Yesterdays Undies: Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 8!!!

March 20th, 2009 No comments

A quick note that the once mighty beast that is Internet Explorer (affectionatley also dubbed, Internet {Exploder, Exploiter etc}) has released the much awaited version 8.

Internet Explorer 8 About BoxThere’s also a review on eWeek for IE 8 and an Exclusive interview on TechRadar with Microsoft’s John Curran.

Direct download links for your platform:

Grab it while its hot and add it to your list of browsers to test, or just use SuperPreview. UPDATE: we tried it, and our initial thoughts were it was lamey, stick to BrowserShots.

Whilst its downloading, checkout the History of the Internets, everything from the days of Marquees and annoying overdone GIFs, to the days where every fscking site had a flash video, to the brighter days of today, when we all seem to walk to stalk everyone else and see what they’re up to.

I’m running Windows 7 on this lappy so unfortunately you wont be able to install the RTM if your in the same boat.

In terms of security, unfortunately IE8 was defeated at Pwn2Own but not before everyones *favourite* fruit company’s Safari went down… in seconds for the second year in a row! Not even IE8 on Win7 was left out of the carnage.

Mmm I can taste those crApples rotting on teh Safari – they should add that to the list of security features.

Late for work, enjoy.

Microsoft releases IE8 Beta 1 and ASP.NET MVC RC1

January 28th, 2009 No comments

Wow, what a stinking hot day today was, utter chaos on our public transport system (which they are explaining and not making excuses about just incase you got con’nexed into thinking that) so it was nice to spend some time on the beach like the rest of the crowd.

More importantly, news in the virtual werld is that Microsoft have released Internet Explorer 8 RC1 for everyone to test against. Essentially its now feature complete and will behave like RC1 at final RTM. So give that a go, if you were a tester you’ll be glad to know that your pre-RC1 copies will upgrade. You wont be able to install it on Windows 7 though!

If you want to peak Inside Internet Explorer 8 theres a good interview on Channel 9 with Dean Haachamovitch and Jason Upton.

Then, theres the release of ASP.NET MVC Framework RC1. See the release notes and take a look.
