So, after all this talk...what will the update actually contain and/or change?

Well, WZOR mentioned (line below last screen-shot):

 

"kind of like the Visual changes are not visible, pokopaem deeper, report later:) ..."

 

Guess just have to wait.  :)

I wouldn't expect much from Update 1 for windows 8.1 as far as UI goes.  From everything that's been talked about so far it should just be a API update to winrt to bring it closer together with WP8.1s version of the APIs.  They could tweak some little things though but honestly I don't think we'll see anything big till 9.

So who's decision was it at Microsoft to give IE 11 a Win95-themed scroll bar? Surprised to see that the taskbar is still transparent.


Still not as bad as the back button been half cut off, i've really disliked that since it happened back on IE9.

Probably someone's who doesn't have a clue what they're doing; change for the sake of change (if it lives long enough till the final version comes out).

 

No, that's what the scroll bar already looks like on IE11's new tab page, and only that page.

 Yep, you're right, I just tested it out. I guess it's a bug.

I like that design choice.

Do you not just think it looks out of place?

 

It just looks messy to me, i gave up using IE around then anyway so i'm not too bothered.

Lol, that's like the worst timing ever to give up on IE since it only got dramatically better since IE9

I know standards wise IE got a lot better from IE9 onwards, however in regards to functionality and user interface it didn’t really do the job for me any more.

Sure it’s not a bad web browser these days, however IE can’t sync my bookmarks, extensions and settings between multiple os's, along with mobile devices. In comparison other web browsers can.

Looks like you can pin modern apps to the task bar now, unless you could do that before and i just never noticed.

You couldn't do that before, so it's definitely a novelty. There's also a new option 'Show Store apps on the taskbar'  in Taskbar Properties.

Apps on the first taskbar, instead of, the hidden second taskbar. +1 Microsoft. Slowly and tediously... a little more unification around the desktop.
