                                  First Look: Internet Explorer 8 Is Microsoft’s First Truly Modern Browser

                                  First Look: Internet Explorer 8 Is Microsoft s First Truly Modern Browser

                                  Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 on the Windows XP desktop.

                                  The most popular web browser in the world has been reborn.

                                  Microsoft made the latest version of Internet Explorer available as a free download Thursday. You can grab Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista or Windows XP (but not Windows 7) at microsoft.com/ie8 .

                                  IE8 has been in development for several months. If you ve been using the pre-release betas or the most recent release candidate, then today s release won t be all that new to your eyes. Aside from some minor tweaks, the code is very much the same as what s been publicly available for almost half a year.

                                  However, if you re coming to this release with fresh eyes, upgrading from Internet Explorer 7 or (heaven forbid) Internet Explorer 6, then you ll notice huge improvements across the board.

                                  Internet Explorer 8 is a thoroughly modern browser. Most significantly, it has been engineered to improve the performance of web applications. As more of our productivity tasks are moving off the desktop and into web apps like Gmail and Google Docs, this is an essential next step in the evolution of every browser. In our testing of pre-release versions of IE8, we noticed significant improvements to Ajax-heavy web apps like Gmail and Flickr. Performance on JavaScript-heavy pages like those has stayed consistent in the final version.

                                  The new browser also contains each webapp in its own tab, so if one site crashes, it just crashes the tab instead of bringing the entire browser down with it.

                                  Microsoft has improved its support for web standards to a point, choosing to support CSS up to version 2.1. Support for CSS 3 is minimal, with only vertical text making the cut. Support for SVG, rounded corners, audio and video tags and other proposed standards are penciled in for future versions .

                                  Search is central to the experience, as it should be. IE8 has a smart address bar — start typing a URL and a drop-down offers suggested destinations from your recent history, favorites and feeds. The search box also returns preliminary results as you type. Any website can build a plug-in search engine that gives richer results, complete with thumbnail images, snippets of text and page descriptions. IE8 arrives with options to install such smart engines for Amazon, The New York Times and Wikipedia with a few clicks.

                                  There s a private browsing mode and new protections against scripting attacks. A feature called Accelerators extends the semantic web by providing context-sensitive commands in when you right-click on different page elements. Highlight some text and right-click, for example, and you re given options to Blog this or Search for this or Translate this.


                                  Users upgrading from previous versions of IE are going to be pleased. There are bunches of little things, like new bookmark manager and the ability to isolate and print a specific part of any page, that are just added niceties. But it s the five S s — speed, stability, security, standards and search — that are the most important enhancements.

                                  If you re a devotee of any other browser, you re probably groaning yourself silly right now, and with good reason. Mozilla s open source Firefox browser has long been ahead of the curve on many of these features, like the smart address bar and the security protections. Opera is way ahead on emerging standards like CSS 3 and HTML 5. Google Chrome upped the ante with private browsing mode (aka porn mode ) and isolated web apps within tabs.

                                  And IE8 is faster than IE7, but it s not the fastest. We haven t done any controlled speed tests, but Chrome and the latest beta of Firefox (3.1 beta 3) on Windows are both clearly faster at rendering the Wired.com, Ars Technica and Digg front pages than IE8.

                                  But since somewhere between 60 percent and 75 percent of the web still uses IE, upgrading those users will be an advancement for the web as a whole. A better IE, even if it s not as bleeding-edge as other browsers, is a good thing for everyone.

                                  It s a manual download right now, but IE8 will be pushed out to all Windows users running Windows Updater later this spring. There s also an IE8 update blocker available for controlled environments.

                                  This release of IE8 is only for Windows Vista and Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later. Windows 7 beta testers can t download the new code. Instead, they ll get their own, Win7-optimized version of IE8 when the new OS arrives later this year.

                                  Word to the wise: Installing IE 8 on Windows XP is a huge test of patience. After downloading the installer, you ll be asked to verify Windows through Windows Genuine Advantage, then install additional components and numerous updates, then reboot, then check for malicious software, then install more updates, then reboot again. The whole time, you re never shown a progress bar, told where you are in the process or given any indication of how much longer the installation might take. Expect the full installation to take as long as 30 painful minutes.

                                  IE8 may be a whole new bag, but some things never change.

                                  Berlin Fashion Week (I): Minimalism and Futurism

                                  From pure lines and simple shapes to flamboyant styles, Berlin proved to be, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. a strong candidate for the title of ultimate fashion capital .

                                  Berlin Fashion Week started on Thursday, July 17 with a presentation of the HUGO collection for Spring/Summer 2009 that struck a minimalist note. Belgian designer Bruno Pieters presented his second collection for the well-known German brand.

