Microsoft has announced that the newly redesigned website for the 22tracks music discovery service has gone live with the help of the Internet Explorer team.
22tracks is a relatively new service with apps available on all major platforms which provides playlists created by local DJs from Amsterdam, London, Paris and Brussels. Now the startup has launched a touch friendly website using the expertise from Microsoft's Internet Explorer team who have been focusing on making IE 11 the best browser for touch screens.
The redesigned website offers an almost native experience through the browser using various HTML5 features. According to the Windows blog, the team behind 22tracks aims at making the website a combination of good design, music and HTML5 web standards.
The 22tracks website is now a part of the rethinkie.com campaign which also includes various web based games such as Contre Jour and Atari Arcade developed in collaboration with the Internet Explorer team. Microsoft has enabled XBOX Music support for 22tracks in order to simplify purchasing the music played on the website.
