During the CES, one of the audience members has asked Microsoft’s Dean Hachamovitch about the future of IE Mobile and whether they plan to bring new features, such as HTML5 anytime soon.
Although he wasn’t very eager to reveal any specific plans, Dean Hachamovitch said: …we will be talking more about our mobile browser very soon…
If rumors are to be believed, then the upcoming Windows Phone 7 update (codenamed Mango) will include HTML5 and Silverlight support.

Just few weeks after the initial release of Maxthon for Android, here comes the second build of Maxthon Mobile.
According to the official announcement, the following versions introduces two new features:
- Synchronization of cross-platform information
- New finger gestures
The synchronization feature allows users to manipulate data, such as contacts and favorites, from any Maxthon platform on PC or an Android phone. A user, for example, can use Maxthon on his PC to sort a collection of contacts by phone area code. When he opens the same contacts using Maxthon Mobile on his phone, the contacts will be in the same order as on the computer.
The new mobile browser is the result of a vibrant, ongoing dialogue between Maxthon developers and users, which is how Maxthon discovered that users wanted a touch screen “undo” gesture to reopen a tab they had closed inadvertently. The new gesture is a reverse “c,” the opposite of the gesture to close a tab.

Makes 2D UI look obsolete.
Here comes another IE Mobile based web browser for Windows Phone 7 platform.
However, this time it’s all about 3D. By using “cube design”, it allows users to switch between different sides of it and navigate in such fashion.
Furthermore, it supports landscape mode, orientation lock, private browsing mode, accelerometer and even got bandwidth saved.
Interested in? It can be yours for $1.99 and downloaded from Windows Marketplace.