                                  The collection was inspired by Berlin s 1920s architecture and art featuring structural lines and new takes on classic shapes. such as the shift dress and the men s-wardrobe-borrowed tuxedo. Basic black and white, neutral beige and dark blue enhance those severe cuts which, along with flirty short hemlines, illustrate HUGO philosophy: understated, unconventional, fashion forward style.

                                  Another minimalism ‘spokesperson is Kai Kühne, former AsFour design partner. The German designer mixes classical shapes with a sophisticated avant-garde flair that reflects his artistic sensitivity. After all, Kai studied fashion photography and art history along with fashion design and business.

                                  Muted shades, glossy fabrics, slinky leather, body conscious silhouettes, strong shoulders; Kai Kühne spring 2009 collection achieves a modern elegance enrolled in the Futurama trend, best described by those chic little black dresses.

                                  Young Berlin-based designer Bernadett Penkov (born Budapest) makes white look extremely Sci-Fi. She incorporated decorative body amour into her clothing, designed in collaboration with The Royal Porcelain Manufactory Berlin KPM.

                                  Porcelain shoulders and necklaces give a futuristic warrior-look to delicate tulle and lace teamed with white gladiator heels and mountain boots. In today s fashion world when ‘young designer doesn t say much, innovative fashion labels such as Penkov know that their chance is a strong, individual look.

                                  What’s in a CUSIP?

                                  Universally recognized identifier for financial instruments.

                                  CUSIPs are 9-character identifiers that capture an issue’s important differentiating characteristics within a common structure.

                                  CGS provides a 9-character standard CUSIP identifier for issuers and their financial instruments offered in the U.S. and Canada

                                  Example: Amazon.com Inc – Common Stock

                                  What’s in a CGS CINS?

                                  CUSIP International Numbering System.

                                  CGS CINS is a 9-character alphanumeric identifier that employs the same 9 characters as CUSIP, but also contains a letter of the alphabet in the first position signifying the issuer’s country or geographic region. CGS CINS was developed in 1989 as an extension to CUSIP in response to U.S. demand for global coverage, and is the local identifier of more than 30 non-North American markets.

                                  CGS provides a 9-character standard CGS CINS identifier for more than 30 non-North American issuers and their financial instruments

                                  Example: Abingdon Capital PLC – Shares

                                  What’s in a CGS ISIN?

                                  Participation in the assignment of CGS International Securities Identification Numbers.

                                  A CGS ISIN is a unique global code that identifies instruments to facilitate cross-border trading. There are currently 78 recognized National Numbering Agencies (NNAs) throughout the world which are responsible for the assignment of ISINs in their respective countries. CGS is responsible for the assignment of ISINs in the U.S. and in other areas where designated or appointed.

                                  CGS has agents in countries such as Canada, Bermuda, The Cayman Islands and Jamaica and is also the representative agency for countries in South America. Because of this, it was necessary to develop a separate identification system to designate CGS-assigned securities from these jurisdictions. A CUSIP or CGS CINS identifier will always be in position 3 to 11 of a CGS ISIN.

                                  A global uniform unique code that identifies instruments to facilitate cross-border trading

                                  Example: Amazon.com Inc – Common Stock

                                  ISO rules govern designation of the ISO Country Code:

                                  For Equity Issues: the country where the entity is incorporated.
                                  For Domestic Debt Issues: the country where the lead manager is located.
                                  For International Debt Issues: the country where the Central Securities Depository is located.

                                  The Local Identifier is assigned by the individual NNA.

                                  Example: Amazon.com Inc – Common Stock

                                  Example: Air Canada Inc – Class A Shares

                                  Example: Cable and Wireless Jamaica Limited – Shares

                                  What’s in a CABRE?

                                  CABRE is a combined effort by CGS and DTCC/Avox to provide a universal identification system for global business entities.

                                  The CABRE Directory uses a new standard code to identify issuers, obligors and counterparties and on a global basis.

                                  An acronym for CUSIP Avox Business Reference Entity identifier, CABRE has been designed to address market need for the lack of an accepted universal identification system.

                                  With regulatory oversight continuing to focus on single-name exposure and the need to identify issuers, obligors and counterparties, interest in the CABRE identifier has dramatically increased since CGS and DTCC/Avox announced their partnership in 2009. The financial industry recognizes CGS’ extensive classification expertise and the value of DTCC/Avox’s validation processes and methodology.

                                  The CABRE identifier has been designed as a 10-character code that contains the 2-character ISO domicile code based on the location of the entity and embeds the CUSIP issuer number, when available. The service is offered to global market participants in either a bulk-file or portfolio format. The goal for CGS and DTCC/Avox is to identify every institution involved in the lifecycle of a financial instrument.

