First Sneak Peek of Windows 8 User Interface

Forget about the future concept of Windows 8 we’ve seen before.

Because Microsoft’s next operating system has been demoed earlier today, and for the very first time – you are going to see how the new interface looks like. Microsoft showed few aspects of Windows 8 UI and among those interesting to note include:

  • Fast launching of apps from a tile-based Start screen, which replaces the Windows Start menu with a customizable, scalable full-screen view of apps.
  • Live tiles with notifications, showing always up-to-date information from your apps.
  • Fluid, natural switching between running apps.
  • Convenient ability to snap and resize an app to the side of the screen, so you can really multitask using the capabilities of Windows.
  • Web-connected and Web-powered apps built using HTML5 and JavaScript that have access to the full power of the PC.
  • Fully touch-optimized browsing, with all the power of hardware-accelerated Internet Explorer 10.
