"Our [goal] with Xim is to change the way people share in the moment," said Microsoft Software Engineer Steve Ickman in an Inside Microsoft Research Blogpost.

Xim lays the groundwork for frictionless content sharing, according to Ickman.
Apart from the upcoming iPhone version, Ickman hinted that Xim may pave the way for more low-friction sharing experiences from the company.
"We want to simplify the way you get large groups of people quickly connected and into a Xim. We have ideas for experiences that span multiple devices, such as my tablet and my phone," he said.

Not long after that, I was contacted by Steve Ickman, a researcher at Microsoft. After providing him with a bit of information, Steve told me that the bot I saw was indeed his, and that it is only somewhat related to Bing. He said that the reason the robot was using an Internet Explorer user agent string was because a lot of (badly written) websites will refuse to give content to a user agent that they don't recognize. Having programmatically scoured the web myself, I can commiserate. To make things easier on people like me, however, Steve said that he would update the user agent string that his bot presented to make it clear what the crawler is doing.