                                  The availability of a CABRE for each entity location helps clients manage diverse areas of their organizations, such as financial controls, risk management, anti-money laundering and operations.

                                  First Look: Internet Explorer 8 Is Microsoft s First Truly Modern Browser

                                  Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 on the Windows XP desktop.

                                  The most popular web browser in the world has been reborn.

                                  Microsoft made the latest version of Internet Explorer available as a free download Thursday. You can grab Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista or Windows XP (but not Windows 7) at microsoft.com/ie8 .

                                  IE8 has been in development for several months. If you ve been using the pre-release betas or the most recent release candidate, then today s release won t be all that new to your eyes. Aside from some minor tweaks, the code is very much the same as what s been publicly available for almost half a year.

                                  However, if you re coming to this release with fresh eyes, upgrading from Internet Explorer 7 or (heaven forbid) Internet Explorer 6, then you ll notice huge improvements across the board.

                                  Internet Explorer 8 is a thoroughly modern browser. Most significantly, it has been engineered to improve the performance of web applications. As more of our productivity tasks are moving off the desktop and into web apps like Gmail and Google Docs, this is an essential next step in the evolution of every browser. In our testing of pre-release versions of IE8, we noticed significant improvements to Ajax-heavy web apps like Gmail and Flickr. Performance on JavaScript-heavy pages like those has stayed consistent in the final version.

                                  The new browser also contains each webapp in its own tab, so if one site crashes, it just crashes the tab instead of bringing the entire browser down with it.

                                  Microsoft has improved its support for web standards to a point, choosing to support CSS up to version 2.1. Support for CSS 3 is minimal, with only vertical text making the cut. Support for SVG, rounded corners, audio and video tags and other proposed standards are penciled in for future versions .

                                  Search is central to the experience, as it should be. IE8 has a smart address bar — start typing a URL and a drop-down offers suggested destinations from your recent history, favorites and feeds. The search box also returns preliminary results as you type. Any website can build a plug-in search engine that gives richer results, complete with thumbnail images, snippets of text and page descriptions. IE8 arrives with options to install such smart engines for Amazon, The New York Times and Wikipedia with a few clicks.

                                  There s a private browsing mode and new protections against scripting attacks. A feature called Accelerators extends the semantic web by providing context-sensitive commands in when you right-click on different page elements. Highlight some text and right-click, for example, and you re given options to Blog this or Search for this or Translate this.


                                  Users upgrading from previous versions of IE are going to be pleased. There are bunches of little things, like new bookmark manager and the ability to isolate and print a specific part of any page, that are just added niceties. But it s the five S s — speed, stability, security, standards and search — that are the most important enhancements.

                                  If you re a devotee of any other browser, you re probably groaning yourself silly right now, and with good reason. Mozilla s open source Firefox browser has long been ahead of the curve on many of these features, like the smart address bar and the security protections. Opera is way ahead on emerging standards like CSS 3 and HTML 5. Google Chrome upped the ante with private browsing mode (aka porn mode ) and isolated web apps within tabs.

                                  And IE8 is faster than IE7, but it s not the fastest. We haven t done any controlled speed tests, but Chrome and the latest beta of Firefox (3.1 beta 3) on Windows are both clearly faster at rendering the Wired.com, Ars Technica and Digg front pages than IE8.

                                  But since somewhere between 60 percent and 75 percent of the web still uses IE, upgrading those users will be an advancement for the web as a whole. A better IE, even if it s not as bleeding-edge as other browsers, is a good thing for everyone.

                                  It s a manual download right now, but IE8 will be pushed out to all Windows users running Windows Updater later this spring. There s also an IE8 update blocker available for controlled environments.

                                  This release of IE8 is only for Windows Vista and Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later. Windows 7 beta testers can t download the new code. Instead, they ll get their own, Win7-optimized version of IE8 when the new OS arrives later this year.

                                  Word to the wise: Installing IE 8 on Windows XP is a huge test of patience. After downloading the installer, you ll be asked to verify Windows through Windows Genuine Advantage, then install additional components and numerous updates, then reboot, then check for malicious software, then install more updates, then reboot again. The whole time, you re never shown a progress bar, told where you are in the process or given any indication of how much longer the installation might take. Expect the full installation to take as long as 30 painful minutes.

                                  IE8 may be a whole new bag, but some things never change.

IE8 arrives with options to install such smart engines for Amazon, The New York Times and Wikipedia with a few clicks.

