Wait For Major Changes In Internet Explorer 11 With Windows Phone 8.1

The developer preview of Windows Phone 8.1 is out in the market. According to Microsoft support site, one of the major enhancements, which come with Windows Phone 8.1, is the updates for Internet Explorer 11. The software giant says, "You may have been hearing bits and pieces of news about IE11 on Windows Phone 8.1, and we’re excited to share the full scoop on user experience improvements with you today! Our team has been laser focused on delivering a massive upgrade to four key areas of your browsing experience: quick site access, fast and fluid browsing, safety and privacy, and accessibility."

The above statement means that you could expect Internet Explorer loaded with features with this all new phone operating system. Some of the major improvements included in the browser are improved prediction of websites and quick access features for frequently accessed websites. You can also open as many tabs as you wish with the new browser, without the browser freezing or hanging.

The blog post of the company adds, "We are excited to announce that Internet Explorer 11 will sync your browsing data across phone, tablet, and PC. This includes your favorites, history, passwords, and open tabs. You can now quickly pick up where you left off when you switch devices, and finally say goodbye to emailing yourself links!" Many experts consider this an interesting feature since it will save the history of a website browsed with another device and this facilitates accessing this website with a lot of ease.

The browser also comes with data saving features. According to Microsoft support site, "We brought DataSense to IE on Windows Phone 8 to enable up to 40% more browsing with the same amount of data, and no noticeable difference in the browsing experience. This time, we are introducing High Savings Mode, which downloads only the most important pieces of the Web site and heavily compresses images."

With the new additions and features of Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft hopes to put up a tough fight against its competitors like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. It is expected that Windows 8.1 will be out in the market by June 24. We will have to wait for a few more months until the operating system finally reaches us through some models. Since Microsoft now owns Nokia, we can expect many new models from the company with the Windows 8.1 operating system.
