Is Metro IE and 'Desktop' IE the model to adopt?

    General discussion

  • It's late, I'm tired but the question that's been nagging me for days is...

    Is the dual personality IE (metro version + desktop version) the model to adopt?

    Metro IE: minimal function basic browser

    Desktop IE: full function plug-ins and all browser

    Applied to the applications I write that converts to:

    Metro: Query, visualisation, navigation, presentation

    Desktop: Full functioned - as we'd write a Win7 application today if we'd never heard of Metro


    I like Metro but the one size fits all idea doesn't gel with me, your thoughts please...
