Microsoft is trying its best to make Internet Explorer look cool again and for that, it has launched a couple of marketing campaigns. One of them is the partnership between Internet Explorer and ESPN for exclusive 3D graphics on a special website.
Many are looking forward to the release of Internet Explorer 12, as some users are complaining with problems related to freezing or proxy issues. But, all browsers have problems and what matters is what lies ahead. The Internet Explorer team has partnered with ESPN to bring some exclusive graphical content on the Essentials ESPN World Cup page. This is part of the Rethink IE initiative, whch showcases some immersive 3D artwork made possible with HTML5 and WebGL. Also, the webpage adapts and responds fast and immediate to Internet Explorer on desktop, tablet and smartphone mode, as well.
