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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
