New IDN enabled Japanese Browser! Grani!

Looks Like IE7 might have a run for it's money! I downloaded it and tried it, but can't figure much more out than typing in the url. It's got tabs, and it accepts IDN and Jprs.co.jp is pushing it.

Cool. Would like to hear what your native peers think of it also.

All it's going to take now is one big popular site to use strictly idn and the game is over.

Re: New IDN enabled Japanese Browser! Grani!

For any languages' IE7, the first thing I will check is what extention would the url point to if I press Ctrl + Enter after type in IDN. If they all point to www.IDN.com, that is the best.

Re: New IDN enabled Japanese Browser! Grani!

[ENTER] in IE7 still takes you to the search page.
[CTL]-[ENTER] works.

Here’s something that’s always driven me crazy about Internet Explorer: If I type “ebay” into the address bar and hit Enter, I ought to go to http://www.ebay.com. The program should save me having to type the http://www and so on. But Internet Explorer instead treats “ebay” as a *search term,* and takes me to a list of, for example, Google search results for that word.

Still, there’s a nice workaround: if you press Ctrl+Enter (rather than just the Enter key), you force Internet Explorer to treat what you’ve typed as a URL instead of a search term. So you can type “Amazon,” or “eBay,” or “CNN,” and then press Ctrl+Enter to go right there. (This also works in earlier Internet Explorer versions. So does Alt+D to highlight the address bar, ready for typing an address.)

And what if, as a government worker, most of the sites you visit end in .gov? Or what if you work for a nonprofit, and you visit a lot of .orgs? In that case, add the Shift key. Ctrl+Shift+Enter adds, instead of .com, whatever suffix you’ve set up in the Internet Options Control Panel.

Re: New IDN enabled Japanese Browser! Grani!

Where can I download the Japanese version?
I don't c it here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/...e/default.mspx

Nice tips Blast. Some of these shortcuts seem to work for firefox too...
Anyone checked whether in Japanese version of IE, CTRL+ENTER goes to ".com"?

Re: New IDN enabled Japanese Browser! Grani!

I tried installing the Japanese version after the US beta version, but got an error message that I guess means :"Your OS is not Japanese enabled."

Can anyone who has succeeded in installing Japanese beta 2 version, tell me what .tld "Ctrl+Enter" maps to?

The answer might help answer the long running ".com vs .jp" debate.

Still got the same "language error" even when my OS is japanese enabled.

Anyone here successfully installed IE7 Japanese beta?
"Ctrl+Enter" probably will not make much difference, but still nice for either ".com" or ".jp"

I think it will probably only install onto a Japanese Edition of XP, rather than an English Version with Japanese Enabled.

Re: New IDN enabled Japanese Browser! Grani!

Yeah. Just for a laugh I went to my international control panel and dragged Japanese up to #1 language priority and all my menus and everything changed to Japanese.

So Microsoft produce a different product for every language AND then multiple versions of IE for each of their different versions of Windows theat are still out there?

What a bunch of losers!

Computers are supposed to make things easier. MS seems hell-bent on making things as complicated as they possibly can.

Maybe I'm not imaginative enough, but just can't imagine why Japanese application needs Japanese OS to install. Like no one is bilingual or something.

Still don't know the CTRL+ENTER mapping. Deafening silence?

I'm sorry, I can't confirm that about IE7 Japanese.

But, usually, the keyboard shorcuts remain the same regardless of localization.
