who installed ie11 today or prior ?

Before I update my main computer to ie 11
I would like some feedback
Who installed it and what problems or not are you having with it
I installed it on one of my test computers and so far I found the problem with the gadgets so I am not sure if I want to put it on my business machine that now runs ie 9 or any of my clients machines

I ran the update to IE11 yesterday and have had no problems. But I don't use Gadgets. Those are a huge security hole.

What do you call a 'decent CPU reader' ?? I use the CPU Meter that comes with the desktop gadgets and it has always served me well.

Actually it is not bad- it is called All CPU Meter
I got it here Windows Desktop Gadgets - All CPU Meter Version 4.7.3
actually after installing ie 11it does keep the cpu meter it just takes out the graphic
the same with the weather gadget

whs it was the cpu reader from windows 7 gadgets but the one I just put on my test machine seems to be doing ok so far
On my main machine I put back the cpu reader/meter, it is just lacking the graphics, no biggy, as long as it works I really do not care if it pretty

you are correct, Microsoft discontinued the gadgets as you see here

Gadgets have been discontinued - Microsoft Windows

btw ie 11 is working great here on my main business machine running windows 7, seems to be a much faster browser and uses less cpu, so far anyway
only some sites still are not up to date for it- go figure with windows 8.1 out I would think they would
I went to the Comcast site and it told me my browser was not compatible- very weird because it does not tell me that on my windows 8.1 computers. as you see in the picture below- did that on both windows 7 machines I just put ie 11 on.
