  • Good, you find a bug in the web sites, now you can just let web developers of those sites know that their error message needs to be updated to show something like "Please use a stable version of Windows" for IE10/Windows 8 visitors.

  • IE10 is not published yet, compatibility issues like this is expected. The web designers may not want to target an IE version that is not stable.
