I recently upgraded to Windows 8 and found the 'tablet' version (ie the version of internet explorer accessed from the Start screen) to be preferable to the desktop version (it is built for a touch screen and the user interface is more immersive). However, I also use the desktop version as it as capabilities for web development, and plugins, etc, and found that the two versions of internet explorer act like different browsers and do not sync there tabs or history between each other which limits there use if you want to quickly swap between them.

How can I sync the tabs and (if possible, but less importantly) the history? I don't know whether this issue (feature?) is addressed in Internet Explorer 11 or whether it will require a separate program.

N.B. I am not running windows RT and so can run legacy programs.
