Faster performance, leading security protection, gesture based navigation more hard acceleration, and site-ready HTML5 support are some of the key features of IE10.
The Metro style interface is the main attraction of IE10. The Metro IE10 UI is cleaner and the browser gets out of the way, so the focus is on your favourite sites. The navigation bar appears only when you want it, so there’s more room for your sites. It also includes a touch keyboard.
