Try WIN+right or left arrow for snap.

Not the same thing. I prefer the convenience of using the mouse.

Everything works as before. All I'm seeing and using is a very fast and responsive browser. It seems to be as fast at fetching and rendering as Chrome but it's quite a bit smoother at scrolling. I'm using it...that should say enough.

LF

Having played with it a bit more, the browser interface using the pinned sites icons have all the functionality as that from the normal IE icon.

SJ, let me ask you a question - is that IE10 actually the new IE10 as the one you start from the tile in the Win8 start menu or is it the IE10 version with the looks like the IE9.

I'm using W7 so don't know what the W8 version looks like but it is essentially IE9 here. :

Yeah, that's the 'traditional' version. The new version has a few really nifty features, but it also has some serious drawbacks - e.g. no Favorites in the traditional sense. If you are interested, I had made a video about the two IE versions in Windows 8. That was made in the early days of the Win8 CP but is still valid.
