IE Blog

For those of you who haven't already heard, the IE team has a blog and recently they've started to talk about some of the cool features to be found in IE 7 Beta 1 (or planned for RTM).

I've been working pretty closely with the IE team for some time now, but the nature of this job is such that if all goes well then you'll never hear about any of the work we've been doing together.

Rob & Co. will definitely be talking about some of the new features such as Protected Mode and the Anti-Phishing Filter, but remember that Security Features != Secure Features (or for the VB folks: Security Features <> Secure Features 🙂 ).

I hope to one day be able to share some of the work we have done behind-the-scenes, but now is not the time.

    Isn’t the anti-phishing filter something you bought elsewhere?

    Why should anti-phishing based on blacklists? This looks Clariaish. Ever seen those big /etc/hosts file with thousands of banned IPs? That’s totally crazy.

    Anti-phishing can already make a big dent by comparing displayed urls with actual sent urls. So what?

  2. Stephane, please take a look at Tariq’s post on how the filter works when he posts it. It should describe in more detail how things work.

    We’re not evil…
