I have weekly images of my system, but I see threads constantly of people who wanted to go back and it didn't work, and they could not get the new version back, etc. I also see issues caused by 10 and 11. I don't need it, just wanted to check it out. Rarely use IE, so IE9 will work just fine

So I have my answer, you can't have 11 and 9 at the same time.

so with ie 11 on windows 7. will I be able use the new html5 on netflix? or is it only in windows 8.1

it has faster loading then silverlight.

it really seems like Microsoft is pushing everyone to 8.1 to use certain things.

yeah but microsoft made a deal with netflix that they can use html5 with drm protection in internetexplorer 11 with windows 8.1.

but it doesnt look like the option will be there for windows 7.

It will apply for the browser then, IE11 was originally intended with Windows 8.1, it will be released with Windows 8.1, however, has now been available for Windows 7.

I'm likely to wait until the final version is released.
I'm not crazy about the Developer tools pic Brink posted looks like a win-8 display/ touch screen friendly mess.
Right now I can have F12 open and it's barely there no more than the old Status bar and I can switch browser mode and Document mode without taking up the entire front page.
ie10 is fine and dandy and my only installed browser.

Some people think upgrading to a beta product will improve prior issues from another version,
Upgrading Never improves prior issues it just amplifies it,
Because now they have further complicated the upgrading process by putting the beta product in the way so when the final release is issued now you have a beta possible conflict,

The rest are just curious which in the end eats the cat
But it's no surprise to me personally that ie11 will be more touch screen friendly/ Larger icons.... which I'm not interested in.

Whatever it takes to justify your non use that's fine, but let's not act like there isn't any progress here because it is. That even in it's "preview" form it's functioning better than either IE9 or 10. It's certainly faster and snappier than 10.

That said, if it's clearly because it's a preview release, as some have noted, that's understandable. But for some of us trying it out, it's fairly impressive thus far.

It's easy to listen to the FUD, it's another thing to see for yourself


My two cents.

Reasons I don't bother with betas is because the final product is rarely the same and I'm content to wait until any bugs have been worked out. I'm not against progress or change but will adopt only when it actually benefits me.
