Built for Touch
IE11 has support for folders and custom tile pictures, which will sync with the desktop and across your other Windows 8.1 devices. And with pre-fetching and pre-rendering for up to two links in the background, there's very little delay when you swipe to go back or go to the next page. There's touch hover menu support too; this enables a hover menu to stay opened when you lift the finger. Drag and drop using touch now also works as IE11 adopts the HTML5 drag and drop standard.
