    More details on Pop-Up Blocking in XPSP2

    • 5 Comments
    There have been some questions about how pop-up blocking works in XPSP2 in the comments. Jeff Davis , one of the IE developers who worked on this feature in XPSP2, has put together a post ( http://blogs.msdn.com/jeffdav/archive/2004/08/25/220737.aspx ) that gives more details on what we consider a user initiated click. If you want to get better sense for how it works, please take a read through his latest entry - mouseDown + mouseUp = click . Thanks. Scott

I manage the developers who work on the User Experience of IE – the UI and related infrastructure. I spend most of my time focused on the features “outside the rectangle” of the page the user is browsing, such as Favorites, History, the “Internet Options” dialog, and the like. Essentially...

    The Basics of the IE Testing Matrix

    • 18 Comments
    The information published in this post is now out-of-date. —IEBlog Editor, 20 August 2012 As we recently shipped security update MS04-025, I thought it would be good to talk about the testing coverage that we do for each security update. Testing is about risk management, and we have to make judgments about where to invest heavily in testing and where to invest less in testing to achieve the highest quality IE when we release. Code change is one main driver of this (test where the code is changing...

    How the IE team is organized

    • 11 Comments
    The information published in this post is now out-of-date. —IEBlog Editor, 20 August 2012 As we’ve been posting we’ve been mentioning our titles, but we haven’t really explained what those titles mean or what we do on the IE team, so I thought I’d explain. Like many Microsoft product teams, there are three primary job functions that are dedicated to IE: Development, Test, and Program Management. In addition to these roles, we have key members of our virtual team who are shared with other parts...

    The information published in this post is now out-of-date. —IEBlog Editor, 20 August 2012 The comments system for blogs.msdn.com was recently upgraded and the default was changed to block automatic posting of comments. I have changed it back, which means all comments should show up without having to be published and I also published any comments that were pending. Scott

It’s well worth watching this and all the other videos on Channel 9 which often give an understanding into the motivation behind the projects we undertake.

    IE in Windows XP SP2

    • 174 Comments
    Hi, I’m Tony Chor, the Group Program Manager for the Internet Explorer team. As you may know, we’ve been working hard on IE for Windows XP Service Pack 2, and we signed off on it last week. You can get a very detailed description of the changes on MSDN. (This is lovingly referred to internally as the Book of Springboard – Springboard was the codename for XP SP2.) However, I thought I’d give a high level description of the kinds of changes we made and why. First, as with any project, we set our goals...
