    Having IE11 on XBOX One would be very useful for me (with multiplatform development in mind)

    Having IE 11 would be much better as it has a far better synching of Favourites and browsing history between other Windows devices (such as Win 8.1 update 1 and Windows Phone 8).

    Bringing that same consistent functionality to Xbox One would be a great boost and make the ecosystem feel more cohesive.

    All modern versions prior to IE 11 are subpar. Infact the xbox 1 should have had the same update path as the Windows 8.1 versions of IE. This delay is unacceptable and I suspect it has not been prioritized because Microsoft is too busy backing in DLNA blocking in the Xbox 1. It has a browser it should be able to play all media types from local storage and should not need anything special to do it.

    Here is why
    IE10 - 335 out of 555
    IE11 - 376 out of 555

    IE11 provides better support with features like

    - better elements support
    - better location and orientation support
    - better output support
    - slightly better video support
    - better support for 2D graphics
    - WebGL & 2 3D graphics support

    The comparison

    Upgrading IE10 to IE11 will make the Xbox One internet browser better than the PS4 web browser

    PS4 HTML 5 test score is 354 out of 555

    Reddit brought me here. You should give a little background on what IE11 brings for those people that randomly come across this.

    Definitely a welcome feature, as the current IE is quite sluggish and I know 11 is a lot better in terms of speed.

    Yes please. I am prototyping an HTML5/JS game and the browser on the X1 is just lacking on performance and features.
