Internet Explorer 10 Preview Available For Windows 7 Users

I wonder what is going on!!!
I should mention that I am test-driving this on a Win7 64-bit ,machine.
What I do like is how the fonts are rendered. I like the sharper edges to the tabs. In terms of speed, currently it appears to be fine. Installation was a smooth, but lengthy, affair. The new install transferred over the previous Add-ons/ Accelerators that my IE9 (which I always kept and used as a secondary browser - my primary browser is and will remain Chrome till the time I use Android tablets and phones) install had without a problem. I also like the fact that finally IE has an in-built spell check capability (which was, frankly speaking, long overdue). I also appreciate the fact that what I have installed now is a preview and there may be some bugs etc. which will eventually (I hope) get worked out (I have not found any yet - but its only been 20 minutes or so that I have downloaded and installed IE10.

If you explore a little further after enabling it you can download Easy Site List and Easy Privacy List, the same lists used for adblock plus.

It might be that I am using Windows 8, but I see the Flip Ahead checkbox right under Enable Automatic Crash Recovery.

Thanks. I checked in my install at the location you mentioned, but that option is not there. Perhaps it is only available on Win 8-based installs.
On another note, I found that some embedded videos - like on the Guardian UK site - don't load up and play. I checked the same page on Chrome and the video works fine. Other than that, I think - and this is only my perception - that IE10 is a bit sluggish as compared to Chrome.

What does that mean? Do you mean Internet Options, not Properties? Even so, though is no option to "enable flip ahead." Where can you do that in Windows 7?
