Internet-Explorer-11-Released-For-Windows-7

Internet Explorer 11 was just launched with Windows 8.1. It has been available as a Release Preview on Windows 7 for a while, but now Microsoft is ready to roll out the final version to all users globally. We often harp on about Chrome and Firefox, but you may be surprised to know that IE11 is a mature, modern web browser. Microsoft has made some radical changes under the hood, with the end result being that IE11 is 30% faster than other browsers out there. “IE11 on Windows 7 improves performance across the board with faster page loading, faster interactivity,...

Streamline Your Life For Cheaper Prices Using IFTTT And Yahoo Pipes!



money

A great irony of Black Friday is that average prices begin escalating during a period when sales hit new annual lows. A good way to counteract this trend is through cutting costs down on goods you purchase on a regular basis. The key is in tracking prices using monitoring software and buying in bulk. I’ve written before about handling specific purchases and tracking rebates using spreadsheets. This article covers how you might use spreadsheets, IFTTT, and Yahoo Pipes to track consumable items that you use on a regular basis. This method provides instantaneous notifications whenever an item you’re looking for...

Online shopping is so popular that we’ve even written an online shopping guide for you. But when it comes to buying clothes online, there’s a hitch. Most products only need to be scrutinized for quality, but clothing needs to fit. Reviews can be helpful — as long as you ignore the fake user reviews — when determining quality, but clothing...

muo-w8-keyboard-ft

How do you feel about typing on your Windows 8 tablet touchscreen? Are you comfortable with it, or do you want more features?

A Google Parameter Brings Back the Black Bar



If you're missing Google's black navigation bar, there's a parameter that brings it back. If you add "?noj=1" or "?noj=0" to a Google search URL, you'll temporarily replace the app launcher with the black bar. Here's the "black bar" version of the Google homepage: http://www.google.com/?noj=1.






This doesn't change the interface permanently and it's not clear for how long it will work. The parameter also disables Google Instant and replaces it with the old Google Suggest.

Mailbird: Change The Way You Use Email [Giveaway]



mailbird-feat

Things on the Internet are not as private as we want them to be. For most of us, our entire online communication resides on someone else’s server. And in most cases, it’s Google’s servers we rely on. But more and more users are looking for alternatives. Ways to handle their email without storing it in some huge company’s remote server. For those users, Mailbird is a great option. Mailbird is an email client for Windows with IMAP support for almost all email providers. According to Mailbird’s website, they never scan your emails and never store them on their servers.

YouTube Tests Google+ Comments



YouTube already tests the new commenting system powered by Google+. I took these screenshots while not being signed in to my account. After signing in, I got the standard comments.



Here are the new features:



* Smarter sorting: see more from people you know

* Meaningful conversations: new threaded format and +mentions encourage discussion.

* Comments appear from both YouTube and Google+.









"Comments you care about show first. You'll see comments at the top of the list from people in your Google+ Circles, from creators, and from popular personalities. Comments with many likes and replies will rank highly as well. Choose Newest First to see the most recent comments instead. Replies are threaded (like Gmail) so you can easily follow conversations. Google+ posts that link to videos or channels will also appear as comments on YouTube, marked 'via Google+'. You can report any comment for spam or abuse. If you're a creator, you can also use comment moderation tools for comments on your videos or your channels," informs Google.



"By default, your comment will be public on YouTube. You can also have a more private discussion by sharing your comment just to specific people or Google+ circles. Click Edit to enter the people and circles you want. On mobile apps, tap the field that shows the visibility of your post. You can also share your comment as a post on Google+. Only the people you choose will be able to see the comment on Google+."






You can also add rich text using the old Google Talk tricks: *bold*, _italic_, -strikethrough-.



The new commenting system is already enabled for YouTube channels, so you can already test it. Here's a random YouTube channel that uses it.

Pegman in the New Google Maps



Pegman is back in Google Maps. When Google unveiled the new desktop interface for Google Maps, the cute Street View guide was missing.



"To discover a world of imagery at your fingertips, look no further than Pegman – your guide through Street View – who you can find in the lower right corner of the screen. Click on Pegman, and areas with Street View imagery will light up in blue. For a street-level preview, hover over any highlighted road, then click to dive into that location. As you zoom in, you'll also see blue circles indicating where you can find user-uploaded photos, including Photo Spheres – immersive, 360º panoramas taken from land, air, and sea. Click on a yellow circle to see inside restaurants, museums, and more," informs Google.






I don't see Pegman yet, but it will roll out in the next few days or weeks. I'm sure that the yellow icon will be easy to spot once the new feature is enabled by Google.



The new Google Maps added a few other useful features: you can now preview directions by clicking "preview steps" and explore 3D bird's-eye view imagery in Earth Tours. "Wherever you see the Earth Tour icon, you can click, sit back, and get a virtual tour from a soaring angle. Dive into Boston or circle the Alps." There's also the new Google app launcher that replaces the black bar and some new icons for settings and help that are placed at the bottom of the page, next to the "Explore" box.












The features are available in the new Google Maps for desktop and Google says that "more of you will begin to see the new Maps experience," which probably means that the new Maps will start to replace the classic Google Maps. I'm sure that the classic interface will still be available for a while, at least until Google adds the missing features and improves the features that require WebGL.

