According to the software company at its Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) keynote speech, Internet Explorer will deliver "for the first time, a fast, fluid web experience in the living room". With help from Kinect, users will be able to have full voice control over the browser on the Xbox 360.

To add a bit more flavour (and control) to the browser, Microsoft has also integrated its Smart Glass platform into Internet Explorer, allowing users to scroll around the page, click links and pinch and zoom from their smartphone or tablet.

Microsoft also announced that SmartGlass will be added to Windows 8, but it didn't provide additional details.

According to Microsoft, Internet Explorer will be made available later this year on the Xbox 360.
