Microsoft’s New Internet Explorer Ad Has No Right To Be This Catchy

I’m a sucker for a catchy song even when the subject matter is a little morose. It explains why I still can’t get Dumb Ways To Die out of my head, and it will probably explain why I’ll start humming the song in this Internet Explorer ad three weeks from now. The song in the video was written and performed …

Microsoft Advertises Do Not Track In Internet Explorer

Microsoft has been one of the strongest proponents of Do Not Track since it announced that Internet Explorer 10 would turn it on by default. Advertisers didn’t exactly like this, and even threatened to ignore all signals from Internet Explorer if Microsoft didn’t back down. Despite the threat, the Redmond giant didn’t back down, and is now even marketing Do …

Is Native WebGL Support Coming To Internet Explorer 11?

For all of its talk of supporting open Web standards, Internet Explorer 10 still lacked one important part of the open Web ecosystem – WebGL. Sure, you could add it with a plugin, but Microsoft refused to add native support while Mozilla and Google do amazing things with it. That all may change, however, with Windows Blue. Fremycompany reports that …

Microsoft’s Latest Internet Explorer 10 Ads Drop The Humor

In the past, Microsoft has been rather witty with its Internet Explorer 10 ads as it continued its self-deprecating “The Browser You Loved To Hate” ad campaign. It didn’t really sell people on the browser, but hey, the ads made us laugh or fondly remember how stupid Pongs were. Unfortunately, the latest ads for Internet Explorer drop this trend of …

Internet Explorer 10 Adoption Slow Going, Still Strong Overall

In a perfect world, everybody who uses Internet Explorer would be on the latest version so all the problems affecting IE8 wouldn’t be happening. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on who you ask, IE10 is only available on Windows 8. That means Microsoft’s latest browser isn’t doing super well in its second month on the market since Windows 8 isn’t doing …

Microsoft Appeals To Your Inner 90s Kid In Latest Internet Explorer Ad

I was born in 1989, and I grew up through the decade that we collectively call the 90s. I think we can all agree it was a weird decade populated by weird fashion, weird music and even weirder cartoons. Alongside all of this, Microsoft is hoping you fondly remember something else. A new ad going out today as part of …

Internet Explorer 10 Is Now Available On Windows 7

Internet Explorer 10 is an interesting beast. It was built with Windows 8, and touch, in mind. It launched with Microsoft’s new operating system last month, but now it’s available on the decidedly less-touch friendly Windows 7. Microsoft announced today that the release preview of Internet Explorer 10 is now available on Windows 7. It features a number of HTML5 …

Microsoft Thinks Internet Explorer 10 Is Perfect For Windows 8

Windows 8 launched at midnight and is now making its way into the hands of early adopters everywhere. Those early adopters, if they’re using Windows RT, are also being exposed to Internet Explorer 10. They don’t have a choice as it’s the only browser available on Windows RT. Even if you’re forced into using it, Microsoft thinks you’re going to …

Online advertisers really hate Microsoft and their stance on “Do Not Track.” The conflict between the two came to a head last week when the advertisers said they were just going to simply ignore the DNT signal in Internet Explorer 10. Now they want you, the regular consumer, to know that DNT is bad for you or the economy. The …

In A Surprise Move, Congress Claims To Care About Your Privacy

Congress has proven time and time again that they don’t care whatsoever about your privacy. These are the same guys that tried to shove CIPSA and CSA through the system without any kind of debate. They claim to have good intentions, but their basic understanding of the Internet is flawed, and at times dangerous. That’s why it’s such a surprise …

This Internet Explorer 9 Commercial Might Be Too Honest

Microsoft has made some decent commercials for its Internet Explorer 9 browser. The latest was an artsy tour-de-force that featured rave reviews from multiple publications praising the browser’s ease of use and beautiful simplicity. What if all that praise was just hyperbole, or worse, paid off? What if the commercial was actually honest about the product it was selling? The …
