Re: Google Apps dropping support for IE8

Yeah LogMeIn Free works fine in Chrome... just not as snappy/smooth as IE's ActiveX. I don't even have Pro subscription.

I just went there like normally and it's working. Same with IE after installing ActiveX plugin.

ActiveX is great, Dude111. It's not like Java doesn't have many security holes. =)

Here is this machine I built for a business a long time ago. It is a DVR/Internet streaming server with 8 security cameras. Check out the uptime in meantime. =)

But my question is..for Chrome when you use it..how are you using it..with ActiveX, Flash or Java ? To do it with ActiveX which I suggest..it works faster if you do the change.

see here and follow the link as the Rep from Logmein suggests.

"We do not currently support Chrome fully, it currently works with Flash, Java, or HTML (not HTML 5). For the time being if you are on a Windows-based PC, I personally suggest you use this extension for Chrome:

»chrome.google.com/webstore/detai···ponefajn

This will allow our ActiveX plugin (what we use in IE) to work in Chrome, and provide the full Pro featureset. I use it myself on my Chrome browsers, and it works great."

I am still using ie 5.0 and happy with it.

On Windows 3.1?

I have IE 5.x (16-bit) in a Win3.1 VM.

IIRC IE5 worked in W2K.

In your IE6 do you have all of the ActiveX set for "enable" or "prompt" ?
NO....... DISABLE!!

Active-X can be very dangerous.... Years ago i didnt have things set like this and someone gave me a site (I used to always have scripts enabled as well) and the site wanted to install an active-x!!!! (I COULD NOT GET OUT OF IT.... CLICKING NO WOULD JUST POPUP THE BOX AGAIN) -- I tried 30 times at least....... I FINALLY PRESSED CTRL-ALT-DEL AND ENDED TASK ON MY BROWSER!!

Now i have scripting disabled (Unless i need it) as well as active-x 99% locked out (The local controls i have can run (Embedded WMP,flash,etc)) .. I also have USERDATA PERSISTANCE and ALLOW PASTE OPERATIONS VIA SCRIPT disabled....

Re: Google Apps dropping support for IE8

It wasn't the Active X plugin for sure. I may try it later or I just keep using IE10 =)

Big deal....

I like Google Apps a lot. I use Firefox, Chrome, and IE. All three work well. I don't use IE8 anymore at all. IE9 works just fine. If you have to run an older version of IE, then install Chrome or Firefox. Problem solved.

So, is this why, when I went Youtube earlier today to watch a trailer on that Muslim movie, on IE8 on XP Pro, that it began playing immediately (Proxomitron should have given me a toggle switch but it didn't), buffered literally every couple of seconds with audio totally, and very badly, out sync with the video. With buffering every few seconds and the out of sync thing, I quickly decided to turn it off. I could NOT turn it off! I finally got the video part turned off but the audio would not turn off. I closed that tab but the audio continued to play (buffering every few seconds). I then shut down IE to clear it. But that didn't help. It continued to play the audio! I finally had to shut down the virtual machine completely to stop that Youtube audio.

I have not yet restarted the virtual machine but I have a bad feeling that I am going to hear audio from that movie when I do. I suspect I am going to have reboot the host machine to get rid of it. If Google hates IE 8 what does it expect XP users to do? There is no IE 9 for XP. Does Google actually expect everyone to move to Chrome? It sounds like this is the only reason it is doing this. Yes, I use Fx and Sea Monkey on the virtual machine, but I don't have Flash installed on those browsers. IE8 is the latest version for XP. XP is still supported by Microsoft and Google should not be so arrogant. Google needs taking down more than a peg or two. I'm no lover of Microsoft, but in this instance, I hope Microsoft can succeed in sticking it to Google as they should continue to support IE8 as long as XP is supported by Microsoft.

I was really surprised when I took the challenge to see which search engine (Bing or Google) was the best that Bing won hands down. If Fx had a Bing Sharing extension similar to Google Sharing extension, I would probably switch.

That Poll was probably started by M$ so of course BING is gonna be #1 (Totally worthless poll)

I dont understand MELE why when you close your browser you still here the audio.... (It should drop off within seconds after browser closes)

It was not a poll. You choose a search topic and put the term in the field and then you are given side by side (page split down the middle) with the results of the search. You don't know which side of the page is Bing results and which side is Google. You look at both, maybe visit some of the sites to see if think the site was a good choice by the search engine for what you are searching for, and then you choose whether the results on the left, or the ones on the right were the best for you. You don't know if you have chosen Google or Bing. You then put in another search term of your choice and repeat the process. You do this 5 TIMES for five different search terms. Then you get the results and see which browser's search results you chose each of the 5 times.

Re: Google Apps dropping support for IE8

Google needs to fix this. They also included FX ESR. You absolutely cannot change certain settings in Gmail without a current browser.

I had someone on another forum ask me about a Gmail feature she couldn't find. I can get to that feature on Pale Moon 15.1 and Iron, but not FX ESR. I have no idea what the person who asked was using. Older browsers only give you pages similar to mobile pages on settings. You have no choice. If you use a current browser, the bottom of the page has mobile/standard. If you choose standard, you can get to the settings.

FX ESR IS current, dammit.

Saying Fx 10 ESR is not current? That could cook Google's goose although, sadly, since Mozilla is practically owned by Google I bet they don't complain. Of course, I believe ESR will upgrade version 10 in November or December as it is 10 month cycle I think? So, if Google is officially spitting on IE 8 and XP users and Fx 10 ESR users on Oct 26 ...not too long for Fx to be effected.

What if you fake Fx10 user agent string to the latest version? That should fool Gmail.

Yes that usually works on most sites Mele (Sites that lie and say IE6 will not work on this site.... CHANGING THE UA proves otherwise!! (Site works fine))
