Internet Explorer, the browser you all once loved to hate, has grown stronger over the last few years. After ignoring its web-browser for a long time, the software giant not only added many enticing features into it, but also made the browser much more secure and stable. Today, Microsoft has launched a website RethinkIE which documents all its recent developments and accomplishments.
The latest version of IE, Internet Explorer 11, sports some unique and intuitive features that make it stand tall against its competitors. The browser supports 3D graphics rending as well as a touch-first experience. In past few months, Microsoft partnered with an array number of firms, including GlacierWorks, Atari, Red Bull to exhibit the astonishing results its browser could produce. At the same time, it also encouraged web developers to write optimized codes to make their website faster.
Microsoft wants you to rethink the web as we know it. Not only is the company working on making a modern browser which will enhance your browsing experience, it is also working on making the web much more beautiful.
"People expect their browser to be fast and so do we"
"Rethink is about where the Web has come from and where it can go with a modern browser like Internet Explorer. We’ve taken a different approach than others by helping create experiences that work well not only with Internet Explorer but across any modern browser and device," Microsoft stated in an official blog post.
