Internet Explorer The new version of Internet Explorer in Longhorn 4051 is version 6.05.4051.0.  Even though Longhorn is many years away (if ever!) the folks at Microsoft have realized that people want more from their browser, due to popularity of the competition, ex. Mozilla. UPDATE: Longhorn 4051 review.

RE: Blocking popups ... too bad ....
by Jason on Fri 12th Dec 2003 21:01 UTC

"As long as 90%+ of people were using a browser that allowed pop-ups, I think the marketing scum were pretty happy and the rest of us using 'alternative' browsers were in the clear.
However, now that pop-ups can be blocked in IE, I cringe to think of what they will come up with next ;)
Already, i'm starting to see a new kind of pop-up; I don't know what it is .. it looks like a pop-up, but it's actually inside the browser window."


Ummm well...that already exists. You can use a layer in the same way you would a pop up.
