Microsoft-Yahoo: Setting the Record Straight Once More

It seems Mondays are slowly becoming the traditional days for Microsoft/Yahoo updates. Today, Microsoft saw the need to ‘set the record straight’ after Yahoo had released a statement on Saturday that, according to Microsoft, contained too many inaccuracies to be left uncorrected. Microsoft and Carl Icahn had offered Yahoo a guaranteed search revenue of $2.3 billion annually for five years, but Yahoo rejected this bid on Saturday. In the announcement, Yahoo argues that its deal with Google has “superior financial value and less complexity.” Yahoo also believes that replacing the current board and top management at Yahoo would destabilize the company too much during the long period before the deal would get regulatory approval.

Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 8 Beta

We have been informed that Internet Explorer 8 is right around the corner, and Microsoft has released the beta of the new browser. Internet Explorer 8 is available from Microsoft’s Beta pages, and is compatible with Windows Vista x64 and x86, Windows XP SP2 and Microsoft Windows Server 2003. The installation appears to overwrite the IE7 install, it can be later removed, and a reboot is required before the installation is complete.

So what novelties does Internet Explorer 8 bring to the table? Microsoft lists a good number of new features, including a new favorites bar, contextual “Activities” menus, “WebSlices” (chunks of content sites can serve to users’ link bars), an improved phishing filter, “domain highlighting”, new developer tools, and functionality to help users transition from other browsers. For instance, IE8 can import Firefox bookmarks and even look for extensions similar to those a user might have installed in Mozilla’s browser.
