Safari 4 – IE EU Ruling

Safari Web Site

I didn’t even know that a new version of Safari was coming out, way below the radar on this one. Looks like they’ve pared it down much like the Google Chrome browser, with some more classic Mac style visual interfaces for browsing history, favourites and tabs.

In other browser news: “Microsoft to Offer Competing Browsers in Windows?

The latest European Commission ruling could force Microsoft to offer alternative web browsers within Windows so the computer giant avoids breaching EU competition rules. According to the Commission, Microsoft are exploiting their dominant position to constrain the web browser market.

I couldn’t agree more, they’ve already been made to unbundle their media player from the Operating System and I think this is a positive move for browser advancement.

Death to IE 6

Death to IE 6

Got an email from iStockphoto today saying they are withdrawing support for Internet Explorer 6 from 2010. This reminded me of a statement I read from 37signals some months ago that they were phasing out support for Internet Explorer 6.

I read this initial article with much interest as this browser causes me an enormous amount of stress, unbelievably however, it still has a market share of around 20%, although I wouldn’t be surprised if half of that is developers and designers looking at page views over and over until they’ve fixed a problem.
