Has anyone used IE11 yet on windows 7 and if so is it any good.
Im asking as IE11 is now showing up as a windows updade on my winows 7 desktop PC.
Also whats the changes to IE11 from IE10.
I have been using IE10 for 4 or 5 months now.
I usally wait until a new verson of IE has been out a good few months before I upgrade to it.

I downloaded it earlier. It seems to be faster than IE10, but as always not quite as quick as Chrome and Firefox when it comes to page rendering. Visually, it seems to be exactly the same as IE10. Overall there's nothing particularly impressive that I noticed.

The version I got says "enhanced for MSN and Bing" even though it just showed up as regular IE11 in Windows Update.

appears to be a very small number of catch up (with other browsers) features, rest bugfix & hidden tweaks! ... so about as much change as a chrome update really!

It is notably more unstable than IE10. I regularly see "unexpected closing" and "not responding" messages. This is even without add-ons.

Just come here to ask the same - was worried it might have a metro interface or something equally horrible.

I'll give it a week or so till people have found the major bugs in it.

Still hanging on with IE9 because I thought IE10 was questionable having tried it and was not happy with bugs so I rolled back to IE9.

For FM who have downloaded IE11 is the ability to rollback still available?

Under Control Panel Programmes and then Turn Windows Features On/Off there is still a box next to IE , currently IE11 that you can un-tick, I assume it will then on restart roll back to your previous version.

I had kept 9 as 10 was dodgy. I will try 11 for a while and see what happens.

I will not get IE11 just yet I think. I will wait till its been out a few weeks to see what reviews it gets.

This is probably not going to be a very helpful post

IE 1 was only supported for computers running Windows 95 and up to NT 4.0. You might be able to get it to run in Windows 7 under some compatibility mode, or more likely a virtual machine running a copy of Windows 95 or NT 4.0. The main problem is that hardly any website will work on it as IE1 does not support most of the web standards expected today.

As a website creator i implore you, if you really have to use IE (all other browsers are still far superior), then please always update to the latest version. MS are just now starting to catch up with other browsers in terms of support of the latest web technologies so if you don't upgrade then you are doing your part to hold back the entire world wide web!

Just seen that IE11 is a bit iffy with DS, you can search from the main search page but if you try doing a search from the search box at the top of the page it just takes you to the main search page and doesn't open the little box any more or try a search this thread it doesn't work at all, and no compatibility button.

Perhaps if people trusted software such as IE more and Microsoft in general then they might do that but we have all been burned by their bug ridden updates so often that most tend to wait , and don't get me on to the awful Windows 8, I stuck with Windows 7 Ultimate and am very happy.

IE 11 is getting hidden just like IE 10 is on all customer deployments for me.

For business applications, many websites haven't even been updated to cope with how IE 10 works, I dread to think how they would cope with IE 11.

For facebook and twitter use, it probably won't make any difference, but why not just use a better browser anyway.

If you don't trust MS then why are you using IE in the first place! Get yourself some Chrome or FF!

I said if people trusted them more, since the start Microsoft has been littered with problems which is why most people wait to upgrade whilst latest releases have their problems ironed out , to me that's sensible.
