    You should update to IE10 if you are still using IE9, there's not too much of a noticeable difference.
    I'm using IE10 in Windows 8 at the moment and I'm in no rush to upgrade it to 11.
    Personally I think it's a bit buggy and over the top security wise at the moment.


    Example:
    1 For a while when I was downloading something in IE11, I would get a "_" before the exe, instead of a "." it was a bit irritating.
    2 I felt some of the security settings like smart screen filter was a bit over the top too.

    It's not that bad though, one can work around it, but for me, like I said, it was a bit irritating.

    I second Clint's opinion. I am still with IE 10 on Windows 7 and I have hidden the update to upgrade to IE 11. Seems it wasn't quite ready to see the light of day, IMO.

    Phil,

    IE 10 would be a viable update for Win 7. Especially in Win 7, IE 11 may not yet be a good choice. In fact, even in Win 8.1, IE 11 can be finicky. I believe that ultimately it will be my browser of choice (I prefer IE over FF or Chrome), but for now I'm using both IE 11 and FF 25.0.1 for my browsing.

    IE11 didn't play well with my on-line banking site. Reverted to IE10 and all is well,

    I wouldn't say there are specific dangers, as long as Microsoft keeps updating it, which I don't know how long they'll keep doing it.

    I think it's safe to move to IE 10, it's pretty stable, it's more standards compliant than 9, so I would probably give it a try.

    Phil, when I was running Windows 7 32-bit (a few months ago), I upgraded from IE9 to IE10. I immediately started having problems when I browsed. (It's been a while, so I don't recall exactly what the problems were.)

    I then uninstalled IE10, which brought me back to IE9. The problems stopped after I did that.

    It was easy to go from 10 back to 9, so it wouldn't hurt if you tried 10; you can easily go back to 9 if there are issues.

    I can't speak about IE11, because I've never used it.

    My point exactly. Why mess with something that is working well unless you are really exposing yourself to dangers. Unfortunately i dont know what standards compliant means.

    It means that some sites will behave better or look better with a browser that understand and implement the standards on web technologies, like HTML and CSS, which are the technologies web pages are built with.

    As I said before, the problem with 9 is that it may not be supported for that long. 9 is available only for Vista, and 7. Vista, I believe, is nearing its support cycle and once that ends, probably there will be no more patching. IE 10 is a faster, better browser, overall.

    Phil,

    From my perspective, it is very easy to try IE 10 to see how it works for you. Every system is different. What works for one may not work for the next. Here's what I would do:

    Create a new Image.

    Download and install IE 10 separately from WU.

    See if it works for you by using it for a while.

    If it does great, if not open CP Programs and Features. Click the link on the left View Installed Updates. Select IE 10 and uninstall. IE 9 will be re-enabled.

    OR

    Restore your Image.

    By using this method you can safely try this later IE version to see if it's right for you.

    Phil,

    The link I supplied gives you the opportunity to download IE as an executable that you can save to your PC to run as you wish. WU (Windows Update) installs the selected updates immediately. Many prefer to install this larger updates by downloading the .exe rather than working through WU. YMMV.
