So, today a popup popped up and said I should update Internet Explorer. It's not my computer, so I try to be careful not to do any harm for my kids and grandkids, so instead of going along with the link, I went to the Microsoft site and started checking things out. What we have now is IE 10, and a version 11 exists, so I looked into getting that; which seems to open a major can of worms. Microsoft offers free downloads of all kinds of stuff, but not IE11 for the infamous Windows 8 (anybody know if there is anything to the rumor that we cannot get rid of Windows 8 on our new computer because Windows 7 won't run on it?). Other sites (e.g., Find internet explorer 11 downloads at CNET) seem to have IE11, but it's a Mickeysoft product, so I wonder if I should trust the versions that I might find elsewhere if MS itself is not offering it.
