  • Switch to the “New, Safer Internet Explorer 8″ so says Yahoo [Puke]
    by Mike

    Firefox users and Yahoo frequenters, do you see anything different when mixing the two previously mentioned items? Look a little closer. If you're using Firefox and navigating Yahoo, take a look at Microsoft's Yahoo's new suggestion: "Switch to the new, safer Internet Explorer 8". Well, there's a few problems with this suggestion. First, IE 8 is newer, but not brand spanking new. Second, safer is debatable. And third, IE 8 while one of the more recent browsers to be released, is by far t...
  • IE 6 must die [Follow Up]
    by Mike

    You may remember the small post concerning IE 6 and the grass roots movement web wide that is moving to kill IE 6. While it is corporate standard and even for some home dwellers the browser of choice, IE 6 is a grossly outdated browser in terms of speed, security, and web standards support. Heck, when designing and coding a website, maintaining IE 6 support often means increased development time and websites that aren't as feature rich or content rich as they could be without IE 6 support. ...
  • Zune browser finally gets some screentime

    The Microsoft Zune may be the ugly, finally getting prettier step child that many love to hate and few actually love. But I can say that it has finally started turning into a device I would actually want to own. With the latest updates to the physical design as well as internal features, Microsoft's Zune is becoming quite the little media player/mobile web browser...even if it is a year or two late to the game. CNet whom gave the new Zune glowing initial reviews and opinions has finally pos...
  • Skyfire BlackBerry browser back in business

    Alpha testers of Skyfire's latest update to the BlackBerry version of the Skyfire browser will be pleased to know that after the little snafu a week or so ago that the alpha is back up and running with the latest alpha 3.5 -- Even before this update, Skyfire was single handedly the best BlackBerry browser out there...even in alpha! Yet with the new update comes even more mouth watering features that will surely sweeten the pot. The new goods include: Inline Text Entry Click-t...
  • IE6 No More: burying the old and busted one computer at a time
    by Mike
    Posted August 7th, 2009 at 12:02 pm
    For the general population, browsers and the differences in between themselves are hardly a care. As long as they can get online, read their articles and pay their bills, the general population is a happy population. Therein lies the problem. While many things can continue on positively for years with the mentality of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", technology and the internet are not like that -- not in the slightest. Case in point, a disproportionate amount of internet users are still...
  • Opera Mobile makes way to Android - brings flash along for the ride
    by Mike
    Posted August 6th, 2009 at 11:18 am
    Yes we know, you want flash, flash, and more flash on your mobile web browser. So far it has proven to be easier said than done. The puny processors and limited amounts of other resources limit flash playback performance to utter crap. Enter the new wonderful world of Android + Opera Mobile. Opera Mobile will bring forth what pretty much every other browser has failed at so far - reliable, stutter free flash playback, oh so they claim. I have high hopes though I won't be too disappointed ...
  • MobileMe online mail browser support growing? Chrome now in the mix.
    by Mike
    Posted August 6th, 2009 at 7:04 am
    While this may not be anything entirely new, and it's quite possible that I somehow missed an official announcement somewhere at some point, the old requirement of Mobile Me's online web portal, having to use either IE, FF, or Safari, seems to finally be expanding. While those three browsers are a few of the most popular, they are by no means the only browsers in the world. I was however pleasantly surprised roughly 30 seconds ago when I went to check my Mobile Me mail forgetting I was using...
  • Google Chrome 3.0 beta…come and get it!
    by Mike
    Posted August 5th, 2009 at 12:03 pm
    Building upon this mornings article about Google Chrome themes in the developer builds, it appears that a full blown more public worth Chrome 3.0 beta is now available. Since I already went over the Google themes earlier, we'll continue on with the enhancements the 3.0 beta brings. (more...)...
  • Google finally pushing out themes for Chrome *almost*
    by Mike
    Posted August 5th, 2009 at 7:38 am
    Google Chrome has become one of the more popular niche browsers in recent times among techies and normals alike. With its simple and unbloated interface coupled sheer speed that is at the top of the heap and you begin to see the draw that pulls people in. Google is constantly tweaking their products, adding in new features small and large in order to make our lives easier and more efficient. Perhaps one of the greatest requests for Chrome is that of themes or skins. While I personally like...
  • 3rd Party SkyFire BlackBerry browser leaked
    by Mike
    Posted July 27th, 2009 at 12:37 pm
    Add this to the top of your "gotta check out when I get home" download lists: SkyFire. But wait, I thought that was a closed beta and not even slated for public release anytime soon? Well, you be right. However a helpful/deceitful beta tester has let loose one of the most coveted programs to date so that all BlackBerry users may take any early bite of what is claimed to be one of the best 3rd party browsers to grace the Canadian born device. The original link has already stopped working. F...
  • BlackBerry OS 5.0 finally ushers in tabbed browsing
    by Mike
    Posted July 16th, 2009 at 5:52 am
    RIM and BlackBerrys are one of my top smartphone choices. They may not be the prettiest thing in town nor the most intuitive, but their sheer speed, simplicity, and messaging capabilities often make up for it. While the BB browser until recently has been the butt of jokes because it was downright terrible (even that's giving it some), OS 4.6 and 4.7 have brought many improvements in both speed and rendering quality to the in-house browser. OS 5.0 further improves upon the BlackBerry browser...
  • Opera changing the world as we know it 9:00am, June 16th at CEDT
    by Mike
    Posted June 12th, 2009 at 10:12 am
    Such claims of "chaning the world", "reinventing", and other judgement day sounding terms often come with a lot of hype and little substance to back them up. The latest company to use such tactics to drum up interest is brought to you by Opera in regards to (I'm assuming) an update to the Opera 10 beta they just released within the last couple of weeks. The way they claim to reinvent in the picture above leads me to believe that they may even release the final version. Granted, that's a fin...
