Today, the Windows team shared that after much anticipation, Windows 8 is available to the world.

Windows 8 represents a tremendous step forward in reimagining what people can expect from the devices in their life – whether PC, tablet, or something that can be both.

The entirely new Internet Explorer 10 is a huge part of the reimagined Windows experience.

Internet Explorer 10 May Score Well with RoboHornet, But It’s Even Better for Web Browsing in the Real World

Yesterday Google released its latest micro-benchmark, RoboHornet, in which Internet Explorer 10 scores rather well.  While we appreciate the gesture, members of our engineering team took a look at the benchmark and found that RoboHornet isn’t all that representative of the performance users might encounter on real-world sites.

I am incredibly excited to see what kinds of apps developers build for Windows. I make it a habit to regularly check the Windows Store for new and interesting apps.

There certainly appears to be more than a little enthusiasm for browser numbers these days, and it’s great to see early adopters adopting the latest browsers across the industry. With Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 4.0, and Chrome 10 all hitting their final releases recently, drawing instant comparisons around downloads or initial usage is a natural temptation, but unfortunately you can’t do it quite yet.
