If in Windows 10 the situation with branded browsers was very diverse – at the same time users could have three of them (Internet Explorer, “old” Edge and fresh Edge on the Chromium engine), then in Windows 11 everything is much simpler: there is only one browser – Edge based on Chromium. And Internet Explorer is completely excluded from the OS. For the first time in the 25 years since Windows 95 OEM Service Release 2.5, Internet Explorer has left Microsoft.
The company said Internet Explorer is simply “disabled” in Windows 11. As a Microsoft spokesman explained, “the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will not be available on Windows 11. Microsoft Edge is the default browser for Windows 11. The MSHTML engine functions as part of the Windows 11 operating system to enable IE mode in Microsoft Edge“.
Thus, users who critically need Internet Explorer (this archaic browser is still in demand in some areas of activity, for example, in working with government electronic services and in accounting), will have to use Windows 10: despite the “disabling” of Internet Explorer scheduled for June 15, 2022, it will remain part of Windows 10 LTSC (Long-Term Servicing Channel).
Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra users will soon be able to try out Android 13 and One UI 5.0. The public beta version of the firmware will be released in mid-July
Rumors attributed the release of the public beta version of the One UI 5.0 interface based on Android 13 in July this year, and now the source has given a little more detail on this matter. The “window” for the release of the beta version of One UI 5.0 has been clarified – this will happen in the third week of July, from the 11th to the 17th.
The flagship smartphones of the Galaxy S22 series will be the first to receive One UI 5.0, which is logical. But the source writes that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will join the beta testing program pretty quickly. Well, the final version of One UI 5.0 will appear only in October. However, this is still earlier than the release of One UI 4.0 took place at one time.
Popular Action Launcher Android skin gets more free features
Action Launcher is a fairly popular shell for the Android operating system among paid ones. The developers have released Action Launcher v50, which has many more free features for those who do not want to pay for such features.
The app has gone through a lot of improvements over the years to keep up with some of the key improvements made by Google. However, in recent times there has been more and more criticism that the free basic version had a minimum number of features.
The Action Launcher’s implementation of the Freemium system has historically been terrible. We pushed people too aggressively to buy the Plus upgrade, which turned off so many people, and the app was hardly interesting for non-paying users.
Action Launcher v50 is suitable for everyone whether you pay or not. The new version offers an improved search engine that uses the Pixel Launcher. Action search gives you the best results on the web and on your device, as well as some action launcher settings that can be toggled right from the home screen.
In addition to action search and other free features, the action launcher’s own settings are changed. The app adds a settings search bar as well as shortcuts to recently changed settings.
