Works okay so far , but have only visited a few websites with it, no probs so far... seems slightly snappier than IE9
I did run Futuremark's Peacekeeper browser benchmark on IE10 Preview and other browsers just now...
IE 10 Preview ( on W7 64-bit ) score: 1558
Google Chrome Version 23.0.1271.64 m score: 3099 !!
FireFox Version 17.0.1588 score: 1588
Maxthon Version 184.108.40.2060 score: 2790
I realize it is a synthetic benchmark so take with grain of salt. Confirms that Chrome is still faster overall, both in that benchmark and in my own subject experience...
While both IE9 and IE10 have sexy anti-aliased text and gorgeous colors/pics, it is still not the fastest overall browser.. it is decent, notice the latest FF score is nearly identical to IE 10 Preview score, but Chrome and Maxthon are very quick...
I tried to run that new Robohornet browser benchmark on IE 10 but it crashes, got stuck on one of the tests ( the 9th test iirc ), just hung there for 20 mins without going on to the next test... so obviously RoboHornet and IE10 don't get along so well right now so I gave up on the particular benchmark...
Short version is that IE10 seems a bit faster than IE9 but still not as fast overall as Google Chrome... at least that is my impression of it so far...http://www.itproportal.com/2012/07/30/i ... nchmarked/

Heading over to the desktop version of IE10, you'd be hard pressed to detect any difference from IE9. Of course, the underlying page-rendering engines are the same new, faster, more standards-supporting ones used by the Metro form of Internet Explorer 10. As we'll see on the next page, there are performance differences, too.
Web apps, too, need more than simple web page display in order to be fully functional, and IE10's much-improved HTML5 support allows them to do nearly anything an installed application can. Finally, for all this to happen in a way that will please users, it's got to be fast. IE10 is fast, but it wasn’t the leading browser on most of my tests. And I was surprised that the desktop version made a better showing than the new Metro version. Perhaps this is because Microsoft has had longer to optimise the desktop version, or the Metro version introduces another layer on top of the OS kernel. In any case, this is not the last word, and optimisations often come along late in the development cycle.
There's no doubt that IE10 is the fastest, most web-standard compliant, and leanly interfaced version of Internet Explorer we've ever seen. And while it doesn't lead competitors like Chrome and Firefox on some of these measures yet, it's still pre-release software. I like the direction this browser is moving in, and, when the final version of Windows 8 arrives, Internet Explorer 10 may well top the leaderboard.
Benchmarks, of course, don’t always offer an accurate representation of real-world performance — though Peacekeeper and RoboHornet were both built in an attempt to make automated browser tests more realistic. In actual use, however, IE10 is definitely quicker than IE9.
In short, it’s a great second effort from the new Microsoft — one that’s focused on standards compliance and competing with rival browsers for the performance crown rather than just letting its users schlep along on an outdated, proprietary app.
It was already easy to see that IE10 was Microsoft’s best browser yet on Windows 8, and now hundreds of millions of Windows 7 users can finally see how big an improvement it is, too.
Chrome still leads though overall.
