Meet the Internet Explorer.
As previously reported, Microsoft has given us a small sneak peak at the upcoming Xbox web browser, which not only utilizes Kinect, but also a new technology called SmartGlass.
So what is SmartGlass? A nightmare for the WiiU and a game changer for the software giant.
Advertising agencies moan.
In an effort to protect its users and their privacy, the upcoming Internet Explorer 10 will be the very first web browser to have a “Do Not Track” feature enabled by default. Although it’s certainly a very welcome change, some of the advertising agencies have already expressed their dissatisfaction on this matter.

Just slightly more than a week ago, Mozilla and Google have accused Microsoft of using unfair practices to block competitive browsers on their Windows 8 RT platform, now, it looks like things did not get unnoticed.
Recently, the US Senate Judiciary Committee has announced that they will investigate allegations of the anti-competitive behavior by Microsoft. In addition to that, the European Commission will be joining the party as well.
Windows 9, Windows Phone 9 included.

According to Insideris, with the help of Kinect (probably Kinect 2 by the time it’s released) or a fingerprint reader, Microsoft will assign a unique ID for your finger (or face), which will be used as follows:
Makes link sharing easier.
In the recently published IE10 blog post, Microsoft has talked about the new Windows 8 and browser capabilities that allow users to quickly share their favorite web sites.
All you have to do is swipe from the edge, select preferred service and that’s pretty much it.
Every little bit helps.
If you are wondering whether or not the Internet Explorer division is still working on a new web standards support after the Consumer Preview of Windows 8, then we have some good news for you: they are.
