Anyone who follows me at all in here knows I haven't been the biggest fan of Modern UI. That isn't because I think Modern UI in itself is a bad concept, I just disagree with MS attempt to force it upon us as the main act instead of letting us be drawn to it organically. An arranged marriage rather than trusting us to meet and fall in love on our own. Regardless, there are things about Modern UI that I like, chief among them is IE 10 - not without caveats. For a touch device, IE 10 is exceptionally easy to use. Zoom works fantastically and without lag, text is clear (on a small HD screen) and the swipe back and forth feature is really nice as opposed to trying to click a very small back or forward arrow. That little voice in your head says, "This is nice..." when using it. That being said, as with most things in Windows 8, there are some glaring inefficiencies which spoil what could have been a 5 star experience. Favorites Management is basically non-existent. I believe this is an extension of MS's "Take as much control from the user as possible" movement. On the other hand, typing in a website that you have visited previously does bring it up quickly. I guess MS assumes we are too dumb to manage our own favorites but somehow all have remarkable memories for website names. Font smoothing seems to work very well on my SP screen but looks quite zagged and pixelated in a larger format. MS has changed Cleartype somehow so it is less effective - again, I am sure they focus grouped this and contrary to all logic found that people actually prefer zagged fonts? I don't know, MS Research seems to come to quite a few counter-intuitive findings. The more likely reason is that MS is designing for higher PPI tablet screens that must also rotate and the old version of Cleartype handled rotation poorly. The fact this affects desktop users adversely is immaterial since we must be prepared to make sacrifices for the future. Once again, good idea badly timed as most potential Window 8 users still have non-touch, low ppi monitors and likely will for years. The rumor is that the Desktop version of IE 10 will offer swipe navigation as well as favorites management in Windows Blue. This would be awesome but would also give me one less reason to ever use Modern UI. If I were MS, I would make Desktop IE 10 really horrible so users are forced to use Modern UI IE 10 despite its deficiencies. In the history of software, forcing users to do things has always turned out well and MS wouldn't have to change their current strategy. WHAT THIS THREAD IS FOR: So anyway, use this thread to discuss the things you LIKE ABOUT MODERN UI and also THE THINGS YOU WOULD DO TO IMPROVE THAT THING YOU LIKE if you aren't 100% satisfied. Modern UI is like a pitcher with a great fastball but lousy control. Tell us what your favorite pitch is and how they could improve their control over it.
