Default Internet Explorer 11

Introducing IE11: The Best Way to Experience the Web on Modern Touch Devices

IE11 offers better touch performance, faster page load times, a continuous browsing experience across your Windows devices, and completely rebuilt F12 developer tools.
Basically, take IE10, and make it even better.

Oh, and by the way, it's confirmed that Windows 7 will run IE11, eventually. This would make Windows 7 to be able to run at least four versions of IE in its life at this point, a feat last matched by... Windows 95, Windows NT 4.0, and older.

Looks good. Never really been a fan of IE but with this I might make the switch. (used Chrome/ Firefox for years)

I think IE is yucky, I prefer better memorization and security over better touch and speed any day.

Seriously I have a long history of having trouble with IE and I see no reason to switch back.

Hmmm hearing that IE 11 is better than IE 10 will definitely convince me to download it as I really like IE 10. :3

I've been loving Internet Explorer 10 so much since I downloaded Windows 8. It's been holding me up much better than Chrome~ But to make it even better...? I might forget what Chrome is.

Developer preview for Windows 7 is out. You'll get a prompt somewhere at the left, after the page loads. It's more of a "demo viewer" than a browser, what with the lack of an address bar, but this is assurance that, yes, IE11 will make it to Windows 7.

You can actually use this Developer Preview as an actual browser, but be warned: It replaces your current IE version. It's also preview software. Expect certain things to behave strangely.
