Less browser, more web

Internet Explorer 10 is built for touch

Panning for scrollable regions, double-tap and pinch zooming, touch selection, and press-and-hold context menus are all part of built-in touch support that can enhance site interactivity. Try using the new Pointer and Gesture events that support multiple input types, including keyboard, pen, and mouse.
