If you’ve been part of the Windows Phone community you’ve probably seen Joe Belfiore take the stage a handful of times the past few years. He’s more or less been the face of the Windows Phone team at Microsoft. However, his roles are changing within Microsoft. He’ll now be taking over app development for Internet Explorer.
It was in early September that we learned Joe Belfiore would be leading a team that’s focused on phones, tablets, and PCs. That move came about because of the internal shuffling currently being experienced by Microsoft as they move towards a devices and services company. Now The Verge is reporting that Microsoft will be leading a team that’s responsible for the app and user experience side of Internet Explorer.
In a way, he’s still working on a team that focused on phones, tablets, and PCs. But he’ll now be focusing directly on Internet Explorer across the different platforms. It’s also worth noting, that his team isn’t responsible for backend (Trident rendering engine) of Internet Explorer. The move comes after Microsoft’s Dean Hachamovitch switched roles to an unspecified new team. Hachamovitch was previously responsible for all of Internet Explorer, but his vacated role is being split into various positions, one of which has now been filled by Joe Belfiore.
Thoughts on the move for Joe?
