First of all, let me know you that Internet Explorer 11 has got the exclusive interface for Google Search results. If you’re using this latest iteration of Microsoft‘s propriety browser, you might have observed this already; so this is the old news.

What I saw, that the results looks like if they have shrink and they doesn’t utilizes the horizontal axis completely, have a look:
From the above screenshot it can be easily concluded that results aren’t as they are supposed to be.

I also tried to reset Internet Explorer settings, but no luck. Finally, I came around this solution and it worked perfectly for me:
