    i want something clarified. The multitasking changes in wp 8.1 mean what for the end user ? give me a real-life scenario where the difference between wp 8 and 8.1 in multitasking is noticeable .
    You want examples of functional changes, before they have even been officially shown and demonstrated?

    does mean that IE will be able to run Java applets as in Desktop browsers?
    JavaScript is not Java.

    well , people are talking about the back button suspending an app as opposed to closing it , so i assumed that we know some effects about the changes . On the topic , would suspending apps mean less resuming messages ?

    One effect of the back button thing, I guess, is to make it more Android like where repeatedly tapping back wont take you past the home screen. In WP8, it goes past the start screen and keeps going back until it has killed all the apps.

    I've noticed in most cases resuming takes longer than starting the app again. And it mostly resumes to the start of the app anyway, instead of where we left it.
    So this susending bullsh*t coukd turn out to be a real pain in the ***. Good thing they're bringing swipe down to kill, cos that'll be the most used feature now.

    Tombstoning has to be programmed into an application. It's not inherent in the OS, plus, it doesn't run in the background anyway. You don't have to close apps.
