Microsoft Deepfish Browser
Posted on March 31, 2007 by Chris Duke
You’ve seen all the previews of the new Apple iPhone with its fancy new Safari web browser. Well, Microsoft isn’t standing by idly… its Live Labs group has already developed a technology preview of Deepfish, which has a lot of similar features, including full web page preview and section zoom.
I was able to get a preview of it this past week and it is most impressive, and quite fast. There are a few quirks with it: a few sites I pulled up had issues with the page footer, Flash was not functional (so YouTube videos didn’t work) and a lot of DHTML menus failed. Still, a step in the right direction and this is a technology preview, which (after all) isn’t even Alpha. I can’t wait to see this product in its final release.
