Windows 9 is making headlines often these days and it comes with a set powerful features which will appeal the consumers to switch from older version to the latest of Windows family.

Windows 9 : Virtual Desktop in action !

Want to get a taste on how Windows 9's virtual desktops work ? Here is the answer in the form of a video.

Here is a short overview, You can open up to 7 virtual desktops in total and you can run different apps in different desktops. When you have open applications in different desktops, you can hover over the desktop to see what's running inside and directly go to your application of your choice. Virtual desktops may be a bit confusing for average Joe's out there it is turning out to be a important and very useful feature for the power users in Windows 9. Windows had this feature for long enough but this the first time that this feature is built right into the core of Windows.Most of the Linux distros had this feature but implemented in a different manner, overall the native Windows implementation looks solid and easy to use.Microsoft is putting much more focus in the desktop right now and is yet to improve the Start screen and Start menu is now well integrated with Windows.
So do you think that Virtual desktops will make Windows much more easier to use and how will it help you to boost the productivity of your work ?

Watch the video you will come to know about how flexible and modern is the new Start menu in the next major version of Windows. You can still pin the apps to get live updates as you open the screen and one more good news is that users who like the current start screen can disable their Start menu for the start screen. The start screen is largely unchanged for now,though it will be different when Windows 9 ships out next year. You can also can run your favorite modern UI apps right into the desktop.

Internet Explorer 12 spotted online !

A new version of Internet explorer is now visible in the HTML5test page, if you don’t know what the website does. I will keep it short, this site is used to measure a web browser's HTML5 capabilities.

The new version is shown as Internet Explorer Dev Channel under the upcoming browsers which shows a small increase in the score of HTML5 as compared to IE 11. It also indirectly shows that Microsoft has started the internal development of the next major version of IE which is expected to ship with Windows 9 or the next major version of Windows which is expected to come out later this month in the form of a technical preview. And don't take the score as a final one as it only represents the developer preview of IE, Microsoft may very well improve the browser’s HTML 5 capabilities in the coming days. Watch this space for more information as I have already asked out for a reliable source to know what the browser has to bring.

Update : It's IE 12 confirmed, Thanks Nawzil !!
