[News] Chrome Scares Microsoft, Puts it to Shame

Hash: SHA1

Look out IE, Firefox, Chrome is getting much better

| As these changes mature, I really believe that Chrome is poised to become a 
| major Web browser player by year's end. If you don't believe me, maybe you'll 
| believe Microsoft. The Evil Empire is currently trying to convince the 
| European Union that if they have to bundle Chrome with Windows in Europe, 
| Google and Chrome will grab a monopoly-sized share of the Internet. Not bad 
| for a Web browser that has less than a 1% market share at the moment eh?      


Microsoft's JavaScript strategy hurting IE 8?

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft's focus on selected improvements in Internet Explorer's handling of 
| Javascript has cost its latest browser in the race against competitors. 
| Internet Explorer 8 is ninth in a list of 10 browsers that have been tested 
| for speed, with the previous version of Microsoft's browser - IE 7 - coming 
| last. This list arrives from 3D-graphics specialist Futuremark.  



Surprise, the fastest browser on Windows is in fact….

| Google Chrome 2.0.180 is 376% faster than IE 8
| Chrome 1.0 is 326% faster than IE 8
| Safari 3.23 is 273% faster than IE 8
| Opera 10’s May 13 weekly build is 247% faster than IE 8
| Firefox 3.5 Beta 4 is 224% faster than IE 8
| Opera 9.64 is 179% faster than IE 8
| Firefox 3.0.10 is 149% faster than IE 8
| On a technical level, IE is competing with Firefox 2 for speed and Firefox
| 1.0 for standards support.


IP Internet Explorer: 1995-2021

| Some of us in the web community really wish Internet Explorer would die. It
| makes web designers’ lives a pain, and it makes users’ computers less secure.
| So you might be glad to know that Internet Explorer is dying: really, really,
| really slowly.



A couple things I forgot to mention about IE 8, no strong encryption for you.

| It seems that in an effort to hawk Vista, 2008, and 7 off as “more secure”,
| Microsoft bumped Internet Explorer up to support for 256-bit AES encryption…
| sites like Newegg and most banks now support logging in with this and it
| should be pretty much impossible to crack (barring some horrible
| vulnerability discovered in it obviously).
| But Microsoft is still refusing to upgrade the cryptography engine of IE 8
| for XP/2003 and users of these systems are stuck with the older 128-bit
| encryption.
| The problem with this of course is that computing power has increased a lot
| since 2001 and even such novel things as using GPU (graphics processing
| units) to run extremely complex calculations is now possible. Obviously
| 128-bit is starting to seem a little weak.
