Chinese website Win8china was the one to get its sticky fingers on the latest screenshot. The image came from a recent Windows Blue milestone build that is being prepared for the Internet Explorer 11 update. Microsoft launched Windows 8 with Internet Explorer 10 onboard, and now it seems the company is planning to pull a similar stunt with Windows Blue.

No word as of yet what kind of features users should expect with Internet Explorer 11, but going by Microsoft's recent track record, one must not expect much. Unlike Chrome and Firefox, Internet Explorer is lacking a lot of key features that have users coming back, and Microsoft needs to address this issue or watch its browser platform go the way of the dodo bird.

Windows Blue is said to be the latest version of Windows 8. The update is expected to address problems with Windows 8 along with bringing along key new features to help Microsoft position Windows as a true platform for tablet devices.
