    Considering how IE 11 has behaved on 8.1, I will avoid the upgrade for now .

    IE 11 has performed quite well for me on Win 8.1. Perhaps part of the blame can be put on web site developers that have not updated their web sites to work with the newest and most secure browsers.

    From what I read here, the issues I meant are not much about web sites displaying properly, but of IE running decently - meaning as fast as IE 10 in Windows 8, not crashing, not displaying blank pages, etc.

    Doing web development myself, I find the idea of updating a site for a new browser pretty ludicrous, to be honest. The web today is built around standards. If any browser came late to the standards party, that would be IE. That has improved with latest versions but, really, the time when Microsoft could make developers jump to adjust to any IE quirks, that time is long gone.

    Is there a listing somewhere that describes what is new in IE11 from IE10?

    IE 11 has been running fine for me in both Windows 8.1 and 7. Its just as fast, no crashing or blank pages. You tend to see just the failure cases here, not the successful ones. If you just read the Office and Windows 8 posts here you wouldn't run either of them.

    Hey Y'all,

    I just update my Win 7 HP system to IE 11. Now when I open IE (not my default browser) my home page (ighome) will not properly display the Fandango gadget and I get a message at the bottom from IE "Do you want to open or save XIC0XM3H (1.09 KB) from mobile.fandango.com?" with Open/Save/Cancel buttons. If I select Open and IE as the program it opens another window with the XML displayed. I just tried it on my Win 8.1 Pro system and it does the same thing. The entire home page works just fine in FF on both machines. Any Ides as to what the right response is to the query?

    Have you tried to use the Gear, Compatibility View settings and added the Fandago site?

    My IE 11 has been working quite well as well. It is as fast as any other version. There are still plenty of sites that have to be added to the compatibility list manually as they are not already in the MS lists.

    Medico,

    Thanks for the idea but it doesn't solve the problem. Note this is not a site but rather a gadget on the ighome site.

    Hello everyone. I'm running Windows 7 home premium and I am still using IE9 when I need it. I can't find any documentation if it's possible to install IE11 while still running IE9, or is it absolutely necessary to Install IE10 first, then continue to IE11?

    I think you can go directly to IE 11. Curiously while setting up a new computer with Windows 7, yesterday, through Windows Update, it jumped directly from IE 8 to IE 10, so I have actually experienced a similar situation (although the versions involved are different). Anyway, each IE version is self contained, so you can skip 10.
