Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) Update

By | October 5, 2007 | 4 Comments

Internet Explorer 7 IE7That should be some exciting news but there isn’t. I was actually expecting something more from Internet Explorer 7 update as it’s been ~1 year since IE7 was released. So when you get some news after 1 year “quiet” development you expect something new. Maybe that’s just me, you decide. Here’s Internet Explorer 7 Update changelog:

  • The menu bar is now visible by default.
  • The Internet Explorer 7 online tour has updated how-to’s. Also, the “first-run” experience includes a new overview.
  • We’ve included a new MSI installer that simplifies deployment for IT administrators in enterprises.
  • That’s all! Ok, now serious, what are the changes?

  • Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) check removed.
  • (Windows XP users). Will this change increase IE market share?

    ZoneAlarm ForceField Beta Released

    By | September 26, 2007 | 0 Comments

    ZoneAlarmZoneAlarm Forcefield beta has just been released for Windows XP and Windows Vista. It should be working with Internet Explorer 6-7 and Firefox 1.x-2.x versions. So what is it all about? It can protect you from various “bad things”. And as they say: “Protect yourself by creating a virtual “You” on any PC…”

    ForceField lets you connect and communicate the way you already do online, only with a combination of protective measures that makes you impervious. It uses a virtualization engine that shields your computer and personal data from Internet and computer-based threats. It also includes numerous protection layers to combat phishing, spyware and dangerous file downloads.

    Isn’t that a good idea?

    More details.

    It’s a Beta only, still many issues needs to be fixed. However, feel free to try it if you are interested.

    Known issues:

  • Virtualized surfing – Creates a “bubble of security” around your browsing session that works two ways: it protects your PC from Web site threats such as drive-by downloads; and protects your browsing session from threats on your PC
  • Seamless use – surf as you always do without any special knowledge required and no interruptions
  • Keylogger jamming – protects your browsing, banking and shopping by disabling keyloggers/screengrabbers that may reside on your PC
  • Anti-spyware scanning during your browsing session to protect you as you bank and shop
  • Phishing and fraudulent Web site warning and protection
  • Dangerous download scanning and protection
  • Private browsing to completely erase your surfing tracks from your PC (not yet in the beta)
  • Svelte proportions – ForceField can be deployed to any PC within about 30 seconds in its Instant ForceField form (not available in current beta), making it convenient for on-the-go use on shared public computers.
  • Full known issues list.

    Learn more.

    Download ForceField 1.0.158 Beta.

    Animated Favicons, Firefox Only?

    By | September 12, 2007 | 3 Comments

    Web BrowsersIs there anything wrong with the code itself or only Firefox (and Firefox based browsers) can handle animated favicons?

    [link href="ico.gif" TYPE="image/gif" REL="icon"]
    Changed <> with the [] so code would be visible.

    http://www.pokelondon.com

    I’ve checked this site with Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2.0.0.6, Opera 9.23, Opera 9.5 Alpha, Safari 3.0.3 Beta, and only in Firefox I’ve seen animated favicon. Any ideas?

    5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Internet Explorer

    By | August 30, 2007 | 9 Comments

    Internet ExplorerIt’s time for some critics I guess. There are more than just a 5 reasons of course. But thought to start something like “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like…” topic. Who knows, maybe it can help web browsers developers (or maybe not).

    1. It’s slow.
    2. Lot’s of bugs (insecure).
    3. Slow development.
    4. Only basic features.
    5. It doesn’t support web standards.

    Tomorrow I will be posting “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Opera”, then “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Firefox” and so on.
