One of the things Microsoft did not bring up to date in Windows Phone 7 is its browser. While better than the even older browser technology used in Windows Mobile 6, Windows Phone’s Internet Explorer 6 based browser lacks features found in modern mobile browsers like the ones use in the iPhone and Android phones. Much of this promises to be remedied in the IE9-based browser that will be part of the Windows Phone Mango update, however.

You can get a preview of Mango’s enhanced browser by checking on Microsoft Internet Explorer Mobile Test Drive page on your desktop computer. You can find it at:

You will need an HTML5 compatible browser to see the demos in the test drive.
