"Internet Explorer 11"

November 20, 2013  |  By Mike7244

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 8

Pros

So far there's nothing good I can find about it, except with Norton I was able to save all of my passwords.

Cons

Sucks, its the worst search engine that Microsoft has ever created. I never saw something that has so many flaws. When you do a search it constantly locks up and have to constantly use task manager to shut the tabs down. The live tile version is exactly the same way. Another problem on their home page when you click on the main article tile 90 percent of the time now it doesn't work or the page can't fill itself completely in. They need to fire the creator or whoever created 11 the worst on in their history. When I try to report a problem it's near impossible to let them know. USE CHROME OR FIREFOX. It's such a shame when these idiots tied it into their new search feature but it doesn't work. False advertisement on how great 8.1 is the greatest search ever, NOT.

""The Download location page is damaged." - Microsoft"

April 15, 2013  |  By easeltine

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

2013 - One can actually see images in IE 6 if you are going to use this Explorer in older MS operating Systems. In our current world IE4 to IE5.5 are now WORTHLESS! IE 6 is a functional Browser for the FAT32 or NT4/2000/XP Operating Systems by Microsoft.

Cons

2013 - IE6 is functional, IF you are some kind of masochist. This is REAL BLOATWARE, as is most MS products! If you use it for a little while it will c _ _ _ out on you.

Summary

If you are going to use some kind of multi-OS box, or just fiddle around with an older MS Operating Systems DO NOT use Explorer IE6. The other choices operate better than Explorer in the current Internet world. For example, Firefox 12, Opera 10.63, Netscape 9, and older Sea Monkey are more responsive and in my experience have better graphics than Explorer IE6. One cannot use Chrome w/ anything below Windows 2000 for NT, and also none of the FAT32 OS's.
MS Marketing understands that the only way one can spur sales on modern software is to make older software unusable. MS is a master at their art.

Pros

Everything is very fast, its even faster than google chrome. User interface is great, adress bar is awesome - everything is well organised
