One of the most annoying things about the Metro version of Internet Explorer on a larger screen devices is the always hidden address / tab bar, which you constantly have to trigger with a swipe gesture. Now, it looks like Microsoft has realized how incredibly frustrating this can be and decided to include an option to keep the bar always visible.
In addition to that, the software giant claims that (thanks to various optimizations) users won’t see a hit on battery life even if you have 100 tabs open.
With Windows 8.1 being free and RTM build just around the corner, it will be interesting to see whether or not Microsoft decides to push the update (which includes IE11) in August or wait for the “official” launch in the fourth quarter this year.
