DEAR WIKIPEDIA READERS: To protect our independence, we’ll never run ads. We take no government funds. We survive on donations averaging about $15. Now is the time we ask. If everyone reading this right now gave $3, our fundraiser would be done within an hour. We’re a small non-profit with costs of a top 5 website: servers, staff and programs. Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park where we can all go to think and learn. If Wikipedia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free another year. Thank you.
If we all gave $3,
the fundraiser would
be over in an hour.
Internet Explorer 11
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Internet Explorer 11
Internet Explorer 11 running on Windows 7
17 October 2013; 2 months ago (2013-10-17)
Internet Explorer versions:
- IE11 has removed support for
- Quick Tabs (CTRL+Q)
- Work Offline command removed from File menu 
- Drag and drop of selected content from IE to other programs like Word or WordPad
- Use large icons for command buttons Group Policy setting no longer supported. 
- Ability to view all cookies at once via Developer Tools
In one review, IE11 scored better than Google Chrome 30 and Firefox 26 in 2 of 4 benchmarks (including WebKit‘s SunSpider test), tied for fastest in a 3rd benchmark, and was last in Google’s V8 performance benchmark. As a result of the speed improvements, the reviewer said “if you switched to Chrome for speed alone, you’re now using the wrong browser.”
As per MSDN, IE11 is the first browser to make Internet connections more secure and reliable by reducing the use of vulnerable ciphersuites, such as RC4 and by using the latest security standards, TLS 1.2, by default.
Though an internal build of IE11 was leaked on 25 March 2013, its first preview version was not formally released until June 2013, during the Build 2013 conference, along with the preview release of Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1. On 25 July 2013, Microsoft released the developer preview of Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
