Removal of option to disable tabbed browsing killed IE 11 for a lot of people and Windows 8.1 along with it. I for one will stay away from it just so I can keep IE 10 and stay tab free. 
You really need to bring this option back. There is absolutely no good reason to remove it unless your intention is to drive away customers.

When are these "people" from Microsoft going to give us what we want rather than feeding us the Shyte that the "feel" like giving us???
in their "need" to make things simple the only thing they really did was
1.) piss off a lot of loyal customers
2.) make things way more difficult for the masses of people that they are trying to reach
3.) push more people to buy Apple crap or Ubuntu junk.

What we really need is for Microsucks to scrap everything they have made since windows 3.12 and make a seamless OS that uses generic drivers for hardware so that their OS doesn't crash every 5 mins. STOP trying to "Customize" every thing and get back to basics.
PC literally means PERSONAL COMPUTER, not PUBLIC COMPUTER which is what they turned it into, giving access to everyone's information with just a few clicks of the mouse.
so is the "Windows Defender" all they are is a backdoor for Microsoft to gather your information and sell it to whom ever will buy it!!! unless an experienced hacker gets ahold of you like they did to me, then your totally screwed. All because Microsucks decided to make everything about their OS easy to access and internet friendly rather THAN MAKE IT SO THAT WE CAN CUSTOMIZE OUR OWN SECRITY and stop all these trackers, fishers, and anyone that wants to store a "Cookie" on our comp to gain access to our PRIVATE information.
