We recently announced support for the Touch Event API in Internet Explorer for Windows Phone 8.1 Update as a part of our commitment to make the Web “just work” for our users. This means IE now supports all three major pointing input APIs: Mouse Events, Touch Events, and Pointer Events. Mobile browsing experience gets better, but at the same time developers start wondering which API they should use.
