Internet Explorer 11

Microsoft unveiled plenty of Windows Phone 8.1 goodness in its BUILD conference in San Francisco yesterday. The company added a bunch of new features such as a customizable Start screen, new themes, Cortana, and others intended to make the Windows phone experience more personal. Apart from that, Windows phone 8.1 will also ship with the latest version of its browser, Internet Explorer 11.

IE 11 comes with some much needed features including InPrivate browsing, password caching and a Reading mode. InPrivate browsing will allow users to browse incognito as browsing data including history, temporary files and cookies will not stored by IE. Other improvements include the ability to view all open tabs you have on all your Windows devices including all your Favorites settings.

Windows 8.1 will start rolling out to existing Windows Phone 8 users by summer (May/June), while it will come pre-installed on new launches such as the Lumia 630 and Lumia 635. What do you think about the new improvements to IE 11? Will you start using the browser now that InPrivate browsing has been included?
