Thee were lots of updates today on W7. One was an optional IE11. I usually do not go for beta options etc, but this looks OK . Unless anyone here says stop I propose to install it soon.

It's not beta it's the real deal and very good:-)

How do you find youtube in IE11 ? Any issues such as not responding ?

IE11 also causes many of the W7 gadgets to display incorrectly if using a desktop DPI setting of 125% as many do.

I gave-up using any version of Internet Explorer when it became clear that, in-spite of Microsoft's huge development resources, they cannot produce a browser that comes close to Opera, in my opinion.

There are security risks with W7 gadgets see MS security advisory

That's a bit old. Its dated

Have been using beta 11 for awhile and had the full update last week. I've had no problems all the way through with windows 7.

Just discovered that TomTom doesn't like IE11.

TomTom advised me to use Chrome for updating and not IE.

So far no problems with IE 11. My wife has just got a new car with Tom Tom and an SD card - there is one free update in 3 months. Could those that use it just quickly say how to update? Can one do it on a ad hoc basis or does one need an account etc? My wife is a bit PC averse, and I may have a few problems soon.
