Internet Explorer 10


What's New in Windows Internet Explorer 10?

Fast and fluid

Built to take advantage of the full power of Windows 8 and Windows RT, Internet Explorer 10 starts and loads sites almost instantly. It brings a fluid responsiveness to the web that feels totally new. Everything you want to do on the web is a swipe, tap, or click away.

Perfect for touch

Truly full-screen browsing: Navigation controls appear only when you need them and quietly get out of the way when you don't. Internet Explorer 10 lets you flip ahead or back through your websites with the flick of a finger. Tiles and tabs for frequently visited sites are oversized for easy tapping.



Smooth, intuitive controls work just as you'd expect. One Box is both address and search bar for speedier navigation. Pin your favourite sites to your Start screen and get to them as quickly as you access your apps.


Safer and more private

Help keep your PC and your information safer on the web with the industry-leading SmartScreen technology that helps protect against socially-engineered malware. Privacy tools like Do Not Track are built-in and are easily enabled in just one click to give you increased control



Windows Phone 8


Start. The home screen, reimagined.

Other phones have home screens with a sea of icons. Only Windows Phone has a Start screen filled with vibrant Live Tiles that keep you caught up on your best friend's texts, the time of your next meeting, who's liked your post and even updates from apps. You can pin, unpin, rearrange and resize your Tiles as you like and change colours to suit your mood.


Games Hub

The Games Hub is your on-the-go arcade. It's also the place to dress up your avatar, message your Xbox friends and see how your scores and achievements measure up. Add the SmartGlass app to control your Xbox with your phone.


Music + Videos Hub

Listen to your tunes, watch videos, subscribe to podcasts and create Smart DJ playlists based on the music you love. Add an Xbox Music Pass to download or stream music from a global catalogue of 30 million songs. You can listen to your iTunes music on your Windows Phone too.


Office Hub

Start a Word doc or Excel spreadsheet on your computer, then sync it to SkyDrive as you head out the door. Then you can write or edit a bit more on your phone with Office Mobile – from the back of a taxi, a towel on the beach, wherever. SkyDrive makes it easy to share docs and edit them with another person too.



With SkyDrive, all your photos, videos and Office docs are always available on your Windows Phone. OneNote on your phone syncs to SkyDrive too, so your notes are always handy. And once SkyDrive is set up, you don't need to worry about losing your stuff, even if your phone goes missing. It's all automatically backed up.
