IE8 with Google Toolbar: Problems?

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

I have had this one trouble with the new IE8 beta with the Google Toolbar. The Google toolbar would crash IE8 which would restart the browser and then would happen again in a continuous loop. The only way to fix this problem is to turn off the Google Toolbar via Tools>Toolbars>Google Toolbar. This gets rather annoying after a while so I decided it would be better to turn it off.

If you have any problems with the IE8 Beta you can leave a comment here about it. (Comments are on moderation so do not post them twice.)

IE 8 Will Be Standards-Compliant By Default

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

This article says that Internet Explorer 8 will be standards-compliant by default? Is it true? Will Microsoft start to comply with standards? I sure hope so as I am going to be probably be testing it out on my parents computer soon.

Here is the article:




IE8 Will Be Standards-Compliant By Default

Internet Explorer

A number of readers wrote in to make sure we know about Microsoft’s change of heart regarding IE8. The new version of the dominant browser will render in full standards mode by default. Developers wishing to use quirks mode for IE6- and IE7-compatible rendering will have to opt in explicitly. We’ve previously discussed IE8’s render mode a few times. Perhaps Opera’s complaint to the EU or the EU’s record antitrust fine had something to do with Redmond’s about-face.




I hope Microsoft was freaked out by Opera’s complaint to the EU or that the EU’s record anti-trust fine, though it could be both or none. Who knows other then the software giant itself.
