US Senate Committee to review Windows RT browser complaints

Microsoft seems to have ruffled a few feathers with its plans for browsers on Windows RT. Mozilla blasted the company over being unable to produce a fully working browser, restricted instead to the Metro interface and guidelines, while Microsoft’s own Internet Explorer would be able to run on Metro and the classic desktop interface.

Microsoft has officially detailed its three versions of Windows 8, set to launch later this year, including Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro and Windows RT, formerly known as Windows on ARM.

However, Windows RT will be specifically for ARM-based tablets and PCs, and come preloaded with touch-optimized desktop versions of the new Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.

The latest version, for Windows Phone 8.1 devices only, now allows users to tell Cortana - Microsoft's virtual personal assistant, aka Siri for Windows Phone - to fire out a 140 character message without having to tap it in themselves. It's a welcome improvement, though it remains to be seen whether Windows Phone fans, jaded by the ongoing token saga crippling third-party Twitter clients, will warm to the software.