                                  There s a private browsing mode and new protections against scripting attacks. A feature called Accelerators extends the semantic web by providing context-sensitive commands in when you right-click on different page elements. Highlight some text and right-click, for example, and you re given options to Blog this or Search for this or Translate this.


                                  Users upgrading from previous versions of IE are going to be pleased. There are bunches of little things, like new bookmark manager and the ability to isolate and print a specific part of any page, that are just added niceties. But it s the five S s — speed, stability, security, standards and search — that are the most important enhancements.

                                  If you re a devotee of any other browser, you re probably groaning yourself silly right now, and with good reason. Mozilla s open source Firefox browser has long been ahead of the curve on many of these features, like the smart address bar and the security protections. Opera is way ahead on emerging standards like CSS 3 and HTML 5. Google Chrome upped the ante with private browsing mode (aka porn mode ) and isolated web apps within tabs.

                                  And IE8 is faster than IE7, but it s not the fastest. We haven t done any controlled speed tests, but Chrome and the latest beta of Firefox (3.1 beta 3) on Windows are both clearly faster at rendering the Wired.com, Ars Technica and Digg front pages than IE8.

                                  But since somewhere between 60 percent and 75 percent of the web still uses IE, upgrading those users will be an advancement for the web as a whole. A better IE, even if it s not as bleeding-edge as other browsers, is a good thing for everyone.

                                  It s a manual download right now, but IE8 will be pushed out to all Windows users running Windows Updater later this spring. There s also an IE8 update blocker available for controlled environments.

                                  This release of IE8 is only for Windows Vista and Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later. Windows 7 beta testers can t download the new code. Instead, they ll get their own, Win7-optimized version of IE8 when the new OS arrives later this year.

                                  Word to the wise: Installing IE 8 on Windows XP is a huge test of patience. After downloading the installer, you ll be asked to verify Windows through Windows Genuine Advantage, then install additional components and numerous updates, then reboot, then check for malicious software, then install more updates, then reboot again. The whole time, you re never shown a progress bar, told where you are in the process or given any indication of how much longer the installation might take. Expect the full installation to take as long as 30 painful minutes.

                                  IE8 may be a whole new bag, but some things never change.

                                  First Look: Internet Explorer 8 Is Microsoft s First Truly Modern Browser

                                  Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 on the Windows XP desktop.

                                  The most popular web browser in the world has been reborn.

                                  Microsoft made the latest version of Internet Explorer available as a free download Thursday. You can grab Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista or Windows XP (but not Windows 7) at microsoft.com/ie8 .

                                  IE8 has been in development for several months. If you ve been using the pre-release betas or the most recent release candidate, then today s release won t be all that new to your eyes. Aside from some minor tweaks, the code is very much the same as what s been publicly available for almost half a year.

                                  However, if you re coming to this release with fresh eyes, upgrading from Internet Explorer 7 or (heaven forbid) Internet Explorer 6, then you ll notice huge improvements across the board.

                                  Internet Explorer 8 is a thoroughly modern browser. Most significantly, it has been engineered to improve the performance of web applications. As more of our productivity tasks are moving off the desktop and into web apps like Gmail and Google Docs, this is an essential next step in the evolution of every browser. In our testing of pre-release versions of IE8, we noticed significant improvements to Ajax-heavy web apps like Gmail and Flickr. Performance on JavaScript-heavy pages like those has stayed consistent in the final version.

                                  The new browser also contains each webapp in its own tab, so if one site crashes, it just crashes the tab instead of bringing the entire browser down with it.

                                  Microsoft has improved its support for web standards to a point, choosing to support CSS up to version 2.1. Support for CSS 3 is minimal, with only vertical text making the cut. Support for SVG, rounded corners, audio and video tags and other proposed standards are penciled in for future versions .

                                  Search is central to the experience, as it should be. IE8 has a smart address bar — start typing a URL and a drop-down offers suggested destinations from your recent history, favorites and feeds. The search box also returns preliminary results as you type. Any website can build a plug-in search engine that gives richer results, complete with thumbnail images, snippets of text and page descriptions. IE8 arrives with options to install such smart engines for Amazon, The New York Times and Wikipedia with a few clicks.

                                  There s a private browsing mode and new protections against scripting attacks. A feature called Accelerators extends the semantic web by providing context-sensitive commands in when you right-click on different page elements. Highlight some text and right-click, for example, and you re given options to Blog this or Search for this or Translate this.


                                  Users upgrading from previous versions of IE are going to be pleased. There are bunches of little things, like new bookmark manager and the ability to isolate and print a specific part of any page, that are just added niceties. But it s the five S s — speed, stability, security, standards and search — that are the most important enhancements.
