Internet Explorer So, have you installed Internet Explorer 9 yet on your Windows machine? No? Well, feel assured in the knowledge that at MIX11 today, Microsoft announced Internet Explorer 10, while also pushing out the very first preview release. Also, IE10 (can I call it IEX? Can I? Can I?) was demonstrated running on Windows for ARM.

Useless eye candy is called "polish" ... Seriously my smartphone can render most sites pretty quickly ... if you have a desktop/laptop is struggling ... maybe it is time for a new one.

It has nothing to do with whether the hardware can render it or not. It reduces the battery life for useless crap that doesn't gain me anything and takes up more memory doing so as well as mostly making the UI look very ugly. I want my smartphone to have as long battery life as possible and this "polish" works against that concept.

Well on my laptop the battery life increased once I moved to Windows 7 which has HW acceleration ... probably because the CPU isn't doing everything.
