Cant java be downloaded separate so that those that want to use it can, and for us that don't use just don't have to bother with it
Edge goes in and I don't now get thrown out.
So don't run away with that is all it is good for,
Have you tried it and disabled IE has I don't have it at all on my computer
No they simply tossed their beta flavor of Edge in on 10 to force everyone to try it out long before it was even scheduled to be ready. 10 is a workshop experience rather then the final RTM being pushed for a much larger beta testing audience presently simply to get more people upgrading to 10.
You will notice that there is a new Windows Insider build popping up every month since the 10240 was first seen at the end of July upto the 10565 at the moment. Once you have a final version out in the past the next build would then include a service pack as far as the dealer end's optical media went. But MS is now dropping optical media entirely in favor of downloads and flash drives.
Once you have everybody or as many as you can running the newer you can then proceed to dump support for the older what evers which include the older flavors of IE now relatively outdated! IE does need an updated replacement but not seen in any general release as the beta but the finished product. Why do you think there's that "Windows Feedback" option first seen in any supposed RTM? 10 isn't the final RTM! MS saw this release for feedback stating they wanted to... didn't quite yet... make 10 the best version ever. You have to read between the lines there!
I'll say it again. Abandoning support for current technologies just for "security reasons" is not the correct approach. Hackers will eventually find a way to hack our computers using the new technologies. That's why Antivirus and Firewall are for. Anyone connected to the internet without at least Antivirus (even a frequently updated Windows Defender will do) is asking for trouble! Not supporting ActiveX controls and Java to prevent hackers is only a temporary solution. It's a matter of time until hacker find a security hole in Edge as well. Besides not every single website supports new technologies, so common sense dictates that Edge should have a minimum backwards compatibility with present technologies if we are to use it for serious work, rather than just Facebook and YouTube.
Please don't make me repeat myself! Read my posts and think about it before saying once again that Edge is the new, IE is the old. New is not necessarily better!
IE11 will be around for some time to come.
IE 11 will be the last in the IE line-up there and still in use on 10 until 2020 at least when Edge and no longer IE is supported not only by MS but most sites adopting Edge standards. As for Java that invites more problems with then without and why it is phasing out since newer technologies can easily replace the old 3rd party addons! Java and Flash go to the wayside!
That's all I ask. Keep IE 11. I don't mind if support stops eventually, but keep it so we can use it until we can fully switch to Edge.
