For what Microsoft Edge hates tabs?

1 year, 10 months ago
Recently I have written number of the notes anyway concerning to work from bukmarkleta in browsers and almost in everyone have mentioned some problem with IE, stating hope that MS Edge will come and everything will correct.

Therefore could not miss emergence of virtual computers with Windows 10 and has decided to check how now affairs with collection of annoying experience are.

By the machine there was MS Edge 11.00.10240.16397 version of 7.22.2015 (according to the file), it 20.10240.16384.0 (according to information in settings of the browser) …

Bukmarkleta in Internet Explorer 11: storage format, limits and secret rules, artful bug

1 year, 11 months ago
After at once two bukmarklet working in Google Chrome and Firefox have refused to work in Internet Explorer 11, and did not give in the console any error messages and did not give life signs at all, I began to understand, in what business.

At first I have decided that matter in limit at URL length and by that at length of bukmarklet. In IE 7 restriction was in 2083 the character, in IE 11, on assurances of the experimenting users, limit have increased. It was necessary to find out by practical consideration, what this border now.

But at first small preface.

Google Chrome stores tabs in JSON, Firefox — in the sqlite database. Therefore tabs can have any names. IE stores each tab as the separate file, for example, in the %userprofile %\Favorites\Links folder. Therefore the browser will adjust names of tabs that they approached under norms of file system (to replace question marks, for example). Therefore in IE there cannot be in one folder two tabs with identical name, and in Google Chrome and Firefox — can (tabs in them can be even in general without name, only with icon of the site or standard substitute).

Bukmarkleta: if XPath is unavailable, and selectors and methods of navigation on DOM are not enough

1 year, 11 months ago
Recently I tried to write some conditionally cross-browser bukmarklet with selections and navigation of medium complexity. It has decided to be limited to the latests version of Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Having started check in the last browser, with grief has found, what even in IE 11 still there is no support XPath.

Seemingly complete support is promised in Edge:? Microsoft Edge supports the XML Path Language Version 1.0 with no variations or extensions?. And already even, apparently, implementation is added to Internet Explorer Developer Channel (nobody checked?). But this still insufficient consolation.

Detection on the method described here) became the following step? everything remarkably works even at the paranoid sites like the Twitter (by the way, if you suddenly did not know, in Firefox still it is impossible to start bukmarklt in the Twitter or, for example, in Gitkhab, because of still not corrected bug). But method this very bulky. It well is suitable for development of the sites, but it burdens small user bukmarkleta excess asynchrony, complication of logic and extra time on loading of the file.

It was necessary to look for simpler replacements for some tools which were not enough for me XPath.

Support of DOM L3 XPath in Project Spartan

2 years, 3 months ago
The note from the translator: I am the server Java-programmer, but thus it has so historically developed that I work only under Windows. In team all sit generally on Mac or Linux, but someone has to test alive web interfaces of projects under the real IE, to lump as not to me? So I use it very many years and by working need, and — owing to laziness — as the main browser. In my opinion, with each new version, starting with the ninth, it becomes more and more worthy, and Project Spartan promises to be excellent at all. At least, in the technology roadmap — as equals with others. I bring to your attention transfer of article from the blog of developers giving some grounds to hope for it.

And Internet Explorer can be useful

2 years, 3 months ago
Hi everyone!

I want to tell about what application have found for Internet Explorer.



I use fayrfoks for viewing of pages, and chrome — for development.

The Internet Explorer has not replaced to me fayrfoks, chrome. I have found for it special application. In it I work with difficult utilities in which there are a lot of big pictures.

Reason simple. And fayrfoks and chrome on big, difficult pages, with large volume of pictures, fall sooner or later, and the explorer makes an effort, suspends, but does not die.
