I have been trying to figure out for a long time is why did they bother even releasing IE11 for Windows 7 especially since it was made for Windows 8.1, I can't stand IE11 I have found at least 3 flaws in the time I was using it and 3 times was too many so I rolled my browser back to IE10 and its been working right

+1, no issues with IE11. By all means never use something you can't stand.

+2 on IE11, although I didn't upgrade to it until just last Friday. I always wait awhile before upgrading or updating anything. I wait around four days before updating M$'s monthly security updates to make sure there are no significant problems being reported. I wait at least a couple of months to upgrade to new versions of IE to give M$ time to iron out the worst of any problems although, in the case of IE11, I just kept forgetting about it. So far, I haven't noticed anything different from IE10 other than it might be a tiny bit snappier.

I don't like 11 because it messes up gadgets without Bongo's fix which limits them to 100% only DPI.

But the spell check saves enough time I want to find a comparable for Firefox. Anyone?

I don't use gadgets, per M$'s recommendation due to security issues.

Spel chek is nice.

I have never used Gadgets even on Vista as I think they are gimmicky.
I always use spell check & it has worked on Chrome, IE & Opera over the last 5 years.

Tens of millions of consumers use Win7 gadgets which is one of the most popular features. The IE team knows this but - as I experienced at Global MVP Summit when I asked them about it - doesn't care because they place little value on Win7 even though its MS's most successful product and wildly popular with the public. This is why it falls to us to be its advocates as well as support.

The two most popular features on my installs for friends, family and those I help around the world are the collection of 120 Win7 National Editions Backgrounds slideshow which are perhaps the most spectacular (and expensive) pictures ever taken, and gadgets. Both maximize the elegance of the OS reminding us that there has never been an OS so beautiful.

Not sure, since I don't use IE11 beyond it just being a part of Windows, so I'm not sure how the spell check works in it in particular. I just use the FF one. It underlines misspelled words in red and you can right-mouse click on them to bring up a list of suggested words to choose from. Works fairly well for me, fortunately, as I'm not that great of a speller.
