There seem to be so many threads on here about various issues and nags with the Surface that I thought we needed a positive thread.
Having said that, I'm amazed at the performance of the Metro IE10 browser and when compared to my iPad the Surface blows it away.
Case in point, load up WP Central on it and see how fast it loads then compare to another tablet you have lying around. Heck, compare it to a laptop for that matter and see how close in speed it really is.
If you don't think it's all that fast, see post #28 here if you haven't already done so. You will be amazed at how much faster the browser is after doing this.
Anyway, have a good one!

IE10 is very good. Looking at it from a developer perspective it's up there with Chrome as the best browser on the market. As for Safari, it's bloody awful, Chrome, >IE9, FF and Opera are all much better than it, this isn't fan boy talk, this is from having to develop for it everyday.

yeah man here here. first thing i mention when showing people the surface is how fast internet browsing it. it has definitely replaced the laptop I left laying around the house for internet anywhere and even though it doesn't have a facebook app, that's no problem i just use the site which works really well.
