Mozilla and Opera Mock Microsoft’s Native HTML5 Claims

By | April 15, 2011 | 4 Comments

Mozilla And Opera Mock Microsoft's Native HTML5 ClaimsIt looks like not everyone is digging the native HTML5 marketing claims from the software giant.

With the launch of Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 1, Microsoft had to say the following:

Web sites and HTML5 run best when they run natively, on a browser optimized for the operating system on your device. We built IE9 from the ground up for HTML5 and for Windows to deliver the most native HTML5 experience and the best Web experience on Windows. The only native experience of the Web of HTML5 today is on Windows 7 with IE9.

Mozilla’s former director of Firefox, Mike Beltzner, was quick to respond, ridiculing the term on Bugzilla, the company’s bug tracking database.

IE10 and Windows Vista? Forget It

After dropping Windows XP support from the Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft continues to push forward and has now announced its plans to dump Windows Vista support as well.

As a result, IE10 will now only work with Windows 7 and newer operating systems.

It’s good that Google Chrome does not use the very same strategy. Otherwise, we would still be waiting for the Windows 10 to finally start using it.

Internet Explorer 10: Microsoft Immersive Browser

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).

IE9 to Firefox 4 Comparisons Are Misleading

By | March 31, 2011 | 9 Comments

IE9 to Firefox 4 Comparisons Are MisleadingAccording to Microsoft at least.

The Redmond firm proudly declared that IE9 had managed 2.3 million downloads a day after the browser’s release (14th of March), but is obviously feeling the heat with Firefox’s 4 more spectacular numbers.

Ryan Gavin, senior director of IE marketing, had the following to say:

With Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 4, and Chrome 10 all hitting their final releases recently, drawing instant comparisons around downloads or initial usage is a natural temptation, but unfortunately you can’t do it quite yet.
