Firefox 4 is Finally Here

Written on March 23, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Mozilla is, after all, still up against its increasingly tough competition, as it officially releases Firefox 4.

After months of development and several beta releases, Firefox 4 has arrived, promising faster and easier web browsing.

With its first beta made available back in July 2010, the new Firefox version now has a better interface — making it appear more streamlined and user-friendly. New features include improved “doorhanger” notifications and Firefox Panorama — a feature that lets the user organize tabs into windows called “groups”, application tabs, and a redesigned extension manager among others.

Microsoft may be back in the web browser game with its IE 9, and Google’s Chrome browser is gaining popularity worldwide, but the ‘leaner’ and ‘quicker’ Firefox apparently holds up well against its competition.

Microsoft Warns About IE Security Flaw

Written on February 01, 2011 by Japhet Writ

1 person

Uh-oh! Microsoft's IE just got another zero-day hole from their enemies. If something's weird happening on your webpage, then you might be a victim.

After a publication of an attack code for a zero-day vulnerability, Microsoft has issued a warning for its Windows users.

Akin to a server-side cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities, the flaw enables the attacker to run codes when a malicious webpage is loaded in the same security context as Internet Explorer. It exists due to MHTML’s manner of interpreting some MIME-format requests for document portions.

Malicious CSS Codes Threaten Internet Explorer

Written on December 30, 2010 by B Waldorf

"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.

Google Chrome OS – The Things You Need to Know

Written on December 20, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

"Most of all, we are obsessed with speed. We are taking out every unnecessary process, optimizing many operations and running everything possible in parallel. This means you can go from turning on the computer to surfing the web in a few seconds. Our obsession with speed goes all the way down to the metal. We are specifying reference hardware components to create the fastest experience for Google Chrome OS." ---Google

Google changed the world. It made things easier, made lives lighter. One click on the search engine and everything you need is right in front of you. Call it spoon feeding but who wouldn’t want an easier access to things? From a search engine, to a browser and now an OS. Coming very soon is Google’s latest project, the Chrome OS. Speaking of the Chrome OS, what’s the drama behind this new thing? Will it make computers and laptops faster? Will it give people different web experience? Let AllWeLike help you with the questions that bug your brain about Chrome OS.

So, what is Chrome OS?

Chrome OS is Google’s venture on the operating system platform. It’s a forthcoming operating system designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications and based on the open source Chromium OS project.

Chrome OS, unlike others, will not be available as a download to run and install, although Chromium OS can be compiled from source by anyone. Chrome OS will only ship on specific hardware from Google’s manufacturing partners. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, resembling that of the Chrome web browser. Because Google Chrome OS is aimed at users who spend most of their computer time on the Internet, the only application on the device will be a browser media player.

[REVIEW] Why Use the Internet Explorer 9?

Written on November 28, 2010 by B Waldorf

2 persons

The Internet Explorer browser is almost out of the business when Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox entered the scene. However, Internet Explorer came back from the dead. Now, why should you use Internet Explorer?

Users who seldom browse the web used the Internet Explorer once. But as time goes by, different types of browsers came up and users are capable of change. Thus, IE hes been left behind. But honestly, Internet Explorer all through out the years produced a very good market share among its competitors. Though a bit down from where it used to be, it still remain standing. Mainly because they were brought to by Microsoft, or maybe because users trust IE so much that it’s difficult to let go.

All We Like, therefore, is showing the browser’s capability to bring out satisfaction and disaster to the lives of IE9 users after the skip.

The Downfall of Internet Explorer

Written on October 06, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

The reality hits: all things really change. Even though they dominated 50% of the Internet browser market early on, Internet Explorer is now falling down. With market shares dropping down, we say it is little too late for IE9.

Internet Explorer once dominated the web is now dipped in the mud. As the recent data from StatCounter shows, IE is now below the once 50% mark in the Internet browser market. In August, IE was 51.34%, but by the end of September it’s just holding a 49.87%. It dropped 10% yearly.

Meanwhile, growth from Firefox and Chrome are coming to its peaks.

Microsoft’s latest version IE9 addresses the issues that made them lose before. The company realized the need for compliance to web standards. Even if their advances are not small, it’s still late.

We are dutifully impressed about the IE9 but unlucky it doens’t hit the mark.

IE9: Leaked Preview with Minimal Toolbars and UI

Written on September 08, 2010 by B Waldorf

1 person

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.

Written on August 17, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

Our once favorite browser just turned 15!

First and foremost, let’s prepare a toast for the first browser who hit the Internet.

It has been 15 years since Microsoft introduced to us the Internet Explorer 1.0, which commanded almost 95% of the world wide web. Time flies so fast and IE is till striving hard for more years to come in the world wide web.

The Internet Explorer was born on August 16,1995. The Microsoft IE 1.0 is the first version retooled from a browser called Mosaic. It is licensed by the Microsoft from Spyglass Incorporated.

The growth of the browser has quickly started, fended off Netscape in the late 90s to dominate the browser landscape. In 2002, the mark of its peak, the combined version of IE made it to the browser market gaining almost 100% of market share. Just then it has fallen 60% from its original when new browsers came. Though the newest version IE9, the beta which just emerged for less than a month has promised a new start and re-energizing the giant E.

Whatever you say about IE, it is still the first one who introduced us the Internet. Happy 15th Birthday Internet Explorer!
