IE bug report

    Question

  • I have found a bug with downloading in IE metro app version. I was downloading a large file (Microsoft -dev preview /w developer tools) since I decided I wanted the developer tools as well. After switching away from the window and leaving it alone overnight, the download had stalled. Switching back to IE did not allow it to continue the download, and I had to abort the download. The normal version of IE seems to be handling the download fine though.

    Overall I'm liking the preview. The Metro style apps will take some getting used to and I do agree there should be a more friendly way of exiting a Metro App. Especially the game ones where the sound continues to play even after you switch away. But so-far, I think windows 8 will turn out nice.

    Anyone else have a similar problem?
