A closer look at Internet Explorer 11 for Windows Phone

The Internet Explorer Team has published a blog post today taking a deeper look at Internet Explorer 11 for Windows Phone. Internet Explorer 11 comes with Windows Phone 8.1 and has some really cool new features such as quick access to your more frequently browsed websites, URL prediction, unlimited (and easy to access) tabs, in-line video playback, Reading View, and more.

One of my favorite new features of IE11 for Windows Phone is the ability to have my browsing data synced across all my devices – from my phone to my PC and tablet(s). This includes your favorites, history, passwords, and open tabs. I can pick up where I left off pretty quickly on any of my devices!


With Internet Explorer 11 for Windows Phone, you can also pin your favorite websites and blogs to your Start screen which will shoe rich site icons and update in the background with the latest content or posts. You can pin the Windows Blog to your Start screen on your Windows Phone and see a Live Tile that updates with our latest posts.
