I’m a big fan of Google Chrome as a Web browser, but every time I double-click on an HTM or HTML document, it opens up in Microsoft Internet Explorer. Eewww.. How do I fix it and change the default program for this type of file or content, Dave?

Someone in our live community recently asked what I feel the advantages – and disadvantages – are for using Google Chrome. We are talking about the web browser in this instance, not the operating system. What are YOUR thoughts? Is Chrome a good choice – or not?

Send a big Merry Christmas to Microsoft and thank them for the continued support of their products. Be sure to beat the exploit makers to the patches being offered on Patch Tuesday and the corresponding exploits that always follow on Hacker Wednesday.
Remember, first patched is never hacked.
Thank you Microsoft.

My last look at the browser wars was back in April of this year. At that time I noted that big changes were underway. The slow and steady growth of Firefox had stopped. Firefox and Internet Explorer were both starting to fade and the sole contender to gain in market share was Google Chrome.

Let me save you the trouble. It’s not real exciting, isn’t real pretty, and I doubt anyone will be switching browsers because of this new release.
Provided there are no major glitches, I’m sure IE9 will settle into place without fanfare or interruption of IE’s ever dwindling market share.

One of the fun reasons of hosting many websites is the information that I can collect from all the visitors. No, I can’t tell how old you are, what you wearing or other personal information but all web administrators collect information like what browser you’re using, your operating system, language and even your screen size.
Ultimately this information is used by website administrators to make your experience on the website more attractive and more compatible with your machine. It’s one way of telling how many people are still using Microsoft Windows and how many people are using Internet Explorer versus Firefox or Chrome

I ran into Mark Tobias here in Rio de Janeiro. We were both attending a party to commemorate the third anniversary of the passing of a dear friend of ours, Doug Matheson. I soon found out that Mark is known as the tax man. No, he doesn’t work for the IRS, so don’t fly an airplane into his building. He is the software tax man. As our sales tax code gets continually more complex, Mark is the expert that writes the software to make sure that all the sales tax codes are being followed when we make an online transaction.

What’s Microsoft planning for Internet Explorer 9? There’s a lot the company isn’t ready to talk about, including what sort of new features it’ll have and when it’ll be available. But at the MIX10 conference in Las Vegas, Microsoft is telling Web developers about the new capabilities that IE9 will provide, and it’s giving them the ability to get some hands-on experience with them for the first time. (Along with other tech journalists, I was prebriefed late last week.)

We all must browse the web. Unfortunately, the Lynx browser is no longer cutting it. If you don’t remember it, then you are not old like I am.

Is IE solid, and safe?
