Some of the tests we have done show pure JScript performance improvements up to 2.5 times. We also measured the performance gains on common Gmail operations, like loading the inbox (34%), opening a conversation (45%) and opening a thread (27%) compared to IE7. Continue Reading

Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) and Private Browsing

By | August 20, 2008 | 6 Comments

Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) and Private BrowsingRumors are all over the net that the upcoming release of Microsoft’s next generation web browser IE will feature a private browsing feature (Mozilla Firefox decided to drop this one and haven’t or won’t include in Firefox 3.0/3.1).

So what is this all about?

Private browsing enables user to surf the web without leaving any “logs “about its activity. There will be no caching, cookies, history or neither the form data.

Why would you need this feature anyway? As most people notice, it’s for adult site users. Of course, this is not the only use. Some of the IE users requested this feature for ages. Maybe Microsoft is finally listening to its users?

Everyone Loves IE – Sitemeter Kills Thousands of Sites for IE Users

Everyone Loves IE - Sitemeter Kills Thousands of Sites for IE UsersThe behavior began few days ago whene Sitemeter updated their scripts. Unfortunately, they forgot about a bug of the Internet Explorer (really old one) that has been causing a “Operation aborted” error.

If your web page had a Sitemeter counter, Internet Explorer users eventually see an “Operation aborted” error message. Once they click OK, the whole page disappears and is replaced by a blank page.

Whose fault is this? Both of course. However, this is not a new and/or unknown bug; they just didn’t test it on Internet Explorer = bad idead.
