Finally, Microsoft has given a detailed overview of its latest web browser i.e. Internet Explorer 11. “The browser is no longer a commodity,” began Dean Hachamovitch, corporate vice president of Internet Explorer, speaking at a press-only event during Microsoft’s BUILD Developer Conference. “The browser is a way to differentiate the device and the operating system.” New changes will make this web browser faster and more use-friendly. In addition, new tweek has made internet an application.
Here are major announcements from Microsoft.

Specially Optimized Browser for Touch-Enabled Display
What makes Internet Explorer a hot cake is that it is optimized for touch-enabled displays. It has live tiles that you normally see in Windows phone and the start screen of Windows 8. Now the user can pin their favorite websites and start enjoying live updates. Developers are able to create live tiles by linking them to website’s RSS feed. Every website has a photo cover that can be customized by the users.
Side By Side Browsing
Now you can really fly through the pages with the mean of side by side browsing of web pages and application. You can swipe back and forth between the pages with a quick touch. IE 11 comes with improved touch support especially HTML5 drag-and-drop abilities and touch support for hover menus.
Cross Device Syncing
Interestingly, you can synchronize sync a user’s open tabs, browser history, favorite sites, and settings to Microsoft account through cross syncing feature of IE11.
CPU Fast Processing
Microsoft has made changes in the browser GPU for fast processing of different gestures such as panning, zooming and swiping. The main purpose of GPU offloading image decoding is to maintain the focus of GPU on processing and side by side preventing high use of battery fuel.
HTML5 Video support
Online video streaming is always liked and desired by users. Now IE will provide complete support to HTML5. During overview of IE 11 features, Microsoft opened Netflix from the browsing just to demonstrate video playing capabilities of browser.
WebGL support
I think it is one of the best features of Internet Explorer 11. As you know, Company took too much time in integrating this feature into IE. You definitely want to know why company takes so much time then you would get the answer from Hachamovitch “basically it all comes down to security.” He referred to a security exploit a while back for Mozilla’s Firefox browser for the Mac platform that was scanning any material that was open in the background on a user’s computer. “You essentially go to a site and [it] reads the material you have open on a Word document in another window,” explained Hachamovitch. “That’s a great example of the kind of security vulnerability we were worried about.”
For your information, WebGL brings Cross-Origin Request Support (CORS) for images. This technology will protect browser from malicious attacks.
Internet Explorer 11 Beta is now available to download from Microsoft Official blog posts. I think it is the right time to download this web browser and start enjoying these wonderful features.
