IE Users Angry Over Accusation Of Having Low IQ

AptiQuant is the research firm behind the survey from which they inferred that Internet Explorer users are usually dumb and have low IQ levels when compared to Chrome, Mozilla or Safari users.

This is a highly profane statement regarding IE users which have led them to a fury against the consulting company. Since the release of study results, IE users have threatened to file a law suit against the company and have sent hate mails to the company. The company performed more than 100,000 IQ tests and compiled the results on the bases of browser a user used.

Chrome 13 Features Instant Pages & Print Preview

With surveys declaring IE users dumb and of low IQ, Chrome is definitely making news as the fastest and lightest web browser ever made. I don’t doubt Chrome’s speed and portability; however, calling IE users “low IQ” is a little rude. Isn’t it?

Apart from these stories what we are talking about is search giant Google’s newer version of their self proclaimed world’s fastest browser, Google Chrome.

Twitter Redevelops The Web Page For iPad

Looks like to many social networking websites, iPad is a thing they sure have to adapt to. With a brand name like Apple, it’s no wonder they get all the street cred.

Although there had been applications for using both Twitter and Facebook on the iPad, neither of these social networking behemoths were satisfied with their performance. Therefore, Facebook started Project Spartan, an effort to develop a separate HTML5 based Facebook page for the iPad.

Safari 5.1 Arrives With X Lion

With the arrival of OS X Lion, Safari 5.1 has also hit the shores. It is considered as one of the most innovative browsers in town.

Apple is raising the stakes with its latest products and satisfied users and with the release of Safari, Apple will take things to another level. The wonder browser was released yesterday with several updates and improvements.

Google Detects Malware Causing Search Traffic

Google has just detected a malware on users’ system which causes unnecessary search traffic on the servers. Google has tried to overcome this problem by sending a notification on every computer that might be infected.

Google found out that this unusual traffic was due to a malicious software on users’ computers. Google claims that this malware might have infected users’ computer through other websites which the user himself might be unaware of. Hence, by notifying the user on their Google search page, Google can make the user to take an action against it.

Mozilla Assembly Line: Firefox 6 And Firefox 7 Almost Here

This is possibly the most embarrassing bit of news I had to deliver. Let me explain why. Firefox has seem to gone downhill ever since Firefox 4 was released. Although I haven’t had many problems on 32-bit operating systems, I have tons of problems on 64-bit operating systems- having the browser crash about 5 times per week.

The mobile version isn’t too good either, and received immediate negative feedback when Firefox 4 was launched for the mobile platform.

View Two Websites At Once, On Your New Tablet

Most tablets that run Android Honeycomb have a large 10″ screen, some even with impressive 1280 x 800 pixel displays. While websites look great on high resolution screens like these, some may find it more useful to have two windows running side by side.

The default Android web browser doesn’t support this dual-pane feature, however, there is a third party browser for Android tablets that does, and it’s called the DualWeb browser, allowing users to see two websites at once.

Twitter Creates Optimized Web App

Twitter has just announced a new version of twitter.com for mobile devices, worldwide. Twitter calls it a web app although it is actually a website. The “web app” was created to provide a high quality Twitter experience on high-end touchscreen devices, whether or not the device came packed with a Twitter app.

The company stated that this web app was specifically designed for smartphones and tablets that have more advanced browsers. Twitter also mentions that there are significant improvements that take advantage of today’s high-end mobile browsers such as touch gestures and a large screen.

Thrill 4G With Wikitude 3D Browser

It looks like the highly awaited HTC EVO 3D is going to be having some heavy competition this year. LG Electronics and Wikitude have just announced that the LG Optimus 3D (seen at the MWC) will be named the Thrill 4G for AT&T and will be coupled with Wikitude’s 3D browser. The Wikitude 3D browser allows for better interaction and engagement in real-time user environments.

Google Works On Addiction To Adobe Flash

Google announced yesterday that it has added Flash support to its Instant Previews feature even though it is cautioned against using Adobe’s plugin too heavily. With support for Flash, users will be able to use a regular web browser to see a Flash-heavy, website’s animations, layout, and videos in the quick view sidebar instead of having plugin errors. The method would implement whenever a website’s details were scraped by Google’s bots but would also be turned off when the preview had to be generated on-demand.
