    IE10 was inspired by iPad users


    Microsoft has been heavily promoting its touch-centric browser since the launch of Windows 8. Internet Explorer 10 features a "chrome-less" interface intended to remove browser distractions and keep the user focused on the content. It's also gesture enabled, enabling users to pan, zoom, and swipe between pages. To get the browser to this point, Microsoft had to discover what exactly consumers were looking for from a tablet browser. The answer lay with iPad users.

    For the most part, IE10 IS Chrome. Acts just like Chrome. But I still use Chrome more haha

    I love using IE 10 with a touchscreen. It really does make web browsing a lot nicer. The flip ahead feature is by far my favorite, just swipe the screen left or right to go back or forward versus hitting a piece of UI to do so.

    What ... like touching a piece of glass with your finger and moving it to one side or the other?

    Hahahaha! Ya guys mean, IE is a waste of time, that it is based on iPad software is a waste of time, that it is a direct ripoff of Chrome is a wasta time, or all of our comments are a wasta time? "p :nyah
