Screenshots of Windows Blue and IE 11 published

    Many suspect that Microsoft is about to switch to frequent paid updates to the Apple-style operating system. Now we are developing Windows Blue - the next version based on Windows 8. In principle, it can be considered the first “service pack” for Windows 8, but it is likely that this will be a paid update.

    The other day, build 9364 was leaked , and a lot of screenshots were posted on the forum . Browsers highlight changes in the Metro UI interface and start menu, as well as the new Internet Explorer 11 browser with tab synchronization and Gecko compatibility mode.

    On one of the screens can be seen as the user-agent looks browser IE 11:

    Mozilla/5.0 (IE 11.0; Windows NT 6.3; Trident/7.0; .NET4.0C; rv:11.0) like Gecko

    For comparison, IE 10 is represented as aMozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 10.0; Windows NT 6.2; Win64; x64; Trident/6.0). The native rendering engine was mentioned in previous versions of IE . Therefore, the phrase “like Gecko” looks slightly unusual, which instructs the server to deliver content optimized for WebKit browsers . Firefox itself simply produces “Gecko,” and WebKit browsers say “like Gecko.”
