Category: Internet Explorer
Now with improved New Tab page.
If you are rocking the latest build of Windows 8.1 then behold as there is a new feature that was just added: a Bing search bar in the new tab page, just above the pinned sites.
The bad news? In case you installed Windows 10 Developer Preview, you won’t get the update, at least for now.
September, 2014 Desktop Market Share: Google Chrome – Up; Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera – Down
It’s that time of the month again when we take a look at the desktop market share numbers for the month of September.
Kicking things off with Internet Explorer, we’ve seen a small (0.09 point) decrease, from 58.46% to 58.37%
September, 2014 Mobile Market Share: Google Chrome, Android Browser – Up; Safari, Opera Mini, Internet Explorer – Down
Another month, another report.
As always, we start with Apple’s Safari, which (after a small bump) continues its downtrend, this time its market share has decreased by 0.44 point, from 45.07% to 44.63%.
No Internet Explorer 12 in sight.
With today’s release of Windows 10 Technical Preview, Microsoft has also detailed a list of new Internet Explorer 11 features that made it to the build.
So what should you be excited about?
- A support for HTTP/2 networking protocol, which means better performance
- Interoperable Top Level Domain Parsing
We might see the reveal on the 30th of September.
After the recent IE12 features leak, where we learned that Microsoft is working on a new user interface and proper extensions support, here’s what one of the software giant’s insiders, Mary Jo Foley, had to say:
- Internet Explorer 12 is codenamed Spartan
No screenshots yet.
Now here’s something to spice things up. According to the recent report, Microsoft is working hard on the next version of Internet Explorer (12), which is expected to be released with Windows 9 sometime in 2015.
While it’s unknown whether or not IE12 builds will be revealed later this month (with the Windows 9 Technical Preview), here’s what you can expect:
August, 2014 Desktop Market Share: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari – Up; Google Chrome, Opera – Down
After a small blip last time, it looks like Internet Explorer is back to business and is now sitting at the 58.46% % market share mark, up from 58.01% (0.45 point increase).
August, 2014 Mobile Market Share: Safari, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer – Up; Android Browser, Opera Mini – Down
Another month, another report.
Kicking things of with the usual: Apple’s Safari, which regained some of the lost market share, up from 44.83% to 45.07% (0.24 point increase).
Becomes even more awesome.
With the Windows 8.1 August update (which was supposed to be a much bigger deal and bring the new (aka old school) start menu, the software giant has also included the new F12 developer tools for Internet Explorer 11.
What’s new? Surprisingly, a lot, you can expect new icons and notifications, various console changes (with accurate autocomplete and more), improved in DOM explorer (now there’s a color picker, color wheel, eye dropper, etc.), debugger changes and so much more.
