Internet Explorer 10 offers two browsing experiences in Windows® 8. The following table outlines how we are referring to these experiences in Windows 8.

 

Internet Explorer 10

The whole browser, which provides two browsing experiences: Internet Explorer, and Internet Explorer for the desktop.

Internet Explorer

The touch-centric, immersive browsing experience for the new Windows user interface.

Internet Explorer for the desktop

Similar to Internet Explorer 9, this browsing experience is available on the desktop, and uses a traditional tab layout.

IEAK Customizations for Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer for the desktop

Some of the customizations that you can make with the Internet Explorer Administration Kit 10 (IEAK 10) customization wizard are applied to Internet Explorer, some are applied to Internet Explorer for the desktop, and some are applied to both.
