Firefox

Netscape

etscape
  • Netscape’s new 8.0 is described as “more of an information portal (think My Yahoo!) than a straight browser,” but also as being more “crowded” (PC Magazine).
  • Netscape also uses a multibar setup, but this crowds things up.
  • Netscape uses a tabbed interface and the Gecko engine just like Firefox. Yet, Netscape ALSO uses the IE engine, so Netscape will run ActiveX and VBS and properly use proprietary HTML tags unlike Firefox.
  • Netscape imports bookmarks from other browsers.
  • Configuration guide for Netscape available at http://isapps.jmu.edu/tutorials/browser/
  • Browser Name / OS version:Netscape 4.x on OS 9.x Netscape 7.x, Mac OS 10.x Netscape 7.x, WinXP
  • Support Level: unsupported unsupported, but unsupported, 8.0 is recommend upgrade to the new version. latest version for best browsing and security
  • e-campus/J-Ess compatability: may work, but not be Works best w/ e-campus / (part of PeopleSoft, which supported by vendor J-Ess on the Mac

includes IS-HR, IS-SA, IS-Fin)

  • Works for e-Grading: No Does not work for e-grading
  • Grade Entry on e-campusWorks with eVA: No Netscape 7.02 is recommended for OS 9.2.2 eVA users.

Netscape 7.1 recommended for OSX eVA users.

s afari
Safari

NO! Not that type of Safari!

s afari7
Safari
  • Standard browser in Macintosh OS X
  • Allows option to use tabbed browsing
  • Cmd-, provides a wealth of preference settings

==============================================================================

  • Browser Name / OS version: Safari 1.x on Mac OS 10.2(Jaguar)
  • Support Level: Vendor does not support this browser for e-campus or J-Ess.
  • e-campus/J-Ess compatability: Apple is not updating this browser nor is the vendor supporting backwards compatability. Recommendation: Upgrade to Panther. Mac OS 10.3.4 may work, but has issues.
  • Works for e-Grading Grade Entry on e-campus: No
  • Works with eVA: Safari 1.0 is supported by eVA for OSX

==============================================================================

  • Browser Name / OS version: Safari 1.2 on Mac OS 10.3.4 & Greater (Panther)
  • Support Level: Vendor does not support this browser for the version of e-campus / J-Ess that JMU is currently running.
  • e-campus/J-Ess compatibility (part of PeopleSoft, which includes IS-HR, IS-SA, IS-Fin): We hope to upgrade in the future to allow Safari to be supported by e-campus / J-Ess.
  • Works for e-Grading Grade Entry on e-campus: May work, but has some issues.
  • Works with eVA: No. Safari 1.0 is supported by eVA for Mac OS X users.

Refer to http://isapps.jmu.edu/browser/mac.asp for Macs and https://buys-www-02.buysense.com/login/browser_support.jsp for eVA configuration.

  • Slightly crowded, but less crowded than Netscape.
  • Better use of tabs than Firefox. Opera allows dragging and dropping of tabs to rearrange order. This is better than having to go into Firefox’s Tools and Options and manually entering what tabs (and order) open at start up. “Opera does not import bookmarks from other browsers when you install it” (PC Magazine).
  • Opera also does not have the breadth of add-ins as one gets with Firefox’s extensions.
  • A nice feature of Opera that was described is that the new version (8.0) remembers closed tabs and blocked pop-ups by using a trash can button on the location bar to get the closed tab or blocked pop-up.
  • Bookmarks can be a group of tabs, not just a page.
  • A user can “zoom in or out on any page” and Opera does so more accurately than the plug-ins found with other browsers.
  • Surfing with Opera is faster than surfing with IE.
  • NOT supported at JMU
f irefox
Firefox

Uh, the

other

Firefox…

f irefox11
Firefox

The best alternative to IE due to its speed and clean UI

according to PC Magazine.

  • Tabs (Tools/Options)
  • A streamlined, “no nonsense” browser that uses a speedier engine than IE (Gecko).
  • Smart Keywords “including definitions, stock quotes, and weather – right from the location bar.”
  • Firefox does not integrate with certain desktop apps such as Word or Excel (nor do the other non-IE browsers).
  • “Also, Firefox does not render nonstandard DHTML properly. While this isn’t really Firefox’s fault – it happens because some sites don’t follow W3C standards . . . ” (PC Magazine); example to follow later.
  • Breadth of add-ins. Updates and downloads available at www.mozilla.org.
  • Going Corporate 
  • ===================================================================================
  • Browser Name / OS version:Firefox 1.0.6 on both Mac OS X and Windows 2000/XP
  • Support Level: not supported on Mac, but now limited support on PCs; works with some issues
  • e-campus/J-Ess compatibility (part of PeopleSoft, which includes IS-HR, IS-Fin, IS-SA): Works, but has some issues
  • Works for e-Grading Grade Entry on e-campus: Does not work for e-grading
  • Works with eVA: No Reference: http://isapps.jmu.edu/browser/mac.asp

ie privacy settings
IE Privacy Settings
  • Some Web sites require cookies; therefore, if you select a setting that does not allow cookies to be saved on your computer, you might not be able to view certain Web sites.
  • When you change your privacy settings, the changes might not affect cookies that are already on your computer.What should you do to ensure that all of the cookies on your computer meet your privacy settings?
  • Your privacy settings only affect Web sites in the Internet zone.
  • You can also specify custom privacy settings for all Web sites in the Internet zone or for individual Web sites.
ie understanding security zones
IE: Understanding security zones
  • Internet zone: contains anything that is not on your computer or an intranet, or assigned to any other zone. The default security level for the Internet zone is Medium. You can change your privacy settings for the Internet zone on the Privacy tab in Internet Options.
  • Local intranet zone: contains any addresses that don't require a proxy server, as defined by the system administrator. These include sites specified on the Connections tab, network paths (such as \\madison\temp), and local intranet sites. You can add sites to this zone. The default security level for the Local intranet zone is Medium, therefore, Internet Explorer will allow all cookies from Web sites in this zone to be saved on your computer and read by the Web site that created them.
ie understanding security zones20
IE: Understanding security zones
  • Trusted sites zone: contains sites you trust—sites that you believe you can download or run files from without worrying about damage to your computer or data. You can assign sites to this zone. The default security level for the Trusted sites zone is Low, therefore, IE will allow all cookies from Web sites in this zone to be saved on your computer and read by the Web site that created them.
  • Restricted sites zone: This zone contains sites you don't trust—sites that you're not sure whether you can download or run files from without damage to your computer or data. You can assign sites to this zone. The default security level for the Restricted sites zone is High, therefore, IE will block all cookies from Web sites in this zone.
  • ISSUE: Accounts Portal and Content Advisor even if using Trusted Sites. Try it…
