You can use any other browser until the fix is released.

I do apologize for the delay, it can't be helped. ;/

Any news would be the release of the fix itself.

no new build == no news.

only IE11 is effected.

any other browser will work just fine until we can get an IE11 version out.

Obviously some will and we will ask them to use something else temporarily.

there's nothing else we can do at this time.

We are doing all we can.

Please be patient.

We have tons of work to do and very little resources.

I for one do as many sites require IE in order to work fully, I did use FF but several pages which require flash don't work using that browser so would either have to use IE or download flash player where if I try am then told that Win 8 has it built in, in a workaround & until a fix by AM I have downloaded Adblock plus for IE.

Most browsers require a download of flash... as I knew only chrome didn't require it as it downloaded it with every update where something change. IE, Firefox and most browsers Will ALWAYS require you to download flash manually...

My two Cents about "No one will use built in browser for 8.1 right?!?!?? Cool!"

Maybe I am the only one here,
Chrome is my standard browser for usage, yes, no Problem with Ad-Muncher.
I not use Metro in any way, and a lot of things are better (for me) in Chrome.

But sometimes I had strange problems in the past, if Chrome is my default system browser and because of this it's still the IE.
An update of Ad-Muncher is not very urgent for me, but open links in eMails or in my RSS Reader still open in IE and an update, sooner or later, would be realy nice. :)

+1 as another person who came here having updated to Windows 8.1 and finding IE11 no longer being filtered.

We are aware of the issue guys. We will get an IE11 compatible version out as soon as we can.

It's going to take as long as it takes. Can't go faster than that. ;p
