Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) is now available for Windows 7 users in 95 languages. Microsoft will start pushing IE11 via  Windows update in the coming weeks. Windows 7 users who are already using IE11 Developer and Release Previews version will start receiving the final version of IE11 from today. Windows 7 users can now enjoy the same level of improved performance, security, privacy, and reliability with IE11 that consumers enjoy on Windows 8.1.

IE11 on Windows 7 improves performance across the board with faster page loading, faster interactivity, and faster JavaScript performance, while reducing CPU usage and improving battery life on mobile PCs. You can experience IE11’s leading performance first hand with demos on the IE Test Drive site where you’ll find examples of hardware accelerated rendering, interactivity, touch, and real world site patterns. EtchMark is a new test drive demo that’s an entertaining HTML5 retro-drawing experience, one that also enables you measure your browser’s performance.

IE11 worked awesome for me in the Windows 8.1 preview, but the RTM version has been giving problems...a few updates have fixed some things, but I still remember having a better experience in the preview.

Good browser but IE always has a issue with some site's background. Chrome is always better.

For some weird reasons Chrome and Firefox can't detect my DPI setting. Only IE11 works perfectly.

Chrome doesn't respect Windows' DPI settings. Firefox should work though, but i'm not sure if that's only for Metro interface or if the Desktop version would work too. But yeah, IE11 scales pretty much flawlessly. It's IE's key advantage over other browsers right now, and it's important with all the higher resolution screens coming.

 

EDIT: I just noticed that Chrome is adding support for high DPI displays - you can enable it at chrome://flags/#high-dpi-support

This browser is horrible! At work we call it the new IE7.

The developer tools aren't that great as well.

Couldn't agree more, however ("Google Chrome is the most popular browser on WinMatrix"):
