Even though it’s April Fools Day, there has been some interesting information floating around about the upcoming (possibly IE10) web browser from Microsoft called Immersive Browser.
Before you dismiss this info as yet another joke, here is what you need to know: MS has uploaded the Windows 8 M2 (Milestone 2) build to its partners on Microsoft Connect a couple of days ago. Now obviously, once you share something with quite a few people, there is a high probability of a leak and OS screenshots (and that’s exactly what happened).
Here is how you can disable the blue dots in Opera
The easy way:
- Download this Opera 11 skin
- Place it to C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\skin (or similar location)
- Restart Opera
- Click Shift+F12 (or go to Appearance…), select second Opera Standard Skin
- All set!
Now here is a new benchmark for you to talk about: power consumption.
Turns out, Microsoft optimized Internet Explorer 9 not only for the performance but also for your wallet and productivity.
According to IE Blog, when it comes to power consumption, IE9 and Firefox 4 are the browsers to die for.
Want some good news? Just by using Internet Explorer 9 over Opera 11 you can have an extra hour of the battery life on your laptop!

So what could possibly make me choose Opera over any other web browser? A couple of things.
