"Investigating new, public reports of a vulnerability in all supported versions of Internet Explorer, and on completion of this investigation, Microsoft will take the appropriate action to protect our customers." - Microsoft

Microsoft has just issued a warning about an un-patched zero-day vulnerability of their browser Internet Explorer which leaves Windows open to attacks. The case, which was discussed in Microsoft’s Security Advisory 2488013, relates to Internet Explorer’s handling of malicious Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) code. This can be exploited to overwrite uninitialized memory and execute arbitrary code.

The flaw can be exploited via remotely run code under the account of the user by simply visiting a CSS webpage that contains the malicious code. Unfortunately, there is no fix yet, although Microsoft reports that they’re investigating the issue.

Chrome Gets Its Own PDF Viewer

Written on November 05, 2010 by B Waldorf

1 person

Viewing PDF file using Chrome causes headache to many people. But finally, Google came up with its very own PDF viewer. It is still in beta so first thing first, switch first to beta.

For the fans and supporters who are way too loyal with Google Chrome, viewing PDF files in the browser is such a pain in the ass. Good thing Google is rolling out a better way to view PDFs on Chrome. Chrome’s built in PDF reader will be available in beta versions only. If you are using the non-beta Chrome then download the beta to get this update.

“To open a PDF document, you’d typically need to install additional software or browser plug-in in order to view it in a web browser. With the integrated Chrome PDF viewer now available in Chrome’s beta, you can open a PDF document in Chrome without installing additional software. The PDF document will load as quickly and seamlessly as a normal web page in the browser,” said Googler John Abd-El-Malek on Google Chrome blog.

Good job for Google for creating such innovation. This does not mean kicking Adobe on the shins but simply finding faster way to manipulate PDFs.

IE9: Leaked Preview with Minimal Toolbars and UI

Written on September 08, 2010 by B Waldorf

This leaked preview shows the IE9 in full action.

We saw a YouTube video with a few big hits showing Microsoft’s upcoming Internet Explorer 9 in action. Unlike the previous previews, this one is completely different. The show appears to be the full UI and chrome around the browser. Not much to observe because they gave a super minimal UI for this.

The toolbars on top give not so much feature. There are forward and backward buttons, a web address bar and three buttons to the right which happens to be a Home button, Favorites and an arrow that might be just the hidden toolbar for the menu options. The frame lacks audio description and semi-transparent. There are IE demos that shows speed and hardware acceleration.

Needless to say, the reaction on the thread isn’t much happy to look at.

Happy 2nd Birthday to Google Chrome!

Written on September 03, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

After ten years of existence, a new bolder Chrome is unleashed.

Time flies so fast. It’s hard to believe that it has been two years since the Chrome browser first showed up on web. During that time, Chrome undoubtedly took over the 7.5% of the browser market all over the world. It was obvious that Internet Explorer and Firefox took the 60.4% and the 22.9% of market share. But that is 10 years we’re talking, and Opera holds a little less than 2.4%. Impressive performance for Chrome.

Now on its second year, Google has established a stable foundation for Chrome 6. Making itself known as “The Modern Browser”. The Chrome 6 are gifted with lots of improvements but still focused on the Speed and simplicity.

Like the summer release, the version is tagging along the Adobe Flash built in. With the top notch HTML 5, it is simply the browser we need.

With the predominance of HTML 5, we are trying hard not to imagine the cyber world not growing under the wings of Chrome.

The growth of the browser has quickly started, fended off Netscape in the late 90s to dominate the browser landscape.

Google Lets You Open Multiple Accounts in One Browser

Written on August 05, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Comments Off

Google lets you economize your effort by devising a multiple sign-in feature in Google Accounts. This feature makes browsing through Google products an almost seamless, more productive and more favorable experience.

You can now spare yourself some time and effort by not switching from one browser window to another, or signing in separately to multiple Google products. Thanks to Google! If the multiple sign-in feature is enabled, which is currently the default, signing in can now be done on the Google Accounts homepage. An overview of your current Google accounts will appear afterwards, allowing you to choose which product you will want to first work on.

This advanced feature currently works only for Gmail, Google Sites, Google Reader, Google Voice and Blogger, among others. Note that the account id you use in logging in will be your default account throughout the session. If the product you are subscribing to does not support multiple sign-in, you will automatically sign in with your default account in order to use the product. And once you sign out from one account, you sign out from all accounts at once.

It is one interesting feature that can keep getting better. If only Google will work on the three accounts per login limit right away, right? What do you think?
