IE Woes

Sneaky Toolbar Hijacks Browsers. Move along Mozilla users, move along…


Konqueror Tabs?

Tabbed-Browsing Coming to KDE‘s Konqueror Browser

Incidentally, once the Konqueror tabbed-browsing is fully integrated into the KDE binaries, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) will be the only major browser that does not have tabbed browsing. Wonder if that will have any impact on Internet Explorer’s estimated 90%-95% share of the browser market?

Yes, actually I do wonder… About a lot of things… I’m sure people are wondering about Safari right now as well…


Aqua Data Studio

One more GUI app in the SQL space, Aqua Data Studio:

Aqua Data Studio is a SQL editor and developer tool that allows developers to easily create, edit, and execute SQL scripts, as well as browse database structures.

It’s Java based. I gave it a try, and it does have a number of nice features, but it seems to want to get all the results from a query before returning anything, which made it difficult to use SELECT * FROM FOO on large tables to quickly get a peek at the data…


Upgrade, Downgrade, Goodbye!

I actually came across a page that displayed to me what you see below:

Please Upgrade Your Browser.

Click on a link below to download the latest version of Microsoft Internet Explorer for free
IBM PC Users
Mac Users
Note to 56K modem users: The download will take approximately 1 hour.

To view our site, you will need to upgrade to one of the following browsers:

– Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or above
– Netscape 6 or above

Also, JavaScript must be enabled for this site to display properly.

Click here to use the Old [Name Deleted] Web Site

Cool! I’ll check back in about an hour or so… I suppose I can use the Old site while I’m waiting…

I don’t even think OS2 users would call themselves IBM PC Users.

Note that I’m using Mozilla 1.3a. It’s impossible to ‘upgrade’ to Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or Netscape 6 as those would be considered downgrades.



Happy Birthday Madeline!
