Internet Explorer 10 -- Windows 8 version

Windows 8 includes two different versions of IE10: a Desktop app that's very similar to the Internet Explorer you're used to, and a new Windows 8 app. When you launch the Windows 8 version of IE, at first all you see is a Web page, with no address bar or other controls. Right-click to display the App bar, and two sets of controls appear.

On the top are thumbnails that take you to recently visited sites, as well as buttons for launching a new blank tab and accessing more options such as closing all your tabs. At the bottom of the screen are familiar browser controls including an Address bar and forward, back and refresh buttons.
