    Mildly annoying, I want to start test deploying it in a few locations (I see browser updates as no big deal nowadays)

    I agree and disagree with you there - if the likes of Policy Central works perfectly with IE11 I'd be very surprised. Also I find the likes of Flash and Adobe Reader can also be an issue when it comes to newer browsers. There's no mad rush, so I'd advise you leave it for a while

    As for installing IE11 at home - got for it. Microsoft 'forced' it on my home notebook the other day via Automatic Updates. The great thing so far (on the surface) is it looks like IE9 and IE10, so it shouldn't confuse users.

    So far other than the OWA problem in Exchange 2010, the only other site I've found has problems is the Guardian Crosswords. The "Save" button doesn't work unless you put the site into compatibility mode, which annoyed the missus no end last night.

    If it wasn't for OWA I'd merrily deploy it now.

    With Office 365 - login.microsoftonline.com the image looks warped, but after this Outlook works absolutely fine. I think Microsoft have released a patch for Exchange 2010 and 2013 to resolve this issue.

    Just for 2013 so far. I've been told several times over the last week (including by a Microsoft employee) that there is a patch for 2010, but there isn't, and there is no published timeframe for releasing one.

    Do you know if there will be a patch for Exchange 2007 SP3?

    Made chrome default about 6 months ago after I found out it works with group policies!

    Not a problem since

    All we know for certain is that there won't be a fix for 2003.

    There's actually been no announcement that there will be a fix for 2010, it's just an assumption that they will fix it at some point. 2007 and 2010 are still supported products, so it's reasonable to expect there will be a fix in the next cumulative update.

    I hope this turns out to be the case. Many thanks.

    What's the general feeling on Edugeek now about IE11 - we blocked IE10, is the recommendation to also block IE11 or is it going to be ok with proxies etc?

    Blocked on server as that killed proxy but 10 and 11 are fine for my schools on client computers. We also use Chrome as an alternative.

    I have an open call with the SWGfL regarding staff proxy not working correctly, IE 10 works fine.

    We're deploying IE 10 at the moment as that works but not IE 11.

    I always test new IE versions anyway before I deploy them to find the issues.

    I would highly recommend you test, test and test again. I've also checked every other day and Microsoft still haven't published IE11 to WSUS. This is a better way rather than using the blocking tool as you can easily reverse the policy once you wish to deploy IE11.
