    Would backup first of course. Have any of you tried it on x64 W7 SP1? I really only use Firefox. Thank you!

    You will miss the extensions but have fun. IE has improved a lot and if you don't need much else besides addblocker you should be fine.

    I've tried it. Definitely a worthwhile update from IE 10. It looks the same but much smoother and faster.

    I too use Firefox, but with very few extensions. Actually only two. I believe in keeping it simple, and that ethos would apply to whichever browser I use.

    I will certainly try IE11 when it's pushed for Windows 7.

    I'll probably give it a run for a few minutes, then go back to something else.

    using 8.1X64 here.

    much better than previous versions.

    but you can't install plugins in Enhanced Protection mode.
    or very few of them.
    Ghostery won't install under E.P. mode, otherwise i'd probably use it.

    One thing of note is, IE 11 isn't prone to frequent crashing when multiple tabs are open.
