Two Processes For "Internet Explorer"

Could use a utility from System Internals which outlines child processes a lot better.

Two Processes For "Internet Explorer"

So Firefox is doing it right? Microsoft has given good reasons for separated tab processes, so has Google for Chrome. http://blog.chromium.org/2008/09/multi-process-architecture.html

"Why take up more resources?" Stability is a very good reason why.

"...browsers that put everything in one process face real challenges for robustness, responsiveness, and security. If one web app causes a crash in the rendering engine, it will take the rest of the browser with it, including any other web apps that are open. Web apps often have to compete with each other for CPU time on a single thread, sometimes causing the entire browser to become unresponsive. Security is also a concern, because a web page that exploits a vulnerability in the rendering engine can often take over your entire computer."

That is how it works!
The browser chrome is in its own process
Then tabs have there own process.

Suppose to be that way.

Google Chrome has also gone this way.

This isn't the place for that kind of submission.
Send it to Microsoft's bug reporting.

Centralize all *.log files generated by OS to one folder

There is in fact a central place for logs. However it seems nothing wants to take advantage of it. Event Viewer

The Ribbon disappears in narrow windows

I don't think I've seen UMPCs with anything less then 800x600. Not to say there isn't!

No way to tell if a window is minimised, maximised, active, or inactive in Taskbar.

Wrote on February 1, 2009, 8:25pm

The active window is highlighted...what more do you need?
If a windows is minimized I don't need to know I don't need to know maximized windows, when they become important and need to use them I'll switch. That is how its always been in Windows! Multiple indicators of different window states would just end up confusing users.

How small? well below 640! Yeah...
So I don't see how severity or impact is above low.

<7025> Bring back these Paint 7000 icons

Wrote on February 1, 2009, 7:13pm

@billerr, If the window is not wide enough the shapes and the color pallet turn into icons. It does this in build 7000 as well. Give a wide enough window and its not a problem.

The shape icon in build 7000 is the same but minus color.

Provide Optional Inbuilt Face Recoginition through Webcam to Logon Windows 7

Facial Recognition is a lot more complex then finger print scanning. I seriously doubt this would make it into Windows 7.

"Folder In Use" because of thumbnails

Wrote on January 29, 2009, 3:31pm

Why don't you answer just one question, you keep skipping it.

"Now why you are getting "thumbs.db" is unexplained? Either the files came from a Windows 2000/ME/XP/2003 machine or as I heard Vista creates them on network drives."

As I already said this problem as been fixed in Windows Vista, because it uses a central thumbnail database, it no longer creates thumbs.db. Except as possibly on networked drives.

And you might want to read up on asynchronous.
