Internet Explorer 11 To Pre-Render Search Results On Bing

Internet Explorer 11 To Pre-Render Search Results On BingBetter late than never.

Following Google, it looks like Microsoft too has decided to speed up the overall browsing experience and pre-render web results on its own search engine.

Thanks to a newly introduced pre-render tag (which can be used by all web developers) on Internet Explorer 11, the first search result in Bing will be loaded in the background automatically. That just only makes sense, right? According to Microsoft, they designed this technology in a way so it does not waste or bandwidth or affect device’s battery life. We are not sure how they did it but it sounds like voodoo.

If you are wondering what effect money has on people, Microsoft said that during first 30 days of the IE10 beta they did not receive any bulletin class reports, compared to “several” security vulnerabilities reported in Internet Explorer 11.

Play Windows 95 Game "Hover" In Your Web Browser

As long as it supports WebGL.

Hover, a capture the flag game from the 90s era is coming back. Thanks to Dan Church (who approached IE Team), you’ll be able to relive your memories and have some casual fun. The goal is simple: capture more flags than your AI opponents. You may also collect various power ups that will help throughout the game.

Ironically, it won’t work on Internet Explorer 10 or lower, since it requires WebGL and Microsoft was too stubborn to include it in the previous versions of IE.

We are not sure how many more videos with the same message Microsoft can make but here’s the most recent one, in which the software giant asks you to rethink its relations with Internet Explorer and forget about all the horrible things it did in the past.

One thing Microsoft has shown again and again however is the fact that once they get ahead, they still stop innovating and start abusing you (horrible IE, ridiculous Xbox Live Gold prices for an ability to watch Netflix, etc). So let’s just say that we don’t want to rethink our relations.
