      At least it have native RSS support

      I never did understand why RSS was removed from browsers. A lengthy discussion about its removal from Firefox made no sense to me. A basic feed based on the ATOM spec is very simple to parse and, to my eye, isn’t dangerous. Written in PHP, the parser is less than a page of code.

      That said, I had one site in particular where the owner (RIP) wanted the feed. In 2017 I dropped it and reverted to plain text. My reasoning was that “push” (what we now call “notifications”) is less desirable than search.

      You can still add them to Outlook. And, as it happens, to Vivaldi.

      While officially retired from multiple Windows 10 versions and not shipping with Windows 11, Internet Explorer will still be available on Windows 7 ESU, Windows 8.1, and all versions of Windows 10 LTSC client, IoT, and Server.

      On systems running these Windows versions, the web browser will continue receiving technical support and security updates for the lifecycle of the Windows version it runs on.

      Apple announced its newest operating system release, iOS 16, which is currently in beta testing. There are many things about it that I’m looking forward to, including more support for passwordless authentication

      iOS 16 Will Let iPhone Users Bypass CAPTCHAs in Supported Apps and Websites

      Tapping on images of traffic lights or deciphering squiggly text to prove you are human will soon be a much less common nuisance for iPhone users, as iOS 16 introduces support for bypassing CAPTCHAs in supported apps and websites.

      The handy new feature can be found in the Settings app under Apple ID > Password & Security > Automatic Verification. When enabled, Apple says iCloud will automatically and privately verify your device and Apple ID account in the background, eliminating the need for apps and websites to present you with a CAPTCHA verification prompt…

      How many are likely to “sign up” to Apple’s way of doing things? Will be interesting to see.

      There are more than billion iOS users.~80% will run iOS 16/iPadOS 16 in 2-3 months.

      Will askwoody sign up ?

      Only if the software used here has that ability.

      More importantly, who uses a phone to use this site?

      IE has and will always leave a bad taste in my mouth. As a web site developer, the shenanigans MS pulled in the early browser wars irked me to no end. Always having to write two branches of code – one standards compliant and the other MS proprietary. Thanks for nothing MS.

      Good riddance IE – you will NOT be missed.
