  • Blog Post: Running The IE VPC’s on other VPC Hosts?

    I’ve had a few people email me, or email the IE blog to ask about running the IE VPC’s on other VPC hosts than Microsoft VPC so I figured I’d post this to my blog. I don't think anything has changed in the images since we've started producing them back in 2006. I'm pretty sure they've never worked...

  • Blog Post: Setting X-UA-Compatible with ASP.NET Pages

    I got an email today asking about the best way to go about adding the X-UA-Compatible tags on ASP.NET pages where you’ve got a master page, and may want to over ride the X-UA-Compatible tag in some content pages, but not others. After playing around with it in Visual Studio for a few minutes, I pulled...
  • Blog Post: IE For Developers at Web 2.0 Expo

    Here's the slide deck from my session at Web 2.0 Expo last week. I cut out a few things in order to get it to fit in the 50 minute slot they allotted me, so it's kind of short, if you're looking for full details, check out the deck from Fronteers as it has a bit more detail on things. I did add a...
  • Blog Post: Fronteers Session

    Here's the deck that I presented today at Fronteers 2008. Seems like people got something out of it, and was told by a couple of people that "wow, I have nothing to complain about any more"! Love it!
  • Blog Post: I'm Back!

    <pokes head above blog wall> <moves some cob webs aside> hello! i'm back. :) a couple of months ago, I did an interview with Craig shoemaker about one of the session I did at TechEd this year, and he posted the interview a few weeks ago. I figured this would be a good place to start...
  • Blog Post: IE VPC's - Which Ones Next?

    Apologies for going dark the last little while, I'm going to do my best to change that again. Lots of stuff going on here that I'm really excited about, but before I get into that, I want to do an unscientific survey. We currently offer developers and designers the following VPC images: XP ...

  • Blog Post: I'm not going to Click To Activate anymore (soon)

  • Blog Post: UPS Package Tracking In Your IE7 Search Bar

    Confession time, I'm an online shopping addict. Amazon and I get along really well. Well, Amazon and my bank account don't get along well, but Amazon and I do. Along with many other online stores, I tend to do a good bit of shopping online. This morning, I got a tracking notification for a package that...
  • Blog Post: IE7 Installation Update

    It's crazy to me that I've been in this new role for just over a year now, in fact, it's just about 13 months. In that time, I've seen IE7 ship, taken on new products like Expression Web and Visual Web Developer, met so many fantastic developers and designers and have had the awesome opportunity to travel...
  • Blog Post: Free Windows Based Hosting

    Whew, I'm back from my 17 day cruise in the Mediterranian and while it's good to be back, I sure missed a lot! I'm still trying to get things sorted, but in the mean time I figured I'd share this little juicy bit with you. Verio is offering free Windows based hosting for anyone who wants it! They...
  • Blog Post: IE VPC Images

    Just a quick note to let everyone know the IE VPC images will be coming VERY shortly. Since this is the first time I've had someone else create them, it's taken a little longer than I expected it to. I hope to have the images online sometime tomorrow, and I'll post once they're up both here and on...
  • Blog Post: VWD Beta2, Web Developer Tools, IE VPC

    So as it turns out, it's been a while since I last posted. Things have been a little nutty around here. We just finished our fiscal year, and have started planning for our next fiscal year. It's been really exciting, lots of cool stuff happening around the next version of IE, planning for Expression...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Implementing Rich UI For Web Applications

    In Amsterdam at ReMIX, I presented "Implementing Rich UI for Web Applications" where I showed how to deliver richly interactive web experiences with animation, video and more using Silverlight and Expression. It was based on a session from MIX07 by Joe Stegman titled " Building Rich Web Experiences using...
  • Blog Post: Web Blunders: The Top 5 Biggest Mistakes On The Web

    At TechEd this year, I presented a session where I presented my top five pet peeves on the web, the biggest and easiest problems to avoid on the web. With how easy it is to share content on the web, I felt that these top five things were the best and easiest to get rid of. In order, I felt they were...
  • Blog Post: reMIX 07 and serEstandar.es

    With MIX07 just behind us, there are some fun events coming up in Europe, Asia and else where in the world. REMIX 07 is an opportunity to for people who didn't or couldn't make it to Vegas to see some of the great sessions and events that took place at MIX. But what I like about reMIX is that I get...
  • Blog Post: MIX07 Recap (It's Over)

    Wow, just wow, that's all I really need to say. MIX07 was insane, an absolute great time, and some fantastic new stuff coming out from Microsoft for the web. So what were the highlights, for me it came down to three things, first the announcements around Silverlight, second was all the great sharing...

  • Blog Post: IE7 VPC Image and IE6 VPC Image Refresh

    Cross posted from the IE Blog Hello! Just wanted to give you a quick update that we’ve dropped two new VPC images that you can use with the free copy of Virtual PC 2007 . The first is a refresh of the Windows XP SP2 + IE6 image . A few people were encountering a non-genuine Windows warning from...
  • Blog Post: One Way to Level the Layout Playing Field

    One of my pet peeves about CSS and HTML standards is sometimes, they aren't overly explicit, and browser vendors pick arbitrary values for things like line height, or margin or padding and the like. Eric Meyer has talked about a reset.css stylesheet that would effectively eliminate those differences...
  • Blog Post: IE Public Bug Database - Connect

    I've been following the comments over on the IE blog about Molly's post, particularly the comments of Chris Beall, thacker and steve_web, and I figured I'd post a bit of a follow up to what they were saying and ask for feedback from the community. In the IE7 timeframe, with the connect database open...
