Internet Explorer 11 Release Preview Now Available for Windows 7 Customers

Today, we’re excited to announce that Internet Explorer 11 Release Preview is now available for our customers using Windows 7! Building on IE10, Internet Explorer 11 is faster and advances the web platform on the hundreds of millions of devices running Windows 7, bringing standards like WebGL coupled with industry leading JavaScript performance.

In July, we released the IE11 Developer Preview for Windows 7. With that release, we brought IE11 to Windows 7 and encouraged developers to download the browser and test their sites. Today, we invite a broader audience of tech enthusiasts and consumers to download and experience IE11 for Windows 7. This release also signals the final preview release before general availability of IE11 for Windows 7 later this fall. IE11 for Windows 8.1 will coincide with Windows 8.1 GA (starting at 12:00am, October 18, in NZ) - making IE11 available to more than 50%of all desktops worldwide.

We had an employee download this version to their computer. There are some changes in the browser that caused issues with his work. I didn't know he had this installed until I checked his IE version.
I added it to replicate the problem and figure out a solution to the issue.
It seems the compatibility view is now different and there is no way to cut it off. For me to get his computer to login and send emails using salesforce the website now has to be added in the box.
Also logging into Google mail will not work with google added or not it strips the css and won't display the mail. I wonder if this is by design or just poor judgment on MS part. I will now probably use chrome as my default browser because I can't access gmail.

https://support.google.com/mail/answer/181472?hl=en This no longer applies in 11.

Trying to access my Google account now I get this error.
You are using an old browser version which Account settings no longer supports. Some features may not work correctly. Please upgrade to a modern browser, such as Google Chrome. This is with Google added. I take Google out of compatibility view and can access the account interface but mail will not work.

In adwords it will be an issue as well. I get this notice when I access adwords in 11
We have detected that you are using an older web browser. For better performance with the AdWords interface, we recommend using a modern browser such as Firefox 4 or later, Chrome, Safari 4 or later, or Internet Explorer 9 or later. Learn more
Looks like if this isn't corrected more shares of IE users will be moving away from MS browser.
