    Internet Explorer 11 spotted as part of Windows Blue


    Information on Windows Blue, the next major version of Windows, has started to leak out of Redmond recently. The first round of screenshots revealed a major NT kernel change, but Win8china has now published a screenshot from a recent Windows Blue milestone build that shows Internet Explorer 11 is being prepared for the update. Microsoft previously built Internet Explorer 10 into Windows 8, and it looks like the company is preparing to do the same with IE11 in Windows Blue.

    Looks like they are jumping on the rapid upgrade cycle that others are using, with too many issues.

    This will be interesting to see how this develops.

    This is what happens when you try to combine a tablet and a desktop operating system into the same product. The tablet part is so immature that it can't wait three years for the traditional major update. This one is going to turn into a big cluster**** that is going to be both sad and amusing to watch.

    Interesting...Considering Windows XP shipped with IE6, Vista with IE7, 7 with IE8, 8 with IE10, Blue with IE11?
    And noticed that (almost) every major update to IE is being released with a new version of Windows, and MS is switching to per-year major upgrade of Windows, that means 2014=IE12?

    I won't pay for a new OS every year, OR for updates.
    Under any circumstances.
    Not going to happen, no way.
    Looks like I'll be 'doing an XP' with Win 7-Win 8 from now on.
    I've already rejected Office 2013 in favour of staying with office 2010.
    Wenda.

    OK...so I'm confused, with all these so called leaks about "Blue". From everything I've read, "Blue" is supposed to be the SP1 to windows 8. I've seen a few articles saying that that "Blue" is as SP1 and the next version of windows? How can this be the next version of Windows when 8 was just released to the public not to long ago? The article from Znet says that if "Blue" is on schedule that it will be out in late October of this year. If that is the case, then "Blue" is in fact the service pack. Hence I don't put to much stock in what all these articles have to say.

    Me too.

    I just don't see any value that the new version can give me.

    But you'll have to pay for it
