    On December 15th of 2011 Microsoft made a big change that largely goes unnoticed by the vast majority of users; updates to Internet Explorer began to happen automatically.

    Today, Microsoft continues to install the latest updates for Internet Explorer supported by the user’s operating system without getting in the way. With Internet Explorer 10 we also added a UI control to the “About Internet Explorer” window which gave the end-user easier control over this process.

    Understandably there are some situations in which auto-updates are not desired. For instance, enterprise customers may (and do) choose to opt-out of these updates due to a reliance upon older versions of Internet Explorer internally.

    Tasked with supporting legacy applications, while also supporting the advancing web, the Internet Explorer team developed Enterprise Mode for Internet Explorer 11. This feature is designed to grant the user all of the security and speed of a modern browser,…

    @Tobi,

    Internet Explorer 11 originally shipped on Windows 8.1, we then worked to extend support back to Windows 7, but that required some effort since big things happened between Windows 7 and 8 (the touch-revolution) that presented some challenges to extend a touch-enabled modern browser into an older ecosystem. Further work to extend support for IE 11 back to even earlier Operating Systems would prevent us from using that time/money/effort in making the browser itself more standards-compliant, and capable of handling the future web.

    Windows Vista currently has an estimated 2.8% of the market, while Windows 7 has over 50% alone. Windows 8/8.1 have a rapidly growing share as well. These numbers alone help convey the reasoning behind supporting Windows 8 and Windows 7 in recent builds of IE. Other Operating Systems are losing share, and many instances exist in environments that would prevent updates from landing anyway.

    We certainly want to make sure the situation is as best as it can be, which is why we pushed out updates to bring everybody current, as far as their Operating System is concerned. This was a successful effort, and we look forward to seeing more traffic find its way onto more modern versions of Windows, and newer builds of Internet Explorer.

    Internet Explorer has been receiving regular updates through "patch Tuesday" updates for some time now. A couple of days ago we published a response to the top request "Auto Update Older IE Versions" that shared more detail: https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-internet-explorer-platform/suggestions/6509607-auto-update-older-ie-versions.

    Abdullah, I am sorry you feel this way. Our team is presently working intently to remedy the big issues that we feel developers have with Internet Explorer, namely compatibility and application of standards. We continue to make great progress in both of these areas, but are always interested in where you (the community) feel we could improve. What specific issues make Internet Explorer "horrible"? We genuinely care, and are motivated to improve.

    Hello, ewolfman. I believe this is already supported via the Memory tool you alluded to. You can see a 1, 2, 3 step image here: https://twitter.com/f12devtools/status/530795301775241216. Or were you specifically looking for a way to find detached nodes via the DOM Explorer?
