5 reasons why IE9 will not support Windows XP

IE9 vs XP1 5 reasons why IE9 will not support Windows XP

We all know that Microsoft is all set to release its latest  version of browser Internet Explorer 9 in few months. Internet Explorer 9 has many new features and is ready to compete against Google Chrome5, Firefox 3.6 and other browsers. Meanwhile Internet Explorer 9 comes with many new problems and one among them is  “Internet Explorer 9 doesn’t work in Windows XP“.

Before going to problems part we would like to give some cool new features of IE9.

  1. JavaScript Background Compilation
  2. Type Optimizations
  3. Fast Interpreter
  4. Supports HTML5 and CSS3
  5. SVG support

We suggest: Want to explore more about these features? Click Link1 and Link2.

All are new features :), are  you surprised by the Microsoft move?Yes?

Ok then let me tell you more about IE9. We all Bloggers are mostly amazed by the Windows7 and most of them have switched from Windows XP to Windows7 and also from  Windows Vista to Windows7 as it had many problems.

When we tried IE9 preview and demos, It looked perfect and we totally went crazy about the features of IE9. But when we tried on Windows XP we just got to know Microsoft killed Windows XP with its IE9! A dialog box popped out stating

Windows Internet Explorer Platform Preview does not support any operating system earlier than Windows Vista SP2

IE9 Installation Error 5 reasons why IE9 will not support Windows XP

What do you have to say about it? Microsoft clearly says no to nearly decade old operating system Windows XP! Now let us put in front the main reasons behind why IE9 doesn’t work in Windows XP. These are the 5 main reasons we found why IE9 doesn’t support Windows XP:

1. DirectX

DirectX Tech1811 5 reasons why IE9 will not support Windows XP

IE9 uses the Direct2D feature of DirectX when accessing the graphics hardware to accelerate image creation and drawing. Direct2D was introduced in Windows 7, but then added to Windows Vista SP2 and Windows Server 2008 R2. But not to Windows XP.

2. Security

Network Security1 5 reasons why IE9 will not support Windows XP

Windows XP users have a fast, safe, reliable and private browser in Internet Explorer 8 that IE9 doesn’t provide for XP.

3. Graphics

nvidia1 5 reasons why IE9 will not support Windows XP

Internet Explorer 9 requires the modern graphics and security underpinnings that have come since 2001, which XP doesn’t have.

4. Hardware and OS

Windows71 5 reasons why IE9 will not support Windows XP

IE9 is intended to be run on a modern operating system in order to build on the latest hardware and operating system innovations.

5. Multi core

Multi Core1 5 reasons why IE9 will not support Windows XP

IE9 require a discrete graphics card and prefer multiple cores. Such things didn’t exist in XP.

Several users say it might be one of the marketing strategy by Microsoft to switch from  Windows XP users to Vista or Windows7, and may be Microsoft has totally stopped support to Windows XP and may not include XP in any of its future Software releases.

If this is true then for sure Microsoft will suffer big blow as Windows XP has more than 60% users in world using it when compared to 15% and 11% share on vista and Windows7.

What about other browser vendors, such as Opera, Mozilla and Google. Are these players abandoning XP? No! Here’s what Google Chrome developer Alex Russell had to say:

I recognize Opera and Mozilla and on Chrome we’re all doing hardware acceleration. And, all of us are doing it on XP. What you’re describing is a situation where people are less behind. The way is to not leave users behind.

Tech Tip: After all, upgrading to a different browser might be a whole lot easier (and cheaper) than upgrading the entire OS. After all, if Chrome, Firefox and Opera are all going to be able to do everything (or most) of that Internet Explorer 9 can do without having to upgrade the OS

In August 2009, Facebook announced its new lighter version “Facebook Lite” which was optimized for users on slower or intermittent Internet connections. Facebook Lite offered fewer services, excluded most third-party applications and required less bandwidth. Very fast and easy to browse version.

But lite version couldn’t survive for long time. Although many users felt that lite version was very useful because whenever Facebook normal version experienced the downtime users had an another option to shift and connect to their buddies. On 20 April 2010 that support for the “Lite” service had ended and that users were redirected back to the normal, full content, Facebook website. The service was only operational eight months.

XHP:

XHP is a PHP extension which augments the syntax of the language to both make your front-end code easier to understand and help you avoid cross-site scripting attacks.

XHP does this by making PHP understand XML document fragments, similar to what E4X does for ECMAScript (JavaScript). While PHP is typically used to write front-end code, by itself it isn’t a very good language for generating HTML (as evidenced by the popularity of templating engines like Smarty). XHP is something between a programmatic UI library and a full templating system.

HTML5 : What? Why? How? and When?

Tech18 HTML51 HTML5 : What? Why? How? and When?

