During this meeting, Abhisheik mentioned about a trick while presenting the Naked Browser Competition, that is run the command “explore –extoff” to open up the IE8 with lightening fast. This command opens IE with out enabling any Add-ons, which is a plain old fashioned and classical browser of IE4 or IE5 like. Anyhow, it is good that we can use the latest component in classical old style.
June 25th is the next time we can connect as the 2nd event of this kind. Did you attend this? Did i miss any point?
