

Notable changes adopted by IE10

If the previous versions struggled to keep up with web standards and many a time failed to deliver the best experience to their users, IE 10 is set to rectify that. From the get-go you will notice that the interface received little changes from the previous release.

Internet Explorer manages to perform better now, even with more tabs opened and this means that some code optimizations have been made under the hood for certain. Browsing speed is also ameliorated, like any benchmark will reveal.

Retrieved tabs and security improvements

An innovation that was surely awaited for by the entire IE fanbase is the ability to restore the tabs from the last session. However, saving and managing sessions, which can be done by most of the other competitors, is something that remains, for the time being, on the wishlist.

In terms of security, Internet Explorer 10 offers a noticeably improved protection against phishing, through the SmartScreen Filter. Another plus that is worth mentioning is the new feature that allows users to add sites to the 'Start Screen' through the 'Tools' menu.

Final thought

With most of the modifications and improvements made to ensure a smoother and faster navigation, IE 10 gains a lot in performance compared to its predecessor. Nonetheless, Internet Explorer still can't really keep up with competitors such as Chrome or Firefox and even Opera, which surpass Microsoft's browser, especially because their development is much more accelerated.
