Sharing Sites with Windows 8

This demo is a technical inspection of the way IE10 works with the Windows 8 Share platform. With our new rich preview of websites, you can now share a title, thumbnail image, and description of the current webpage, instead of just the link in the address bar.
Share what you see with IE10. Sharing the web has never been faster or richer than with IE10 and the Windows 8 Share charm. IE will use the site's markup to create a link preview to send to apps and people. Most of the supported markup is already included in sites that people share today. If your site uses the OpenGraph markup, or meta tags, then it's ready to go.
