We’re glad everyone enjoyed meeting our dear friend Eugene yesterday; we’ve known him for quite some time now. Of course, if you haven’t had an opportunity to meet him yet, be sure to head over to The Browser You Loved to Hate or watch him in action below.
We’re humbled by the positive reception IE is getting these days, including people who have highlighted:
- IE10’s cool touch capabilities and speedy performance
- IE10 on Windows 8 gives users a better touch experience than iPad and is catching the eyes of iPad users
- IE market share worldwide is at its highest level in over a year
So if you haven’t already taken another look, we’d encourage you to reconsider Internet Explorer. It’s perfect for touch, it’s amazingly fast and fluid, and it is hands down the best browser for Windows 8.
Director, Internet Explorer Marketing
How about adblock? Can we get that in IE yet?
Love it--brilliant strategy because it fully acknowledges the "reality" of it all.
Is the finished IE 10 for windows 7 almost done?
Keep focusing your marketing on attacking the very same people that you want so badly to become your customers... great strategy. Oh, and IE sucks.
Hummm.... Im aware that ie10 is different on wp8 and tablets/desktops, nevertheless, I have a lumia 920 and the touch experience is not better than my iPad/iPhone.... You have to zoom in considerably more to accurately highlight text and copy text . There is only a back button no forward button....
I really enjoyed this video. I watched it yesterday after seeing some press about it and after receiving a link to it from a friend. I'm glad you guys are working so hard to improve the image of Microsoft that has waned in the past few years. You've got some great products out now, and shaking off the last few years in a humorous way is a good thing.
