  • 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)

    Phew. I've been pretty heads down the last month on a couple of different projects, and one of the biggers ones just went live today! This morning, I posted an item to the IE blog announcing that we're removing click to activate from Internet Explorer! The first "preview" patch will be available in early...
  • 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: 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: 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: 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: Favorite Web Development And Design References

    While at lunch today, we got on to the conversation of web design and web development resources. I have sitting on my desk at all times, well, unless I'm using them at home: Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide by Eric Meyer Web Standards Solutions: The Markup and Style Handbook by Dan Cederholm...
  • 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...
  • Blog Post: IE6 VPC & IE7 VPC

    We've seen a few reports of people having problems with the recently released IE6 VPC image. At first I thought it was because people were running the image on non-Microsoft virtualization software, which causes the image to be invalidated. But, I got a report internally from someone who confirmed they...
  • Blog Post: IE6 VPC Refresh

    Cross-posted from the IE Blog In my original blog post about releasing the IE6 Virtual PC Image, we mentioned that it would expire on April 1st, 2007 (no, it wasn’t an April Fool’s joke), and that we’d be releasing a new VPC image to replace it sometime in March. Well, I’m happy to report that I propped...

  • Blog Post: IE6 VPC (An Update)

    Just a quick update to let you know the work for the IE6 VPC has been mostly completed. We're down to the last few steps, and I hope to have it out by the end of the week. Before we release it, I'll be testing it on the PC, and I also want to test it on VPC for the Mac, as I heard a few people say...
  • Blog Post: IE, Firefox and Opera On Stage Together

    I often forget to blog about some of the cool events I attend until it's a little too late, but hey, better than blogging about it after the fact, when people can't even try to show up right? Tomorrow, Chris Wilson and I are headed down to San Jose for an event put on by the Silicon Valley Web Builders...
  • Blog Post: The Countdown To Mix07 Has Started!

    Cross-posted from the IE Blog I can’t believe it’s already been almost a year since MIX06 , and the countdown for MIX07 has started. With 63 days until MIX07 starts, and the early bird discount still available, now is the time to register ! While the list of sessions is still being finalized, the IE...
  • Blog Post: JavaScript Expert? We're looking for a few to help!

    One of the great things I love about my job is the ability to help make the lives of Developers easier, seeing things change and helping others to get the tools and resources they need to get shit done, to put it bluntly. I've spent the last few days talking to the PUM (product unit manager) of the...
  • Blog Post: Generating OPML's with the RSS Platform

    Just before I headed up to Web Directions North, I wrote a little chunk of code to help me do a system back up. Enough people at work have been losing data on their hard disks, so I decided I wasn't going to have that happen to me. I picked up a NAS storage device, 2 500gig hard drives, and got it all...
  • Blog Post: Up At Web Directions North

    This has been a pretty great few days up here in Vancouver at Web Directions North. It's been fantastic to connect with so many of you, to get to meet some great people, and hear some good, honest feedback. I think that biggest comment that I've walked away with so far (and we've still got a day to...
