What is the best IE version for Win 7 (x64) (SP 1)?

I have Windows 7 x64. I just had to do a total system recovery and am starting from scratch. I used to have IE 11 as my browser, but when I look for the download online I am getting a lot of info about the incompatability of the two.

The best version is the one that works with the websites that you visit. Try IE11 first and see how it works for you. Also test surfing to the web-based interface for your modem/router. Some network equipment does not like IE10 or IE11.

You should install IE versions via Windows Update.

I happen to use IE11 without Flash installed. If I need to see Flash content, I open Chrome.

It is best to have at least two browsers - in case one gets so messed up that it cannot surf. You can use the second browser to search for the solution.

Absolutely! Not only to search for a solution, but to see how a particular web site behaves with a different set of code.

As UsernameIssues says, use the browser that works well with the pages that you visit. I stayed with version 9 but with the disadvantage that in some pages looks bad content or other soon stop giving support.

Hi,
I personally believe ie10 rules
11 bites
I also use Pale Moon but it's tough to get used too I have to admit
End of this year ie10 will not see anymore security patches though

I doubt I will use it anymore I hate ie11 and it's nasty Edge mode
