On my Win8 laptop, I guess Microsoft will find out that I use Visual Studio with Kinect Studio, MS Office, LibreOffice, and Firefox I'm sure Internet Explorer 6-9 leaked more information than that with the default settings.
I think that it isn't Internet explorer that is leaking info it is anything that accesses the web because I am very sure that the web security in IE is actually a shortcut and not just in IE becasue you can access the same security through the control panel and advanced security area that is if I remember properly
