Microsoft retired Internet Explorer 11 for most users out there. Firefox propagated Total Cookie Protection worldwide. The highlights of the software updates are Ember.js 4.5, Node 18.4, Prettier 2.7, and more. And I got new sets of icons, tools, and generators in the resource section.

Goodbye Internet Explorer

IE 11 has been retired and is now officially out of support in most common places normal users would encounter. If you are unfortunate enough to require the use of an older intranet that relies on that browser, you should start using IE mode in Microsoft Edge instead.

Browser news


All Firefox users now enjoy Total Cookie Protection by default. This policy confines cookies to the site where they were created. This way you can't be tracked anymore as you move from website to website.
