So somehow windows decided to upgrade IE to version 10 and reboot last night even though I was downloading a file and so it killed the file download. More importantly IE 10 is as slow as molasses and the interface changes are ugly. the "waiting for xxx" never happened with IE 9 or earlier. Blah.
yes, I do a lot of design work that's why I downloaded it on my Win7 laptop - to see if it picked up recent CSS3 styling on a particular website I just launched. NOT. I'm just so weary of having to spend hours troubleshooting IE "browsers"... and thought just maybe this release would be a winner (she said as Lucy snatched the football from C. Brown)
