Would you recommend dropping IE11 support in favor of using ECMAscript 6 advances. IE11 apparently still has approx 10% market share across a mix of corporate and individual users. This is according to stats from https://analytics.usa.gov/, which I like because it's not so weighted toward power users. I would like to use arrow functions, for example, but 10% seems big. Our client's are corporate, but their audience is mostly individuals.
I am getting frequent "MSN is not responding" messages while running Internet explorer 11. I suspect MSN and  would like to remove it. It seems to have been installed when I installed Internet explorer, to my knowledge,  I certainly haven't specifically installed it. Can I uninstall MSN from my PC and still run Internet explorer ?
I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
I have also observed the following:
When Internet Explorer is first launched, and click on the Tools button all the options are available:
Add Site to Start Menu
View downloads
Manage Addons
F12 developer tools
Go to Pinned sites
Compatibility view settings
Report Website Problems
Internet Options
About Internet Explorer

After a couple of minutes, only the following options are available:
Compatibility View Settings
Report Website Problems

The Zoom option is missing and the remainder of options are all greyed-out.
Some other IT administrators within a certain company I am consulting for would like to install and use the Google Chrome web browser within Server 2016.

Will this create any problems for the Server 2016 OS?
reCAPTCHA is not rendering in IE11. If I disable the GPO setting: Use Policy List of Internet Explorer 7 sites, it works. If I enable the policy, add an element, with the required URL not in the policy, the reCAPTCHA function disappears from the page.

Can I see user's browsing history in incognito mode.

Thank you in advance.
Hi Experts,

I'm a new Android user and recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256GB for myself. All worked fine for a while on Google Play website, where I could download any app from the store and have it installed on my phone. Recently though, I'm getting the following error whenever I try to download an app via the Google Play website:

Error on Google Play Website

I've checked and triple checked that my Phone is associated with my Google Account. So why am I getting this error and how can I resolve it? I've tried it in all browsers installed on my Windows 10 Pro box.  Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. Same problem with each browser. I did nothing with my Google Account that I'm aware of that should cause me to have this error. The phone is connected via USB and I can download any app I want using the Play Store icon on the phone, just not from the website?

Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can resolve it, please?

Many thanks for any help.
After the most recent windows update, my default search engine for searching the internet has been changed from Google to Bing for all of my browsers. New browsers are set to use Bing. This was done without my permission. Very annoying. So I would like to delete Bing from my search providers and re install google as the default search engine. The advice i get on the Internet directs me to do this individually for each browser i am using. I use different browsers. Is there not a way in Windows to make Google the default for all browsers. They do this for Bing why can't i do it for Google?

Hi Guys,

I have a 'www' A record added to the forward lookup zone in DNS for the company website (hosted externally to the local domain).

I can ping www.website.com from any workstation internally and it resolves to the correct external IP.

However, I am unable to open the site.
Initially I thought it was a browser cache issue, but it happens in IE and Chrome.  The record was inserted last week, but it still gives error:

The site can't be reached
server IP address cannot be found

nslookup gives the correct website address and external IP.

Any ideas will be appreciated,

We have a Windows Server 2016 ADCS server and I am recently trying to get it to generate certificates that work with Chrome extra. But no matter what I do when creating the CSR and adding the SAN names to the CSR, they do not appear in the certificate. It

Chrome gives this error:

You connection is not private
Attackers might be trying to steal your information from xxx

This server could not prove that it is nagios.hud.ac.uk; its security certificate does not specify Subject Alternative Names. This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection.

What do I need to do on the ADCS server to ensure SAN names are properly added to certificates?

I have a page which sets a JavaScript cookie, onClick of a button,  with no expiration date (session cookie) on "page A". Clicking this button opens a new tab (target="_blank") with a page ("page B") on the same domain, just a different path. On "page B" (every page has this code), when it loads, I have code that looks for the cookie and grabs the value and then sets the value of the cookie back to an empty string. The issue is, when opening "page B" in the new tab, the cookie doesn't have the value set? If I don't open page B in a new tab, everything works as designed.  Why is this? How do I get around it? I'm assuming it has something to do with the expiration and new tab??? I have no idea? Any insight by anyone? FYI.. I put console logs in the code that sets the cookie and reads the cookie. I always see a value getting set on "page A" via the console.logs but I never see any values being read (empty string returned) on "page B". Have been using this code for almost 2 years with no issues but we never used before on a page opened in a new tab.

this is the code that sets the cookie:
    var hostname = 	_satellite.getVar("Hostname");
    var pagename = 	_satellite.getVar("Page Name");
    pagename = pagename.replace(/\u2013|\u2014/g, "-");
    var nav_element_name = this.getAttribute('data-analytics-nav-name');
    nav_element_name = window._dtmSpecialChar(nav_element_name); 
    var curr_nav_element_name = hostname + ":" + pagename + ":" + nav_element_name;

Open in new window

Is Microsoft Edge more secure than Google Chrome?  If so, why is that?  Will Chrome or other browsers catch up?  Doe it make sense to use Edge since is ships with Win 10 and may be more seamlessly integrated with Windows Defender?  Looking to reimage some pcs in a small private school and I want to increase our security as transparently as possible.
If I have web pages stored locally on my hard disk (HTML, Javascript, images), and I browse them with Chrome, they seem to be very slow to render: 4-5 seconds per page.

Is there a way to get faster browsing of local content with Chrome?  Is this a security setting that can be disabled for local content?
Internet Explorer 11 doesn't allow me to download Google Chrome.
 When I attempt to do so - I receive a message that says something about this page or site can not be contacted or found from IE.

However I can download FireFox from Internet Explorer  successfully. And I can even download Google Chrome from FireFox.
Note : This is on a Windows 10 and 7 workstation.

So whats wrong with IE 11 not being able to download Chrome ?  And How can I resolve this problem.
