Hey everybody. I'm new to the forums right now and I've been reading some of the stuff in this section. I'm just wondering when Microsoft will create a IE 7 with popup blocking. I know of even Netscape that does this in their 7 version. It seems that they're lagging behind a bit.
It would be cool if you could have a browser that had every option thinkable. Such as which types of scripts, cookies, and maybe even some server side coding to accept or not accept. Don't know if preventing server side things are possible, but it probably can be done.
I've heard about that new "Lockhorn" or "Blackcomb" Windows coming out, so maybe they'll do it then? Not sure. I surf the web with IE 6 SP1 and I have everything disabled in the Internet zone. All cookies are blocked, unless I add the address to my accept list. This also is the same with the "Trusted Sites" option, but I still have a lot of security in that zone.
I know this type of web design isn't possible for all sites, but shouldn't they work towards this? I'm probably asking for an Internet utopia that probably isn't possible, but I bet that if Microsoft made an IE 7 with a lot of features that computer illiterate people understand, we'd be on our way. Just my thoughts on the Internet in general.Code:<!ELEMENT html (head, body)><!ATTLIST html> <!ELEMENT head (title, style)><!ATTLIST head> <!ELEMENT title (#PCDATA)><!ATTLIST title> <!ELEMENT style (#PCDATA)> <!ELEMENT body (p)*><!ATTLIST body> <!ELEMENT p (#PCDATA | a | img | br)*> <!ELEMENT a (#PCDATA)> <!ELEMENT img EMPTY> <!ELEMENT br EMPTY><!ATTLIST br> <!ATTLIST style type CDATA #REQUIRED> <!ATTLIST p id ID #IMPLIED class CDATA #IMPLIED> <!ATTLIST a href CDATA #REQUIRED> <!ATTLIST img src CDATA #REQUIRED alt CDATA #REQUIRED>
