1. Sync your bookmarks and OS settings

Google and Mozilla have offered syncing on their respective browsers -- Chrome and Firefox -- for a while now. Microsoft finally provides a similar feature for Internet Explorer -- but only through Windows 8. This is useful only if you own more than one Windows 8 device, or if you want your home computer setting synched to your work computer that runs Windows 8.
