IE11 -- buggy as hell?

IE11 -- buggy as hell?

IE11 -- buggy as hell?

(OP)
I have IE11 on two computers and it doesn't work very well on either. Is anyone else encountering trouble with it and is it because websites aren't compliant with it yet or is it just a poor product?

RE: IE11 -- buggy as hell?

Define "doesn't work very well". That means absolutely NOTHING if you think about it. Give us a specific problem or issue you are having.

Also, install Firefox or Chrome and compare results. Router/internet connections are not immune to weird problems. Neither are computers. You can't just blame the browser.

I have it installed at work and at home and neither perform well. I've noticed it's sluggish, encounters problems with sites that require it to close and recover, and often complains about scripts running too long. I've used Firefox without any of the problems.

Which is why I NEVER open IE unless I'm on someone's PC that doesn't have it.

I suppose I'm not knowledgeable enough to really comment since I don't use it!!!

Just for fun, run ADWCleaner on both your computers and then run Junk Removal Tool as well. Test.
You can also run a Microsoft FixIt to scope any general IE problems. Test.
Last hope is to reset IE to defaults. If that doesn't fix IE, give it up.

Get ADWCleaner and JRT from BleepingComputer links.

In addition, look at your IE Add-ons, or run IE in No Add-Ons mode

RE: IE11 -- buggy as hell?

That Microsoft Fixit WILL look for bad add-ons and disable them.

Been using it for a long time, never an issue, no more or less than any other browser that is. They all have quirks.

I would say turn off ActiveX filtering though, that seems too mess up some sites.

Part of the issue is lousy web coders that see "Oh it's i.e." and slap all the workarounds for ie6
