    Hello,

    in IE10 (while trying to download 2GB file from MEGA service) I got popup, that IE10 is incompatible with MEGA, so it can download only small files. Does anybody know, if is it fixed in IE11? I just destroyed my W8-1 VM with testing, so I can't test it...

    It's not really ie's problem. It's just mega that exploits the fact that other browsers don't store downloads-in-process in ram.

    on 64bit Windows, IE10/11 uses a 64-bit process for the 'frame' window, but 32-bit processes for the Tabs, so it can't hold more than 2G stuff in RAM.
    You can try to enable 'enhanced protection mode' in IE's Advanced Options, this will make IE11 to use 64-bit processes for the Tabs, that MIGHT help.
