The new Internet Explorer (version 10) is just as you would expect -- with a vaguely 'Mac'-style feel about it, with the high-quality font rendering. It has much of the same content and feel about it to the Windows Phone 7 browser, but a long way is yet to go before all sites will be compatible. Other browsers, such as Chrome and Firefox, work well on Windows 8.
Websites can be converted into Start screen tiles in an instant, by clicking the pin in Internet Explorer's menu. It means you can keep fully up to date from wherever you are, just by clicking on the newly-created tile on the Start screen.
The Control Panel looks entirely different, but still contains all the usual stuff you would expect. Here you can find your personalisation settings, such as your Start screen user tile or the background wallpaper that presents itself on the lock screen.
