Microsoft Breaking Into the Internet Explorer Business
Microsoft Breaking Into the Internet Explorer Business
Microsoft is a multinational technology company that produces computer operating systems, user interface control systems, compilers, hardware, and multimedia software. The founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates came up with the idea to create a product for personal computer use. He sold his first program ‘ullaKrus’ to a few business people. Later he decided to hire personnel in the field to develop a software for the ‘MS DOS based Personal Computer.
Microsoft has developed various versions of their Windows operating system. The Windows operating system is the most widely used in the world. Most personal computers have Microsoft’s Windows installed in them. The other major Microsoft product is its Windows 95 operating system. Though Microsoft has several products, the most famous one is its Windows. The other names under which Microsoft operates are: Microsoft Office, Microsoft Works, and Microsoft Net Products.
Microsoft recently announced two new products named as’Kinect’ and ‘Windows On Tablet’. These products will support the Xbox motion detection technology. According to the release, the new kinect game applications will support gaming in the living room, entertainment center, bedroom, kitchen, and fitness/fitness area. The new games being developed by Microsoft for these Windows operating system platforms will also work across multiple Windows devices.
A Microsoft representative, during a news conference on April 12, mentioned that, with the Windows 10 launch, consumers and businesses can now expect to see more natural body movements, such as body movements with their pets. He also mentioned that Microsoft is working on having the real time capability for Xbox. This means that if you are playing a game on Xbox, your pets would move in real time.
With the Windows 10 launch, Microsoft has taken the wraps off its new ‘Microsoft Sat Nav’, a virtual navigation solution for the Microsoft windows phone operating systems. It provides users with easy access to street maps. These maps could be downloaded from the Microsoft Dynamics GP or MS Sharepoint sites. The MS Sat Nav would be coming to other Microsoft supported mobile devices, later in the future. The concept of using the on the go public cloud services for accessing maps from the phone’s private cloud was also discussed. It was also revealed that MS Sat Nav would not be included in the new bundle of apps being launched with the Windows 10 platform, which will reduce the operating system price.
Microsoft announced a couple of new features that are now available in the ‘office 365′ suite: One was the introduction of Microsoft 365 subscriptions. Now, subscribers can access special offers and’rewards’ based on their subscription usage. Another feature is Microsoft Teams.
The third most talked about topic at Microsoft’s Build conference, was the introduction of the web browser webkit. It is the web browser used on all Microsoft Windows operating systems. WebKit is Microsoft’s take on Safari, Google Chrome, and Yahoo’s Internet Explorer. It supports the Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems. According to MS, this project is one of the biggest improvements in the history of the windows operating system.
Finally, the last topic that was covered was MS Visual Studio Tools. Microsoft is trying to provide a better programmer’s tool – a cross-platform development environment for C/C++ developers, as well as Web designers. As a result of the cross-platform functionality, Visual Studio has been integrated into the Windows Server, and all Visual Studio users will be able to get their program files through Noda Time, as an open source alternative to Microsoft Technologies. This change is considered as one of the most important Microsoft announcements.
In the past, Microsoft has released two products based on internet explorer. One is the Microsoft Office Suite which includes Word, Outlook and PowerPoint, while the other is Microsoft Works. The new product, Microsoft Office 2021, replaces the older versions, and this new release is designed to integrate all of the functionality from the old products with the new Microsoft Office. For example, Microsoft works allows the same applications to be opened in internet explorer, as well as Word, Outlook and PowerPoint.
However, the integration does not stop there. Microsoft also announced that Internet Explorer 4.0 has been improved with many new features including: faster startup, easier navigation and browsing habits, improved security and privacy protection, and more. According to Microsoft, these changes have resulted in billions of new windows operating system installations, and millions of users are able to access the web using Microsoft internet explorer. Microsoft also announced that they will be releasing Microsoft outlook next week, and will provide more details on it at a later date. When they say more details, it may mean that they are about to introduce a new platform, however, it is best to stay tuned for future announcements such as these.
With so many changes taking place within Microsoft today, it is no wonder that the corporate morale is very low. For instance, when Microsoft announced that they would be removing internet explorer from the Windows operating system, it simply opened up the door for another browser, like Google Chrome or Safari, to replace it. However, when they announced that they will be integrating internet explorer with the new Microsoft outlook in the future, this created a big buzz throughout the industry. Therefore, Microsoft lost a huge opportunity to promote their own browser to the market, by having their competitor do it for them. Hopefully, with everything that is happening within Microsoft, the company will be able to keep Microsoft outlook as a separate project, and will keep building upon the success of the microsoft internet explorer project, rather than trying to make a profit off of an already established technology.
