Microsoft dominates PC gaming and shares the console market with only two-other strong competitors, but the gap between PC gaming and Xbox narrows and widens each year as both sides of the company play catch-up with one another. One of the latest upgrades to IE development will allow customers to use their Xbox controllers to play web-based games with ease, the company announced the API details earlier this morning.
Other improvements come to WebGL performance and Microsoft added support for, “instancing extension, 16-bit textures, GLSL builtin variables, and triangle fans.”
The company left these details as well, laying out new updates and features that have been in the works.
- An enhanced debugging experience with event breakpoints that help you get to your event-driven bugs faster.
- Richer analysis capabilities throughout the Memory and UI Responsiveness profilers, which support further reduction of noise through multi-dimensional timeline filter, while further increasing the semantic value of the data being reported by lighting up performance.measure() based instrumentation and dominator folding.
- An improved navigation experience that provides more keyboard shortcuts (ctrl+[ and ctrl + ]), as well as new header notifications, which allows you to quickly determine whether any of the profiling tools are running or how many errors your page has.
