Microsoft opens up IE bug database

Microsoft opens up a public database to allow Internet Explorer users to report bugs.

Microsoft has established a public database to allow Internet Explorer users to report bugs in the Web browser.

To post or view bugs, users must sign up for a Passport account on the Microsoft Connect Web site at https://connect.microsoft.com/site/sitehome.aspx?SiteID=136. Microsoft plans to allow non-registered users to view reported bugs in a couple of months, according to a post on the Internet Explorer Weblog. (http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/)

The company said it opened up the site in response to user feedback.

"Many customers have asked us about having a better way to enter IE bugs. It is asked, "Why don't you have Bugzilla like Firefox or other groups do?" said the Microsoft blog post.

Microsoft has posted a best practices guide for posting bugs and allows users to restrict access to bug posts by marking them as private instead of public.

Microsoft is only accepting bug posts for Internet Explorer 7 and future versions.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
