Internet Explorer 10 – Built for touch

Get the best of the web with IE10 – it's a Windows 8 winner

Internet Explorer 10 has been built from the ground up to take advantage of the power of Windows 8 and Windows RT, and will give you a fast and fluid web experience.

Surf the web and visit your favourite sites with super simple touch controls that appear when you need them and quietly get out of the way when you don’t.

In addition, websites run at full screen with no distractions, meaning that the content really shines. Additionally you can Flip Ahead or back through your websites with the flick of a finger – no more searching for the forward and back buttons.

It's all about the little things too, like tiles and tabs for frequently visited sites which are oversized for easy tapping, the url and search box in one, and super-simple pinning of perennial favourites to the Windows 8 Start Screen for easy access.

Easy access is a key trend for Internet Explorer 10, one showcased by a neat little feature called Flip Ahead. Quite simply, instead of having to click through your pages of search results by a tiny number or arrow, you can enable Flip Ahead and simply swipe. The browser is clever enough to realise that you want to move to the next page of results – allowing you to swipe with your finger in a totally natural and easy touchscreen gesture. Just made sure it's selected in settings and you're good to go.

Of course, Internet Explorer 10 is designed for desktops too, so your favourites, passwords and other preferences can be mirrored across all your devices – it's a hassle free life with IE10!
