Check Out This Awesome Internet Explorer Ad: Explore the World Through Touch

More than anyone else at Microsoft, Internet Explorer marketing team gets it right often is creating great promotional videos for the most used web browser. The latest ad they posted on YouTube is on the touch capabilities of the browser.

We grow up experiencing the world through touch, so we built a browser to do the same. Discover the new Internet Explorer:

Internet Explorer 11 is now built on the concept of touch with following capabilities,

  • Internet Explorer is the browser built for touch, now with larger tabs, simpler controls, and fluid response to gestures.
  • Search the web right from the address bar. Just enter a search term or URL to start browsing.
  • Quickly flip through content on your favorite sites.
  • Switch between sites quickly with large, touch–friendly tabs.
  • Show other apps side–by–side with the browser for easy multitasking.
  • Pin your favorite sites for one–touch access right from the Start screen.
  • Internet Explorer beats Chrome and other leading browsers in a JavaScript performance test. Sites are lightning fast with the power of Internet Explorer’s improved performance and hardware acceleration.
  • Internet Explorer blocks 99.9% of socially engineered malware.
  • Wherever you are, Internet Explorer is the ideal way to play games, catch up on your reading, watch videos, and browse the web, of course. Use fast and fluid Internet Explorer across all your Windows devices—tablet, Windows Phone, and TV with an Xbox with an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

    I was waiting for the awesome but it never came…

    • ZloiYuri

      But it’s still nice.

        I think it’s awesome myself, why?? Because it shows that a child could use W8 and adults are complaining. I know this first hand because my daughter is only 16 months and users it like a pro.

          Well, in the MS dev conference one guy made a good point about this. If you change places of gas and break pedals in a car, a new driver learns as fast as anyone else to drive that car. But for people who learned that already the current way, its a different story.
          Seems like learning is easier than re-learning.

            The difference is I never taught her. She grabbed it on her own and learned it through trial and error. The difference is kids like to explore, adults are stubborn and have forgotten the fun of exploration.

            Nope, adults have gotten beatings and scornings (in the case of males) by the age of 12 there is no longer any fun in making any errors…

          • Duk3togo

            I got more beatings than most kids to the point my mother would make me bleed it was the norm then. I even got beatings in school by the principal/assistant principal (yup that’s how old I am). Since I now my own boss I can explore and make what ever errors I want but it still only took me 15 min to know the core working of W8.

      All depends on how you personally define awesome, or what you find awesome. I probably wouldn’t have called it awesome, but it is a very cool ad.

      If you wanted an awesome IE ad…Aizawa Inori comes to mind.

    My 4year old kid has found a lot of shortcuts to navigate Windows8 which i never new it existed. sure Windows 8 has made me dumb i really have to growup

    • Vương Vi-Nhuyễn – 王微軟

      Nope, many people simply lack the curiousity, when I started using Windows 8 I used every button, right-click mouse, charms bar, Etc. and I got used to it by a few days, on the other hand most older people I know just want to make Windows 8 work as much as Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 as possible, they call Windows 8 ”mouse-unfriendly” that’s not true, the truth is that you just have to try things out, customization and everything was easy if you’d just try out the right mouse button on random occasions, but those that lacked curiousity started whining and now Microsoft is slowly replacing this functionality on non-touch devices. :-(
