Most the good feedback is here and I believe there's another thread in News as well,
IE11 for Windows 7 Globally Available

But yes I usually wait until the windows update system unleashes it

You could install open hardware monitor and it will let you put a cpu temp gadget on the desktop.

What other things do you want the cpu gadget to display ?


Open Hardware Monitor - Core temp, fan speed and voltages in a free software gadget

That`s odd, now Internet Explorer 11 does not show up when I run windows update, and I haven`t hidden it yet, strange

But you can always get it here.

Not that I want it yet, I use Chromium and only use IE10 when a page won`t open correctly/fully in Chromium.

For example, the Overclock leaderboard chart does not showup/openup with Chromium.

I installed IE11 yesterday and it cured my problems with Windows Live Mail reading messages from Yahoo!.

I'll continue using Firefox as my primary browser though.

Download Internet Explorer 11 - Microsoft Windows

Not that I want it yet, I use Chromium and only use IE10 when a page won`t open correctly/fully in Chromium.

For example, the Overclock leaderboard chart does not showup/openup with Chromium.
I downloaded it through a banner on the top of msn.com's default homepage, just about like I got ie10,
Not optimized of course with Bing and msn
But yes went without a hitch,
The worldwide language link was on the News section story Brink offered but the download sat there like a dead duck ? missing a windows update I suppose ?
Found a small dpi conflict with scrolling with the mouse wheel so I lower dpi to 125% instead of 130% and all is well in the universe,
Cheers.

I agree ie11 is pretty good but I'm not seeing any increases in performance with loading...

It does seem dpi sensitive with the gadgets issue your referring to,
Some people have said it breaks them if the dpi is over 100%,
Which might point to a video card driver not quite compatible or needs to be updated,
I also noticed ie11 works better with hardware rendering instead of software rendering,
Some people have also said "Enhanced protection mode" was activated after upgrading to ie11,
This was not true on my end,
Cheers.
