Changes in next version of IE
« on: October 11, 2013, 07:38:59 pm »
This is just a friendly FYI for anyone who uses WinBatch to drive or interact with IE (Internet Explorer) via COM etc...

You may or may not already know this, but in the next release of IE, version 11, Microsoft have made quite a few changes... mostly for the best, but some of the things they have done may affect your scripts and the way they interact with IE's DOM. For example, they have removed "document.all" references to many objects, and changed the way IE identifies itself.
See here for info:

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong. :)
