Web Stuff: IE8, IE7 And Windows XP SP3

IE8: Even if you are an Apple, Linux or non Microsoft fanboy you have to admit that even when MS tries to get it right someone out there will say they got it wrong. Take this Standards thingy with IE8. To make things easier the plan was to let it render IE7 as a default because the cry from the net would be herendous for those who would have to go back and make their work all IE8 friendly. So what happened? The cry went up from the net that MS wasn't going through with Standards Compliance after all. There goes that I guess. Well I hope they like recoding because as the Rolling Stones have told me in so many TV commercials for luxury cars "You can't always get what you want". Learn more about IE8 Beta 2 at the link below.

IE7: Thinking about waiting on Internet Explorer 8? It looks like you may be just fine with IE7 on XP according to Ars Technica.

Windows XP Service Pack 3: How about ignoring both IE7 and IE8. No not Firefox. I'm talking IE6. Here is an email I recently received from Jim.

"Hay Ranger,
Normally I don't go asking somebody questions about everything and
anything, I go look for it, but in this particular case I wondered if
it might be a lot more efficient if you happen to know the answer?
Can one install win XP service pack 3 without it resulting in IE 7
being installed? Currently I still use JAWS 7 on this machine and I
know I could upgrade to JAWS 7.1 and have IE 7 support to whatever
degree it is with that version, but I don't want to deal with that and
losing my current IE custom security settings and having to get use to
/ put up with stuff... I know, maybe I should do it anyway, but in
any case do you know if it is possible not to?

Jim"

Thank you for your question Jim. I'm sure you are not alone on this one. And here is your answer straight from the Microsoft overview for Windows XP SP3.



Quote: Microsoft is not adding significant functionality from newer versions of Windows, such as Windows Vista, to Windows XP through XP SP3. For instance, Windows XP SP3 does not include Windows Internet Explorer 7, although Windows XP SP3 does include updates to both Internet Explorer 6 and Internet Explorer 7, and it will update whichever version is installed on the computer. For more information about Internet Explorer 7, visit http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/ie/default.mspx.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
