In May, Microsoft officially took the wraps off of Mango, a release including hundreds of new features that create a smarter and easier approach to communications and apps. These include:
- A new email Conversation View which helps users to participate in long email discussions with their friends and co-workers.
- Threads that bring together my text, IM, and Facebook chat all into one conversation.
- App Multitasking, enabling users to efficiently work on their emails, listen to music, and then pop in and out of Words By Post games. Mango also connects apps to search results and deepens integration within the Hubs like Music and Video and Pictures.
- Internet Explorer 9 for fast web browsing and support for new HTML 5 web sites.
