Internet Explorer 11 is the latest version of Microsoft's default browser. It provides all standard features that you'd want in a Web browser, while giving excellent integration with other Microsoft programs; but you won't find the same customization options here as you'd see in other Web browsers.
Fast loading: Web sites, videos, and images loaded at a comparable speed to any other Web browser on the market. This is a great improvement from the previous versions of Internet Explorer.
Detailed support: Internet Explorer 11 comes with detailed tutorials, forums, FAQ pages, and direct support. The support offered is much more informative than many other FAQs we've seen, presenting help in topics like "Tips & tricks" and "Add-ons."
Instability: We recorded several occurrences of Internet Explorer 11 crashing. Often, this only resulted in the program closing and restarting. On one occurrence, we were on a reputable Web site, but IE 11 still crashed, resulting in a total restart of the computer.
Iffy compatibility: Internet Explorer 11 easily navigates to and from Web sites, but at times, certain Web sites do not load properly. This was supposed to be fixed with IE 11, but it appears that these problems are still effecting the browser.
Internet Explorer 11 is the standard browser that most individuals are familiar with. It is great for those that want only a basic online experience. Other programs, like Google Chrome, offer more personalized displays and features, and Microsoft should add these options to improve IE 11. The constant instability is also a nuisance, and this is why we suggest downloading other Web browsers that are more reliable.
Internet Explorer 11 is compatible with existing sites, which just run faster and look better in IE. In IE11 we have also added a number of APIs to enable new experiences, and we have changed or removed APIs to ensure that more sites work today and in the future.
