Time: 13:37 EST/18:37 GMT | News Source: Wired | Posted By: Robert Stein

The web has been relegated to second-class status with the rise of apps, but itís still very much alive. Companies like Microsoft, Google and Firefox are investing heavily in their web browsers to keep them relevant and make the web experience more like, well, an app. The future of the web is the touch-based gestures like we use on our smartphones. Microsoft, in particular, has been promoting this vision since the launch of Windows 8. It is hardly alone in this endeavor, but Redmond is hyper-focused on ensuring websites look and feel a lot like the apps we use on our iPhones and Android devices. It is providing specific tools to developer, like the recent modern.IE tools to let developers test their web apps across different browsers, to make it happen. That, along with Explorerís browser-specific functionality, is getting web developers excited.