When we started learning  HTML – core language of WWW(World Wide Web), We might have thought what all junks they have written here! As days went , many made it as their main-stream and started digging more about it. And even we went through new technologies like jQuery, Joomla and many more. But still there are many complexities in writing a single normal HTML page! Just to include a header we had to write some 15 or odd lines. But recently W3C introduced an update to this technology. A enhancement of HTML 4.01 to 5, which many people said “lines reduced and creativity increased”.

So lets get to know more about HTML5 by answering four easy questions which each and every users asks us :

  1. What is HTML5?

    The very first question which comes into your mind when you heard about it . HTML 5 is a new version of HTML / XHTML which specifically focuses on the wants and needs of web app developers. W3C has implemented many new features to reduce your coding time.

  2. Why HTML5?

    There are many new features are included in HTML5. Just take a tour of it here,

    • Video :  Before when we wanted to embed and play a video on our site we had to embed it by writing lengthy code as below:
         1:  <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0" width="840" height="100">
         2:  <param name="movie" value="images/1.swf" />
         3:  <param name="quality" value="high" />
         4:  <embed src="videos/banner.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="840" height="100"></embed>
         5:  </object>
      But Now just by adding 3 lines of codes , you can embed and play a video.
         1:  <video>
         2:  <source src="videos/video1.mp4" />
         3:  </video>

      Have a look at this site which is using the above code : jilion.com

      Advantage: video plug-ins and flash plug-ins are not required anymore. Play any video format you like. icon smile HTML5 : What? Why? How? and When?

    • Audio : Previously there was option to add only few formats of audio files or we had to embed few players to play all formats. Now with HTML5 Audio feature you play any kind of audio files with just few lines. Look at the code you need to add
         1:  <audio src='audio.ogg controls="controls">
         2:  Play Audio
         3:  </audio>

    • Canvas : Canvas is a powerful utility using which you can draw graphics with the help of JavaScript. Canvas are very useful when you want to show some reports, animations, charts etc. Have a look at few canvas examples, Canvas with animation Canvas with Gradients One of the best feature added in HTML5 is “Canvas and Video“. You can play 2 videos next to next as explained before, but difference is you can play the reflection of 1st video.

      Advantage: Play more with graphics with minimal use of JavaScript.

    • Movable Contents: HTML5 says drag and drop whatever you like, customize your page as you like. Few months back Google implemented drag and drop feature for file attachments with Gmail. Few people didn’t close their mouth when they saw this feature in Gmail. Now its all easy for any web developer to add this feature! Previously when I used this drag and drop feature in one of my website I used jQuery, which made to include many JavaScript’s and obviously page took lot of time to load!! Now its all easy with HTML5. Have look a Drag and Drop feature here. And see how it can be used with Text here.

      Advantage: Make your visitors happy with the page how they like.

    • Document structure: When it comes to designing structure for your page, HTML5 has made lot of changes and it is very easy. Now a small kid code its own page with the HTML5 changes. Many new tags like, <header></header> <nav></nav> <article></article> <footer></footer> are added in HTML5.You can have a look at new tags introduced in HTML5 and also few tags which are not supported by HTML5 . Now very less time  it will take you to design single page :).

      Advantage: Save your precious time with the reduction is page code icon smile HTML5 : What? Why? How? and When?

    • Edit without Editor: Sounds weird right? Yes, you right. With HTML5 you can edit the content of your page without opening your page in some editor. You can call it as On-Page Editor. See how to Edit without Editor here.

      Advantage: why you need editors?

    • Work when Offline: Work when offline feature allows you to find whether the browser is working fine, allows you to work without internet connection by storing cookie or cache files. HTML 5 increases functionality for storing web based information locally on your machine. When your net disconnected the new HTML5 features gets the status of the net and enables work offline feature so that you continue with your work.

      Advantage: Show your site to someone when your net is disconnected.

    Visit www.findmebyip.com from Firefox 3.5 or more to know cool new features of HTML5

  3. How can i use HTML5?

    As HTML5 has vast changes in coding structure it demands every developer to go through it before using it. There are many new added tags like header, article, nav, footer, canvas. There are lot of changes also made in existing tags. So I recommend you to please go through HTML5.

    We suggest: www.dev.w3.org/html5/html-author/

  4. When can i use HTML5?

If you ask me this question I say, RIGHT NOW! Although your current browser doesn’t support HTML5 features I recommend you to be ready with HTML5 so that you can kick start with it. By the end of this year all your browsers will be ready with HTML5 as their next release will change the future of WWW. Just take a tour with next release of browsers which supports HTML5,

Internet Explorer 9

Google Chrome 5

Firefox 3.6 (Ready with few HTML5 Features. Firefox 4 is still under development)

Opera 10.53 (Ready with few HTML5 features)

Safari 4 (Ready with few HTML5 features)
