A preview of the final build of Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 has been released by Microsoft, bringing "30 per cent more speed" than any of its rival browsers when run on the OS, according to Redmond. 

Microsoft said the new release of IE11 contains re-designed developer tools. IE11's JavaScript engine, Chakra, is "nine per cent faster" than IE 10 and 30 per cent faster than "the nearest competition" - Chrome version 29 - on WebKit SunSpider benchmarks, it said.

The biggest change, though, is for the developers, who gain a redesigned and enhanced suite of in-browser F12 tools.

Among the changes: the IE11 Console makes it easier to debug WebGL content and map it to JavaScript; there's an improved file picker in the debugger; DOM Explorer will allow devs to tune live websites; and new tools will make it easier to find the source of memory leaks.

Well, I've been using it since I posted ..and have to say I am happy/impressed with IE11. It should be released soon..there was even a Windows Update for it.

Still not going to get me to give up Firefox. I've finally moved to broadband, but it's data limited, and all those Kb of data saved from blocking flash ads and advertising links adds up.

I use Firefox as well for different things. Don't let the ad block thing be the reason your negative about anything Microsoft..there are programs for IE that do the same as Firefox plug-ins. Here's one..

I know there are things for IE that do the same things as for Firefox, but IE doesn't offer anything new and innovative which will increase my productivity or enhance my user experience, and does not offer any additional security or stability, so why change?

Plus I don't care for the UI. I still highly favor the "old" style no nonsense straightforward interface of Firefox which was abandoned by Microsoft after IE6.

About the only thing I don't like about Firefox is how they're removing options "for our own good" because they think we are all completely tech illiterate.
