    No new feature?

    No fix of REAL issues with the browser? Like those thick black lines in github commit and issue/comment-thread page.

    No shortcut fix? like press and hold ctrl and click browser back and forward should open the previous and forward tab in new window..

    No performance gain?

    No WebRTC?

    No WebGL's 100% support?

    Besides the regular security patches, please do an exclusive blog for Tuesday updates to make discoverability of YOUR team's hard work easy!

    back and forward should open the previous and forward page in new tab*

  3. WhatStandards says:

    Where are the better WebGL support, 3D CSS Transforms and the WebAudio API??

  4. Vítor Antão says:

    Thank you for the Ctrl+0 = 100% fix.

  5. KB Says says:

    KB says: "one publicly disclosed and thirty-six privately reported vulnerabilities"

    thank you

    Just last month, Microsoft shipped improved WebGL conformance in IE 11, bringing their overall support level from 90% to 97% — let me say that that again with emphasis: NINETY SEVEN PERCENT — and people are still complaining that they haven't shipped "better WebGL support"?

    Further, picking on IE11 is a bit silly — everyone is still working on 100% support.   The current Khronos test suite still crashes IE11.0.11 and Firefox 32 altogether and it crashes Chrome 37's WebGL engine (though the browser session keeps running).

  8. @Vítor Antão says:

    If that 0 is pressed on QWERTY keyboard, only then it works. If you press 0 on numpad, it doesn't! This issue is there before IE7! See connect.microsoft.com/…/one-missing-and-another-poorly-implemented-shortcut

    All browsers of the world did it right except for IE. They are too busy to fix their own old crap. Whoever is responsible for usability/UX of IE should be fired. Bring in people who actually love IE brand not the a$$holes who are doing everything to make Chrome good on every fuckn account!!!!

  9. Curious says:

    In case machine did not receive previous August update for IE and/or related (KB2991509): Does this update introduce "Modal Dialog Performance Fix" or do you still need to deploy it separately?

  10. Yannick says:

    I don't get some people here, any browser has yet to archieve 100% WebGL support and people are already complaining about IE11, which Improved support in both IE11.0.7 and 11.0.11. For goodness sacke, this is a patch, why do people expect feature updates? Be happy that the IE team doesn't put everything in IE12 and already pushed 2 minor updates to IE11 for improvements.

    @Thomas

    What do you not understand about focus on security updates

  12. Roger says:

    Can anyone comment on what patch(s) are needed in order to get Enterprise mode to work with IE11 on WIN7?  I have a need to test this and want to deploy IE along with the required patch(s0 to expedite its use.  Thanks in advance.

  13. Roger Truss says:

    I am Roger, forgot to sign in for my last post.

  14. Roger Truss says:

    Well, looks like I will just deploy all the IE11 WIN7 based patches with my install via cm12.  There are not that many so..

  15. Ron says:

    IE 11 fails to print many web pages having a left side navigation list.  The navigation list is printed over the body of the web page.

  16. @Ron says:

    Give us your 'many' examples please.

    Its understood. All I am saying; with the emerging web, IE team should promote their features update in a similar fashion. They are so consistent about security articles/blogs for ages which play very well to impress enterprise customer. But for a web developer, it's all about conformance and feature implementation. For average user, its UX which appeals them, in which IE is bit rusty; especially the tab-browsing and shortcuts..

    I want IE to perfect in all dimensions as much as the next guy and yourself. Promoting their work — under the hood changes — via blog articles and twitter is the way to do it. Or perhaps IE team should visit stackoverflow.com once a while and see what challenges the community is facing..

    After all it is ever-evolving web where even enough is not enough.

  18. RichardDeeming says:

    Still no fix for the F12 emulation tools? The drop-down lists are still empty unless IE is elevated.

    This issue was closed as "fixed" at the end of July. How long are we going to have to wait for the fix to be available?
