IE10 shows only a close button, the title "Message from webpage" and the [X] close window button. There's no checkbox, secondary text, or other buttons...
that said, IE10 is not set in stone; it can be live-patched at any time, and new features are expected to appear independent of version numbers.
my point isn't that jQuery is great, but that in this day and age, where browsers accelerate jQuery and the google CDN hosted copy is >80% 304s , it's not as objectionable as it was a few years ago.
