Hi, I start with something nice: the IE 10 Desktop is quite good. But the IE 10 for Windows 8 GUI is a typical example what makes the new GUI so bad:
I work quite a lot with my favorites, sorted in folders. Also very nice the little arrow next to the folder that opens all containing pages. Sometimes I am not sure about the name any more, but I can "blindly" navigate with the mouse to the wished favorite.
And now the new GUI: 1st I have to make a gesture that the bar pops up. 2nd I have to click into it. THEN it shows the favorites. Alread took me some time to find this out :-( ! And now the disaster, what does it show: my favorites as a mile long list. You can't be serious!?! If I want the good old style or maintain them, I have to go to the desktop. Quite true for most of the apps. Then why can I not just stay there? I.e. why am I forced to go go over the Win8 GUI for everything? I read the idea is to use the tiles (also as favorites): they are nice and can show info. BUT you really have to rethink it: the info I get is very little/limited, but they take a lot of space. And they are getting thousands of tiles over time, I cannot organise them into folders.
I have been using Windows since forever, meanwhile I got an iPhone, an iPad and now a SONY Vaio DUO with Windows 8. And my resume is that there are some things I like about the new GUI, but also so many that makes Win8 / IE10 much worse to use. Best Regards, Thomas
