Can Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) Win This Battle?

By | November 16, 2008 | 10 Comments

While Internet Explorer 7 had only one good feature (are you curious now?), the upcoming Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) is slowly becoming a real web browser. But is it enough?

Standards Support

Web developers doomed IE7. Hours of wasted time, checking… Yes, it still breaks a web. Let’s do more coding… It took a while for Microsoft to realize that it’s a good thing for any web browser to support web standards. Internet Explorer 8 is their 1st correct step in building friendly relationships with web developers. Hope it will not break the web (again). Continue Reading

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

By | August 4, 2008 | 2 Comments

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.
