Latest IE update now supports anchors on pages Apps
This isn't strictly 10.x news, but still significant ...

Two years ago, I noticed that when I would bookmark a website that had an anchor in its URL (for example, the links to new comments in the "What's New" box on Mac OS X Hints), the anchor would not carry over. I let Microsoft know about the bug in the appropriate newsgroup, and they responded, "We don't support bookmarks to anchors because we've found that most of our users create these bookmarks by mistake." Read the whole thread if the mood strikes you; it's a small but remarkable insight into the Microsoft mindset, methinks.

But Microsoft has evidently now reversed itself on this; anchors are now preserved in bookmarks. I'm fairly sure this is a relatively recent development, perhaps even as new as 5.2.2.
