    Ok…today I’m posting after a really long time. My exams end on 24th of this month and then I’ll start regular posting. Thank you for your patience.

    I had to use my PC yesterday to check on my projects when I saw the tiny windows update icon in the notification area –


    I was not surprised to see Internet Explorer 8. Now, I’ve not got any problem with Internet Explorer, I just ignore it. My problem is the way it is being pushed to users, it is silently downloaded without users knowledge. Many users are barely getting used to IE7 and here comes IE8. Users should be given the option to update like Firefox. people are usually not even aware of the version of Internet Explorer they are using. This might cause Microsoft some trouble from the EC.

    Anyway… Internet Explorer is a good browser, at least better than IE7 or IE6. So now that you’ve downloaded it, use it and tell me if you like it or not.

    If you didn’t like it Microsoft has made it fairly simple to remove Internet Explorer 8 .


    HydraBrowser is a web browser based on Internet Explorer, which means it will user whatever version of Internet Explorer you’ve got installed on your PC as its rendering engine. But the thing that’s worth noting the the exhaustive list of fretures —

    internet_document.png Tabbed browsing – just like you used to in Opera, Firefox and IE7 (well, it’s very useful, right?)
    blue_atom.png Multiple web sites organized into Presets and opened with a single mouse click (Favorites on steroids…)
    iconexplorer.png Customizable Power search – define your own search providers and search multiple sites at once – set it and forget it! (record your search as a macro, much like in Office programs…)
    firewall.png Customizable ads and popup blocker, as well as phishing filter (Everyone seems to have one, so I built it in…)
    trashempty.png Clear your tracks – view and delete your browsing history, cookies and temporary files – leave no trace behind (…and now the famous guitar riff from Paranoid, can you picture it… anyways, you’re safe from your wife, but the Feds will get to you eventually …)
    text_edit.png Automated logins – record your logins, protect them with a master password and put them in a preset – open all of your login sites with just one click (this one REALLY saves time…)
    mouse.png Support for mouse gestures (cute, but…)
    computer.png Sidebars for web 2.0 sites, and a bunch of funny gadgets to open in a sidebar and have fun while browsing the Net (and that’s fun, it really is…)
    mydocuments.pngForm filler – save your forms and profiles, and let Hydra fill those boring fields for you (at least it tries to…)
    all_software_is_current.png Tons of different bookmarklets to make your browsing experience richer – you can even automate them to achieve GreaseMonkey lookalike effect (don’t exagerrate with these…)
    administrative_tool.png Limited support for Greasemonkey scripts (meaning, what works with IE is built right in…)
    favourite.png Organize your favorites into categories and groups, import favorites from IE and give them new allure (the last phrase added just because it sounds soooo marketingly – and I’m positive that there’s no marketingly in English language, though it should be by now…)
    idiskutility.png Extract links and images from web pages with a single click of a mouse, or you might extract absolutely everything from the page you’re looking at and save the files on your disk separately or as mht archive!
    textedit.pngIntegrated RSS reader saves your feeds into a database and lets you read your favorite news more comfortably(I like RSS, and it’s going to get better and better…)
    bootskins_icon.png Customizable RSS viewer – edit a simple HTML template and enjoy reading news your way (little work for you too…)
    download.png Full fledged Download manager built right into your browser (well, to be honest, it needs to be improved a bit, but basically it works 😉
    stereo.png Listen to your favorite Radio station at the same time you’re browsing the web, or simply pick one of the few hundred stations allready built into the software (if that doesn’t sounds like fun, man, I don’t know…).

    Dose’t it look like Microsoft Word 2007?

    I think everyone has come across this. Every browser brand had been discussing at length about this. Some are saying users have to be careful and not browsers that attack is on people and not on technology but (no offense meant) these guys forget that technology is meant to protect us. Phishing is very simple these and not everyone are experts to understand the complicated certificates or URI specification. So there should be browsers that simplify this work for the common user. Firefox saved me two times from phishing.  So guys protect yourself from phishing. Even if you are a die hard fan of Safari, use Firefox or IE till Safari is declared safe.
