    Standards and CSS in IE

    • 705 Comments
    I’m very happy that we’ve shipped IE 7 beta 1. I wanted to make it clear that we know Beta 1 makes little progress for web developers in improving our standards support, particularly in our CSS implementation. I feel badly about this, but we have been focused on how to get the most done overall for IE7, so due to our lead time for locking down beta releases and ramping up our team, we could not get a whole lot done in the platform in beta 1. However, I know this will be better in...

    Windows Vista & IE7 Beta 1 Available

    The information published in this post is now out-of-date and one or more links are invalid. —IEBlog Editor, 21 August 2012 Beta versions of both Windows Vista (formerly codenamed “Longhorn”) and IE7 for Windows XP are now available. Back in February we committed to releasing betas this summer. I’m sure it surprises some people, but we did what we said we’d do. How interested you are in actually running pre-release software should depend on who you are. For example, I think that...

    Make printing work better with the Web

    • 94 Comments
    As promised , I want to talk today a little bit more about printing experience in IE7. Printing is after navigation/search one of the most used features but it still lacks the fidelity of like say a photo printing program. Why is that? Content for the Web is in general not designed for printing. If laid out at 100% it generally exceeds the space provided on the paper. In IE6, for example, you end up often with cut-off right margins. Another very common problem when printing for example...

    Toolbars in IE7 Beta 1

    • 114 Comments
    Yesterday, rumors were circulating stating that the IE 7 beta 1 release causes the Google and Yahoo! toolbars to vanish. As Dean stated in Scoble’s blog , we support Google’s and Yahoo’s (and anyone else’s) toolbar in Beta 1 and will do so in the final release. In our internal testing, we have not encountered these problems in the released version of IE 7 tech beta. (There was a bug like this in earlier builds, so it’s possible that the report came from someone who had access to our pre-beta builds...

    The information published in this post is now out-of-date. —IEBlog Editor, 21 August 2012 The IE team took some time recently to relax in the sun (well actually rain – we do live in Seattle). Here is a picture of the unflappable Dave Massy and Jean Hartmann in Dave’s incredible motoring machine enjoying themselves at the event. Note that the color of Dave’s car is a variation of IE blue. - Scott Stearns

    Art Manion’s CNET piece on Security

    • 84 Comments
    The information published in this post is now out-of-date. —IEBlog Editor, 12 September 2012 I just read Art Manion’s perspectives piece on cnet . I agree with much of what he says and encourage anyone who cares about browsers, security, or both, to read it. A few months ago, I offered my opinion on this topic. We’re still open to feedback on this. We’re getting a lot of it, privately, as we work closely with and listen to many security experts as we build IE7. As Art says, Windows...

Why? We think that RSS is becoming a critical tool for businesses to communicate with customers and we want that to happen even faster. Robert will talk about how businesses can use RSS to create strong, ongoing connections with their customers. I’ll talk...

    IE Team at Black Hat 2005

    • 25 Comments
    Hi, I’m Patrick Mann , a security tester on the IE team. It’s a big week for me and a few other folks from IE, as we head down to Las Vegas to attend Black Hat 2005. Expect to see some of the IE blog familiars (such as John Bedworth , Eric Lawrence , and Christopher Vaughan ) along with other members of the IE product team. Personally, I’m very excited at this opportunity to hear about the latest in security research. But above all I’m looking forward to meeting folks, and putting some faces...
