Using SmartGlass, Internet Explorer will support gestures for easily scrolling, zooming, clicking and all that jazz. You know, like how you browse on your phone.

Internet Explorer on Xbox 360 will also, naturally, support Kinect voice control.

It's due to arrive this fall.

      They didn't show a a website like you'd normally see on a pc, it was like the website was forced into a metro-ek style. Thry also said interactive website so I'm unsure if it'll be what I was expecting.

        I'm assuming that Metro look is the interactive webiste.
