Windows 7: IE11 Release Preview for Windows 7 Now Available

Sorry but I have to say....

I don't care what it is, someone is going to say it sucks. You could have a perfect product, and still, you'll find a few that'll tell you it sucks.

Now there's no way I'm saying IE11 is a perfect product, it's not even final yet. And no... there are no perfect products, especially software! My point is someone will complain just to complain.... especially true if it's a Microsoft product.

And sorry, but the "it broke everything when I installed it" is a bit hard to swallow. Even some of the most ardent doubters here can't really believe that one... I hope

And yes.... I know there are legitimate complaints out there, especially where this is a preview, but some of them are just pure laughable FUD.

As for me (an everyday regular user), so far no issues with IE11, even in it's preview stage.

My two cents

When first running Bing the search results on one incident(only one so far after 4yrs.) brought up a malware laced site(back in 2009) as the first site in the results themselves. Google known for adware sites and other things. And Yahoo very limited in results.

Answer.com better then Google and Yahoo combined but won't come up with the same number of results Bing will. Other then the one incident prior to the 2010 introduction to better security and web filtering I usually find what I am looking for on Bing without problem.

As for IE 11 itself beta testing has begun here since IE for some time now has been the secondary browser in use. So far 11 is holding up under the initial stress test of having several IE windows open without it stalling! This has been a factor since IE 8 while I still miss the separate search text window requiring the first on the Favorite bar being Bing.

When previously having IE 8, 9 just replaced now again by 11 preview, and briefly 10 while that was still in beta each version would tend to stop responding when multiple windows were open even following a clean install of Windows ruling out any registry errors. 10 seemed a bit lacking in the java runtine and other areas being beta then of course.

So far it has been responsive as you would expect any browser's fresh install and not running into any snags changing pages fast enough but not seemingly any faster then the WaterFox(64bit FireFox). I'm seeing average times.

I have no idea again where all of this statement is coming from,
No one on the thread has said anything bad about ie11 rtm except it would be better to wait for the final release,
So your coming out of left field with all of that above,
Cheers.

I made my opinions known. If you feel I'm coming out of left field that's your opinion.

Have a good a good day

Dudes! You MUST update your Flash to 11.8.800.175, like, right now! I noticed a STAGGERING improvement in loading ScroogleTube videos and basically a lot other Flash content across a variety of websites that embed ScroogleTube videos and more. It's practically INSTANT for me - I click the link, the page loads halfway and the video is already starting (halfway as in it doesn't even finish loading the thumbnails for other videos on the right hand side before the actual video I clicked on buffers and starts playing; there was always a few seconds of waiting before the latest Flash update for IE).

Still no joy with Yahoo Shine videos even with the 11.8 ... 175 version. User Agent string is the only temporary fix in my case.

Didn't know what "Yahoo Shine was but I just checked out a video there to see if IE11 would play it and I had no issue - Yahoo Shine - Women's Lifestyle | Healthy Living and Fashion Blogs And I hadn't even updated flash since installing IE11.

Perhaps your flash version is too old?

BTW this is the flash version I have - 11.8.800.168. Looks like I need to update mine.

Hi there
some issues with displaying local sites like 127.0.0.1:9000 -- I've posted the solution in the Browsers section - but if you get Site cannot be displayed type of messages just either uncheck the enhanced security button in the security settings or add the web site to the trusted sites.

for the odd site that doesn't display flash video properly or just displays a blank (usually black) screen try pressing F12 a from within the screen and enable compatibility mode -- you need to do that per application each time unfortunately.

note - SKY GO doesn't work on IE11 because of SILVERLIGHT -paradoxically it works in CHROME even on Windows 8.1 !!!

(SKY GO / NETFLIX etc all work OK on IE10 BTW -- even on W8).

Cheers

Upon arriving to the page there the video ran without issue. Didn't even need to open up the options>security tab allowing the try with only the defaults to prevail. I bounced around on YouTube a bit as well without any glitches seen.

Here's one track I ran into and clicked on out of the blue for a fast test and no hesitation. Tangerine Dream - Melrose - YouTube

What will happen sometimes is a bad connect to a particular page where just about any browser may stall. You go back a second time and all of a sudden it runs normal. Often the volume on a site or a dns server error creeps in.

See, the first time I ran IE11 after installing, Outlook.com wouldn't load and instead display a blank page, then go into "couldn't load this page"; but that only happened until I closed and reopened IE.

Also, is this the sky go you mentioned?

IE11 Release Preview for Windows 7 Now Available-sky.go.png

EDIT: I just figured out why opening the first instance of IE after system boot suddenly lags the browser like mad: Speckie isn't compatible with IE11 right now so I had to disable it; now IE loads immediately.
