    Internet Explorer 11 on Microsoft 10

    A previous questioner raised this query. The answer posted enabled me to confirm I have Internet Explorer 11 installed but I can't find it. Where do I find Internet Explorer 11 on my Microsoft 10 system? Thanks.

    Yes, this update is breaking the State of Texas TER web site for Death Certificates. It has something to do with the security update for Internet Explorer.

    It's about time.. MS needs a fresh and new browser and IE was just not cutting it anymore, IMO.

    Years ago IE was a bit crappy, but I can't see what's wrong with it now. I use Safari, Chrome, Firefox and IE and I really can't find a problem with IE.

    Well, there are websites that don't work with IE and the developers are not going to do any work to fix the issues. I took a class that IE would not work with the coding/grading too.

    I am *Confused, how can they remove I.E. if IE is a part of the Operating systems Microsoft said it can't be done? I know a lot of software depends on I.E. being installed. Including some virus protection programs. I wonder how that going to work.

    Do you really think that MS can't work that out?? Seriously??

    From my understanding MS said that the user could/shouldn't remove IE from their systems and not that they couldn't. *Wink

    Did you read the case against Microsoft in Europe? I did. Microsoft told that removing IE would make the system unusable and said it was impossible to remove because it is now a part of the operating system. It was not just one article that said that, many articles said that. I wonder what European & U.S. regulators would say now.

    You're silly if you seriously think that MS doesn't know how to replace IE with something else to do the same thing. The thing MS said was that users shouldn't try to remove IE.. it never said or implied that they couldn't do that.. see the difference??

    And you're confusing what happened with the court cases and what MS can do to replace IE. Really, if MS did drop IE and replaced it with Spartan is there any difference?? Not really.. it's the same situation and just a different browser.

    Sorry, but your ranting is a bit silly at times. *Wink

    I don't think it's a bad idea re-branding Internet Explorer TBH.

    I honestly don't care what browsers people use to browse the internet with, as it makes absolutely no difference to me. However I must admit it does get annoying hearing the same nonsense being rehashed about Internet Explorer all the time, as if it's still 2001 and everyone is using IE 6. Well, George W. Bush isn't the President of America, Jurassic Park 3 isn't raking it in at the Box Office and the iPod Music Player isn't the new 'in thing'. The same goes for talk about vulnerabilities, Chrome or Firefox are no less immune to vulnerabilities than Internet Explorer, they have vulnerabilities too, so I would love to know what these people are using to browse the internet with if they're immune from vulnerabilities? Some plain text browser akin to Notepad? Do they change browsers every single time a vulnerability is discovered? I'm genuinely curious...

    Don't get me wrong, people bashing IE for a particular reason I'm all for, because that'll lead to changes, which will then lead to a better browser, and I do it myself. However the meaningless 'IE sux' stuff grates on you after a while. So hopefully by renaming IE it'll force people to back up their words with something more meaningful than pretending to be '1337' by rehashing comments that have been doing the rounds for nearly a decade and a half.