Microsoft Aims To Lure Gmail Users With A Blunt Comparison Website



microsoft-gmail

As the old saying goes, when they start insulting you, you’re obviously doing something right. And judging by the comments being thrown Google’s way by Microsoft about Gmail, it’s pretty obvious that Redmond is worried. He’s worried enough about Gmail to build a new website and start a public smear campaign. On the Microsoft-owned and built “Keep Your Email Private“, Microsoft fires the first blunt salvo right away by declaring in big lettering : Think Google respects your privacy? Think again. And with hardly a moment to catch their breath, they charge : Google goes through every Gmail that’s sent...

Google Search App, the Android KitKat Launcher



Ron Amadeo from Ars Technica noticed last week that Google's KitKat launcher is actually an extension of the Google Search app. "While developing KitKat, Google made a very interesting decision: rather than graft a few new search UI pieces onto the home screen, Google threw the existing home app in the trash and turned all home screen functionality over to the Google Search app."



It turns out that the launcher is powered by the Google Search app and it doesn't work if you disable the app. This is not unexpected: two of the standard features of the Nexus home screen are added by the Google Search app: the Google search bar and the swipe up gesture for Google Now. KitKat brings support for the "OK Google" hotword, so you can trigger Google Voice Search without pressing a button, and adds a new gesture for Google Now: swipe right.



I installed the updated Google Search app and the launcher on an old Galaxy S2 using the instructions from Phandroid.com. I must say that the experience is completely different from Jelly Bean: the app launcher no longer includes widgets and it looks more crowded, the entire launcher can be managed from the Google Search app, you can no longer disable and customize cards from the settings.









The full-screen Now widget can only be removed if you disable Google Now in the settings or if you install a different launcher.






You can now add as many shortcuts and widgets as you want because the number of screens is unlimited.









The home screen includes a search box, a Voice Search button, hotword support for Voice Search and a Google Now screen. These are the main features of the Google Search app, so you'll use it without opening it. Removing friction and making the experience more seamless will encourage more people to use Google Now.

New Screen Sharing Apps Do Not Require Plugins



The next generation of screen sharing apps work directly inside the web browser, thanks to WebRTC, and require no separate plugins or proprietary codecs.





This story, New Screen Sharing Apps Do Not Require Plugins, was originally published at Digital Inspiration on 06/11/2013 under Screen Sharing, Software

Google Drops Support for IE9



The Google Apps blog announced that Google will drop support for Internet Explorer 9, now that Internet Explorer 11 is available. "We support the latest version of Google Chrome (which automatically updates whenever it detects that a new version of the browser is available) as well as the current and prior major release of Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari on a rolling basis. Each time a new version of one of these browsers is released, we begin supporting the update and stop supporting the third-oldest version."



This policy is great for Chrome and Firefox, which automatically update to the latest version of the browser. This way, most users run the latest version of Chrome and Firefox, they get the latest features and security updates. The policy is not useful for Internet Explorer, which doesn't update automatically and has limited OS support. Starting from 2011, Microsoft updated Internet Explorer every year and each new release added support for more web technologies and made the browser faster. IE9 was released in 2011, IE10 was released in 2012 with Windows 8 and IE11 was released last month with Windows 8.1.



IE11 is only officially available for Windows 8.1. There's a release preview for Windows 7, but that's mostly for developers. Windows 7 and Windows XP are still the most popular Windows versions, so IE11's market share is pretty low.



According to StatCounter, IE10 is the most popular IE version (12.42%), followed by IE8 (9.45%) and IE9 (5.88%). They're low percentages, but this means that Google's apps only support one of the top 3 IE versions and less than half of the IE users will be able to use Google's services without issues.






"Google's test plans have been adjusted to now stop all testing and engineering work related to Internet Explorer 9 (IE9), as Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) was released on 17 October 2013. End users who access Gmail and other Google Apps services from an unsupported browser will be notified within the next few weeks through an in-product notification message or an interstitial pages with information about modern browsers and how to upgrade to them."



Supporting old browsers is a lot of work. Instead of spending time testing sites in old browsers and fixing bugs, you could add new features. Still, Google's policy seems to target IE's fragmentation and force users to switch to other browsers that are updated more frequently (Chrome and Firefox).



Android has a much bigger fragmentation problem than Internet Explorer. Supporting only the latest 2 Android releases (4.3 and 4.4) would mean targeting less than 3% of the Android devices. The most popular Android release is always 3 or 4 versions behind.

Google Operating System, Again a Phishing Site?



Back in September, I wrote about Netcraft, who incorrectly flagged this blog as phishing. Many applications use the Netcraft backlist, so Opera, Kaspersky and probably other apps prevent users from visiting this site. I reported this issue to Netcraft, who solved it, but the site was added again to the blacklist a few days later. A Netcraft employee promised to flag the site as safe.



The issue is that Netcraft only flagged googlesystem.blogspot.com. Blogger redirects to domains like blogspot.co.uk, blogspot.ro, depending on your country. Now Netcraft flags as phishing all googlesystem.blogspot.* URLs, except for googlesystem.blogspot.com.






Google Safe Browsing also shows a phishing warning for googlesystem.blogspot.ro, googlesystem.blogspot.com.br and probably other similar URLs. "Reported Phishing Website Ahead! Google Chrome has blocked access to googlesystem.blogspot.com.br. This website has been reported as a phishing website. Phishing websites are designed to trick you into disclosing your login, password or other sensitive information by disguising themselves as other websites you may trust."






I reported this issue to Netcraft and Google, so hopefully it will be solved. I just don't understand what triggered these phishing warnings and why they're no longer limited to Netcraft.
