Google updates Gmail IE6users

Google updates Gmail for IE6 users

Many internet users are still getting by with IE6, despite the mass of recent activity in the browser market including Google's launch of Chrome, Firefox 3.1 due in months, Apple hoping Safari will spread across the world of Windows, and Microsoft touting its second beta of IE8.

The update means IE6 users will get access to coloured labels for messages, Gmail Labs features, integration with AOL Instant Messenger, and invisible mode for IM, Google engineer Jon Perlow said on Google's Gmail blog on Friday. The upgrade catches IE6 users up to features available to users of Firefox 3, IE7 and Safari 3.

Google said it worked with Microsoft's IE engineers on some of other issues, including memory-related performance issue when running JavaScript programs in the browser, and Google pared back some user interface features that had been causing trouble for IE6 users.

That seems to be made for developers and same columns are there with some new columns :

Google added the facility of IE ( Interenet Explorer and Mozilla fire Fox a Single place named Crome ) and for developers providing the faility

Here a question arising in my mind is that what's going to happen with add-ons . Either google going to lauch his own add-ons or developmer's need to genrate some add-ons for Google browser Chrome.

Let's See the feed back of user and here i am waitinf for your suggestins and comments.

If you wish to Downlaod Crome : Click Here

Google says:

“Google says that an early test version for Windows will be released tomorrow, and support for Linux and Mac OS X will arrive in future releases. “

Review of Google browser Chrome BETA

Not enough options to change behavour.
No obvious route to / control of browsing history. (eg. 'washers' won't work)
Lost a lot of functionality.
A Javascript 'link' only allows 'inspection' with right-click
Doesn't support 'Title' on mouseovers.

And Below Is that Statement From Google:

A fresh take on the browser

9/01/2008 02:10:00 PM
At Google, we have a saying: “launch early and iterate.” While this approach is usually limited to our engineers, it apparently applies to our mailroom as well! As you may have read in the blogosphere, we hit "send" a bit early on a comic book introducing our new open source browser, Google Chrome. As we believe in access to information for everyone, we've now made the comic publicly available -- you can find it here. We will be launching the beta version of Google Chrome tomorrow in more than 100 countries.

So why are we launching Google Chrome? Because we believe we can add value for users and, at the same time, help drive innovation on the web.

All of us at Google spend much of our time working inside a browser. We search, chat, email and collaborate in a browser. And in our spare time, we shop, bank, read news and keep in touch with friends -- all using a browser. Because we spend so much time online, we began seriously thinking about what kind of browser could exist if we started from scratch and built on the best elements out there. We realized that the web had evolved from mainly simple text pages to rich, interactive applications and that we needed to completely rethink the browser. What we really needed was not just a browser, but also a modern platform for web pages and applications, and that's what we set out to build.

On the surface, we designed a browser window that is streamlined and simple. To most people, it isn't the browser that matters. It's only a tool to run the important stuff -- the pages, sites and applications that make up the web. Like the classic Google homepage, Google Chrome is clean and fast. It gets out of your way and gets you where you want to go.

Under the hood, we were able to build the foundation of a browser that runs today's complex web applications much better. By keeping each tab in an isolated "sandbox", we were able to prevent one tab from crashing another and provide improved protection from rogue sites. We improved speed and responsiveness across the board. We also built a more powerful JavaScript engine, V8, to power the next generation of web applications that aren't even possible in today's browsers.

This is just the beginning -- Google Chrome is far from done. We're releasing this beta for Windows to start the broader discussion and hear from you as quickly as possible. We're hard at work building versions for Mac and Linux too, and will continue to make it even faster and more robust.

We owe a great debt to many open source projects, and we're committed to continuing on their path. We've used components from Apple's WebKit and Mozilla's Firefox, among others -- and in that spirit, we are making all of our code open source as well. We hope to collaborate with the entire community to help drive the web forward.

The web gets better with more options and innovation. Google Chrome is another option, and we hope it contributes to making the web even better.

So check in again tomorrow to try Google Chrome for yourself. We'll post an update here as soon as it's ready.

Update @ 3:30 PM: We've added a link to our comic book explaining Google Chrome.

GOOGLE update Meta tags

Google has updated to maintain accurate meta tags to understand more accurately crawl, index and return sites in search results.

META TAGS : description can be shown in Search results
Here's how Google would interpret meta tags of this sample HTML page:

Title utilized by Google, can be shown in our search results

description content : utilized by Google, can be shown in our search results

revisit-after content=14 days not utilized by Google or other major search engines

verify-v1 content optional, for Google webmaster tools

While the use of a description meta tag is optional and will have no effect on your rankings, a good description can result in a better snippet, which in turn can help to improve the quality and quantity of visitors from our search results.

Google Directory Update PR Scores

Google Directory Update Showing "Real" PR Scores

Google PageRank Directory Clanger by Andy Beard informs us that Google recently pushed out an update to the Google Directory on the 8th of January. What that means is that Google pulled the most recent ODP RDF dump file and updated the Google Directory with that file. But more importantly, Andy also notes that the little PageRank scores found on the left side of each listing in the Google directly have also been updated -- and may be showing the "unpenalized" PR scores for sites.

What does this tell us? Well, like Andy and I noted over here, it appears that the data for that PageRank does not match up even remotely for the sites that saw their PageRank drop due to selling links. Andy highlights three examples of sites that match these criteria.

If you look at the Google Directory PageRank scores for those sites, you will notice that for those examples, Google Directory scores are much higher than those shown on the Google Toolbar.

Yes, the Google Toolbar and the Google Directory have different methods of displaying PageRank scores. Yes, Google's Toolbar is not an exact, nor recent value of the true Google PageRank score for a particular page (true meaning the score Google uses internally as part of its ranking algorithm). Yes, it is possible that the Google Directory is using either a more recent or a version that is much older than what the toolbar is showing. But honestly, there is no way for us to know the dates of those PageRank scores in the Google Directory.

Even with all these questions, it has people thinking that the Google Toolbar penalty for selling links is just a visible one displayed only on the Google Toolbar and is not used internally by Google. In fact, this was my original theory when Google went ahead and penalized sites for selling links.

As a matter of note, the last Google Directory update I am aware of took place on September 25, 2007 and we just had a Google Toolbar PageRank update on January 9-10th of this month.
