If our memory serves us correctly, Microsoft has been in cahoots with a fair number of companies in the past few months in order to optimize websites so that they will be able to function with the touch screen features of Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 8. Well, it seems that the work has been expanded to include select HTML5-based sites function better not only on Internet Explorer 10, but on Windows Phone 8 as well

One of the new features is for the news site Pulse, where it was originally optimized for Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 8 earlier this year. Pulse had then decided to do away with its previously released Windows Phone app from the download store, but has finally released an update to the Windows Phone app where it will work flawlessly on the Windows Phone 8 platform. According to Microsoft, “The updated site is completely adaptive and built using responsive design best practices. As we updated the site, we also optimized for performance, so that difficult animations or transitions have been selectively disabled or swapped for mobile friendly equivalents.”
