Windows 8 'immersive browser' images surface

With the recent leak of Windows 8 build 7955 comes another feature Microsoft is secretly working on. The "immersive browser" is a unique Metro UI-style browser, with basic functionality as of right now.

Not too much is known about the browser yet, but based on reports and screenshots that have leaked onto the web, the browser offers users a very limited UI and navigation bar. With only a couple of options including the back and forward history buttons, an address bar with favicon, a refresh button and favorites, the browser offers a compact browser without all the unnecessary bloat.

The immersive browser can be unlocked through a registry hack in the latest 7955 build, along with the Webcam, pattern login, TaskUI, and PDF reader.
